I just made these using soy milk instead of coconut milk, melted coconut oil instead of canola oil, and Dutch-processed cocoa. They turned out just as great as they do using the original recipe. They are not completely cooled yet, but my sweet honey has eaten three already. I must admit that they are a little more challenging to frost while warm, but oh-so-good!
