Can egg substitute and non-dairy milk be used in place of the egg and low-fat milk? Also, is it possible to get the nutritional info. on the recipe? Thanks!

Not too shabby, I served them with the "Moroccan Potato, Carrot, and Chickpea Stew" I used almond milk, because we're not fans of dairy milk, however I will probably add a little more meal/flour next time, because the mixture was too runny to shape. I just poured the batter into muffin cups though and they were quite yummy :) will definitely make again!
