    I did not add the water called for with the egg replace because I have read if using spelt flour, to reduce any water slightly. I use egg replacer because I am a vegan. Original recipe also calls for cinnamon and nutmeg, but those are no-nos for Os, so I don't use them. These are also fat-free.
