From the photo, it’s pretty obvious that the nuts weren’t mixed with the chocolate /coconut oil mixture before being spread in the pan. Did you just spread the chocolate/coconut oil mix in the pan and sprinkle the nuts on top?
Katja Heino says
The nuts are actually folded into the mixture before spreading into the pan. You can give the pan a little jiggle to help the nuts rise to the surface a bit more. Thanks for stopping by!
Any suggestions On what i Can use to replace The honey? I’m on the Candida diet and honey, maple syrup, and sugar is not allowed….
Katja Heino says
Hi, Kari! If you are on the Candida diet, these bars may not be for you right now. You could definitely make them without sweetener, but they may not taste the way you would like them to. Good for you for taking the time to work on your health. Your body will thank you. 🙂
Suzanne smith says
I make a simular bar with 3 to 1 ratio. I’ve done it with zero sweetener and it’s still good. 3 cups dry
( I cup nuts, 1 cup seeds, 1 cup other, oats or puffed rice or coconut).to 1 cup wet ( coconut oil alone is fine) toss some coco to make it chocolate or zest to make it not chocolatey. Can even toss a little cinnamon or salt whatever flavor you want. Mix and refergerate. So simple and yummy
So I tried out the recipe and love the flavour but I have a problem with the chocolate melting very quickly and turning liquid. Is there anything I can do to stop this?
Katja Heino says
Hi, Katie! Do you mean the bars melt quickly when you are eating them? Yes, coconut oil melts at around 76″F. So I keep these in the fridge on warm days. If you want them to be more temperature stable, you could try coconut butter instead of coconut oil. Thicker and will not melt as fast. Hope that helps. 🙂
This is very good, thank you. Next time I make this, I’ll increase the recipe by 50% to better fill a 9×13 pan — too thin when fully spread out.
