*Aquafaba or liquid from canned chickpeas or garbanzo beans can be saved to be used in other recipes like the Cashew + Peanut Bars
*Nut-Free: Use sunflower seeds instead of cashews
*FODMAP Swaps: Start with 1 medjool date and add ½ cup maple syrup; due to chickpeas, start with 3-4 bites and increase as tolerated
