In terms of finding a butter substitute for baking, the commercial soya, sunflower or, even better, homemade vegan spread here are good choices. Coconut oil can also be used on toast. This spread requires ordering a special ingredient over the internet: liquid soy lecithin. It’s relatively cheap and will last a long time, as you don’t use much in the recipe. The other unusual ingredient is xanthan gum, which can often be found in the baking sections of supermarkets. People on a gluten-free diet use it for baking, as it adds stretchiness. Once you have these two ingredients, this recipe is easy, and it tastes really good. Being made of coconut oil, it’s also very good for you and not too processed. Instead of adding salt, you can add another flavouring of your choice, such as Marmite or nutritional yeast, or you can add finely chopped garlic with the salt.
