  3. In a separate bowl using a fork whisk the eggs, honey,essence, melted butter or oil.
  4. Combine the wet and dry mixtures forming a slightly crumbly dough.
  5. Add in the rice milk or other non dairy milk, this should form a dough, not too wet or dry.
  6. Using your hands mix in the walnuts and apple.
  7. Taking sections, press the dough down to about 2″ and mold into your preferred shape.
  8. Place on a lined tray and bake for 26 minutes cover after the first 15 minutes with tinfoil to avoid the tops looking over done.
