        This recipe looks delicious but not to keen on peanuts; Has anyone tried it using almonds/almond butter instead?

    These are dangerously delicious! I made mine with adding 1/2 cup coconut, homemade peanut butter, and 1/4 cp of the ground chia seeds, 1/4 cp ground flax seeds. Yummy!

      Hi Rachel,

      Thanks for your question! Unfortunately, we don’t think they would hold together very well. Please feel free to let us know if you have any other questions!

    Could this still work by removing the chocolate drizzle and maybe just add it into the bar mix?

    Also, it’s hard for me to get my hands on coconut oil (or I’ve never seen it in my supermarket), is there some substitute or can I just drop from the recipe?

    Do you think that 1 1/2 cups of ground sunflower seeds would work to replace the chia seeds and the almond flour? My grand daughter needs to take nut-free lunches as her school is nut-free?
