    • I did not use any nuts in my recipe as my kids are too picky with that kind of stuff, but from past recipes I have tried, I feel like walnuts are the best choice
    • I did not have buttermilk on hand, but I made my own by combining one cup of 2% milk with 1 tbsp of white vinegar, you can also use 1 tbsp of lemon juice.
    • Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.
    • Store in the freezer for 2-3 months.
