  • Gluten free: As is.
  • Nut free: Omit the cashews, or replace with hemp seeds or toasted sunflower seeds.
  • Sugar free: Omit the coconut sugar, or replace with an equal amount of xylitol, or a pinch of stevia.
  • Oil free: As is.
  • Weight loss: Fabulously low in calories and fat, serve a portion of this as is with an optional topping of pan-fried tofu for extra satiety if you like.
