    1 =CUP= of eggs sounds very wrong to me. Is that a mistake?

    Will it still taste good if we leave out the walnuts?

    • Since the walnuts are in pieces and ground, it might not work so well, you could leave out the pieces, but would have to sub something for the ground, you could try oat flour or flaxseed.
