    Notes

    Avoid any refined salt or salt with added iodine or aluminum. I typically use pink Himalayan sea salt which is rich in naturally occurring minerals.
    If you're using a nut or seed butter, instead of making it yourself from the raw nuts/seeds as this recipe does, avoid ingredients such as any additional oils because they are usually highly processed, rancid and carcinogenic.
