    This slice was loved by everyone and will be a regular treat for our family. I replaced a few ingredients as we didn't have them all; hazelnuts for almonds, chia seeds for flaxseeds, rice puffs for sunflower seeds. I used extra puffs and this worked well , lightening the mix. I didn't have protein powder and didn't open a tin of coconut cream for such a small amount, just made a version of cc with dried coconut. I omitted the sugar as the dates are very sweet. I soaked the cashews for an extra creamy topping.Next time I would reduce or leave out the honey in the icing as the honey flavour masked the zesty lemon we love. I made a double batch, freezing half which was great for the lunch box, especially for warm days when the coconut would melt. We loved them frozen too, they are like an ice-cream slice! Lots of minor changes to the original recipe but it just shows how versatile this recipe is just using what you have at hand! We love it!
