  8. In place of the ground almonds, you can use ground hazelnuts or cashews.
  9. If you can't find hempseeds, you can use ground flax seeds or coarsely ground sunflower or pumpkin seeds.
  10. For a nice variation, you can add chocolate chips.
  11. Use other flavorings such as orange zest and juice in place of the lemon or you can use 1 tsp vanilla extract along with or in place of the lemon. In this case, you may need to add a Tbs of water or juice to get a sticky consistency.

Notes:

Aine's tip: If you can't find hempseeds, you can use ground flax seeds.
