Running "approve" function in Moralis

I first attempted to useEvmRunContractFunction but after some reading figured it was read only. I then went to v1docs to “executeFunction” however I get the error moralis__WEBPACK_IMPORTED_MODULE_21__.default.executeFunction is not a function

Kindly find my code below and advise me on the way forward.

const sendOptions = {
      contractAddress: tokenAddress,
      functionName: "approve",
      abi: tokenAbi,
      params: {
        spender: contractAddress,
        amount: balance,
    const transaction = await Moralis.executeFunction(sendOptions);

Hi, make you are using the latest moralis-v1 version
