These can keep for a couple of days in airtight container at room temperature. They can also be frozen in airtight container for up to a month.
The original recipe calls for melted butter, but as you can see, I substituted with vegetable oil.
The 1/4 cup of vegetable oil can be replaced with applesauce.
The all purpose flour can be replaced with whole wheat flour.
