    I made this today and the flavor is yummie,  but Thermione was seriously struggling with mixing it.  I had to mix it way longer than in the recipe and also had to add coconut oil to make it a bit more mixable. Any idea what i did wrong?  Really the recipe itself has only got mostly dry ingredients though.  Anyone else had this problem?
