    These look amazing! So simple and perfect to grab as a snack when leaving the house in a rush. Would probably be amazing with some cinnamon & cayenne in there as a variation, or matcha! Thanks for the recipe, Nic!

    Thanks Emma! Your variations sound excellent too. Now I am confident with getting the base right, I am going to play with flavourings etc. Hope yours turn out well!
