Granulated sugar voids all the benefit of the other ingredients.
Aura, that depends on the type of granulated sugar. We recommend using whole cane sugar. Heavenly Organics Whole Cane Sugar is 100% USDA Organic, Evaporated Whole Cane Juice, Sun Dried, Herbally Purified, Unrefined, Fairly Traded, Sustainably Produced, and Pesticide and Herbicide Free. You can learn more about Heavenly Organics Whole Cane Sugar here: I have edited the recipe so that it does not say to use just any "granulated" sugar; now the ingredient list specifies what kind of granulated sugar: whole cane sugar. If you prefer, you may also substitute the whole cane sugar with raw honey. General guidelines for swapping sugar for honey: 1 cup granulated cane sugar = 1/4 – 1/3 cup raw honey Start with less, not more. Be prepared to nix 20-40% of liquids in recipes requiring over 1 cup/128 grams/4.5 ounces of honey.

Where did you purchase the ice pop molds? They look easy to squeeze up and prevent dripping. TY. Rita Chamberlin
Where do I find Unsweetened Coconut?
Admin - Orissa
Shirley, you can find high quality unsweetened dried coconut here: Tropical Traditions 100% natural Shredded Coconut, Coconut Flakes, and Coconut Chips are made from organic dried coconuts in the Philippines that are grown with no fertilizers or pesticides. This premium dried coconut contains no additives or preservatives, and is not sweetened. Unlike most dried coconut on the market, our dried coconut products are not treated with sulfites to keep them white. They are a great addition to recipes and baking, or just for snacks! Note: The Shredded Coconut is a very small cut, suitable for baking, such as making macaroons. The Coconut Flakes are a larger shredded coconut cut, perfect for garnishing or toppings, such as the top of a coconut cream pie. The Coconut Chips are a much larger cut that can be used as a snack food. You can mix them with nuts and dried fruit, for example.

looks yummy ! any nutritional info available? especially wondering if it might be low carb- thanks !
Admin - Orissa
Thank you, Tricia! Thank you for your question. Since these recipes are user-submitted and free to everyone, it would be extremely time consuming and difficult to draw up an accurate nutritional info chart for each and every one. There are many sites online that have nutritional info calculators you could use to try to get an approximate reading on. Hope that is helpful!

Is this like a gingerbread cookie? Sounds delicious! Do you drop the dough balls and bake as is - they spread as they bake? Thanks.

No Bake Almond Pulp Crackers View Comments (1)
Great use of leftover Almond Pulp after making Almond milk. If you don't have a dehydrator could you put it in a low oven? What temperature and for how long would you suggest?

Gluten and Dairy Free Tapioca Cake (“Bolo de Tapioca”) View Comments (2)
Hi Myra, Sounds like it may be a good idea but I haven't tried using chia seeds as a replacement yet so I'm not sure how it would turn out.
Hi. Can chia seeds be subbed for the tapioca pearls? Thanks.

Coconut Cashew Fudge View Comments (4)
Debbie Riggs
I am very disappointed in this recipe, especially since I was making it for Christmas. Yes, it did take 10 minutes but it lumped together, had way too many cashews for the fudge and the fudge was dark, just like powder is, not creamy light brown. The taste was not acceptable and cooling did not solve the problem of the oil separating. Do the Tropical Traditions people make the recipe to be sure it will make the same as the picture? Now I have to get more supplies to make my own version of fudge that I know will turn out. 😞
Admin - Orissa
Debbie, thank you for sharing your concerns, perhaps some of our other readers can help troubleshoot this recipe with you and share tips they have with making it successfully. We do not test every recipe submission that we publish. We ask that the authors who submit the recipes MUST have already tested and know their recipe works and also include their own photo of their finished product to prove that the recipe works.
I've made a similar version of this recipe and it does NOT get sugary. You keep it chilled in an air-proof container and it is very creamy and delicious and HEALTHIER than regular fudge!
A tasty combination of some of my favorites, quick & easy to make!
I am confused. I make a lot of fudge and I always follow the recipe that says to bring it to a boil until it reaches the soft ball stage (140 on candy thermometer), and then to add the nuts and such - - and then beat it until it turns glossy where one then puts into a pan - - won't this fudge get sugary if one does not boil the foundation?

I enjoyed these! I'm still new to gluten-free baking... but let's be honest you can't go wrong with chocolate & bananas! I did add a tsp. of vanilla... a necessity in my baking book! I made them mini muffins for easy storage and plan on freezing a few for quick snacks on work days! Thanks!

Do you think a variation on this recipe of sprouted-cooked quinoa and almond butter would work?
did not mention the temperature of the oven..............
