This was sooooo delicious! And easily modifiable, too. Looking forward to the chance to play with the recipe again.

nowheregirl, I'm sure those substitutions would be great! Did you ever try them? I'd be curious what changed, if anything.


This looks AWESOME! Do you think I can substitute the agave with dates? Or date sugar? And if I take the salt out would it change the taste a lot? I definitely want to make this!
