  1. Is there any varation of this recipe that doesn't use almonds? I'm intolerant to them, but this sounds like an awesome thing to have in the cupboard or in a lunchbox to keep u going through the day. If there is it would be sweet if u could email me it at or hit me up on twitter @officernasty88, we both follow each other btw. Thanks
