Would it be possible to substitute the sugar with honey or stevia, and if so, how would I need to alter the recipe?

When my husband and I started eating more healthy, we had to say good-bye to the best mint brownies you've ever had. These bars made me feel like I was eating them again! So easy. The only thing I would add is a tablespoon or two more of honey to each layer. They just weren't quite sweet enough for me.

Could you possibly use guar gum instead of the xantham gum?

how many carbs are in this and how much sugar?
Admin - Orissa
Jimmy, 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!

What is sprouted about this recipe?

The flax seeds themselves are meant to be sprouted before using.

Personally, putting it in the oven isn't necessary. Seemed to cook through just fine on the stove. Really delicious and simple recipe.

Where's the mushroom?
Admin - Orissa
Sally, the recipe has been updated: 3/4 cup mushrooms, finely chopped.
trisha
Which mushroom and how many? I didn't see any mushroom mentioned. Sounds good and I would try if you could reprint it with the mushroom information. Do you mean the meat is shaped like a mushroom?
Admin - Orissa
Trisha, any kind of mushroom will work, depends on personal preference. The ingredient was missing originally when it was typed up. It is updated now. Use 3/4 cup mushrooms, finely chopped.

I love this pie! I'm trying to eat more healthily & this pie satisfies my sweet tooth, but I'm able to eat a small slice with some fresh fruit & be satisfied.....no craving more or addictive quality at all. Blessings to the one who submitted it!

So glad to hear that, Ranae <3

Coconut Flour Chocolate Cake View Comments (1)
Night Owl Kitchen
Made this last night, substituted the sugar with granulated stevia. Think I'll add a dollop of sour cream to help add some extra moisture to the cake next time. Other than that very nice, rich chocolate flavor. Going to blog about this recipe soon.
Admin - Orissa
Sour cream sounds like a nice add, Night Owl Kitchen! Honey or maple syrup are also both very good, traditional sweeteners that can be used in place of granulated sugar. You might enjoy this article: https://healthimpactnews.com/2014/how-to-use-raw-honey-in-place-of-sugar-in-baking/

I eat Paleo , can you substitute the sugar for honey or maple syrup and the flour for coconut ?
Admin - Orissa
Diane, yes. Here is an article about How to Use Raw Honey in Place of Sugar in Baking: https://healthimpactnews.com/2014/how-to-use-raw-honey-in-place-of-sugar-in-baking/ Here is an article about How to Use Coconut Flour, I hope this article will be a helpful guide to you as you experiment with converting a wheat flour recipe to coconut flour: http://healthimpactnews.com/2013/how-to-use-coconut-flour-3/ A lot of recipes containing wheat flour can be converted to 100% coconut flour, but this will take time and practice. Coconut flour behaves differently from recipe to recipe, so a lot of tweaking and adjusting will have to be done. If you do convert this to coconut flour, I'm sure other readers would benefit from hearing you share what you did, if you want to come back and comment about your experience with this recipe, later. <3

Aura
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: https://healthytraditions.com/healthytraditions/traditional-food/sweeteners/whole-sugar.html 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 do I find Unsweetened Coconut?
Admin - Orissa
Shirley, you can find high quality unsweetened dried coconut here: https://tropicaltraditions.com/traditional-food/coconut-products/glyphosate-tested-coconut-flakes.html 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.

Interesting recipe for me, specifically in that I'm wondering (hoping) to substitute Einkorn flour for the coconut flour. That's chiefly because I have plenty of Einkorn on hand but no Coconut flour. What do you think?
Joy
I would like to know how to get a better "rise" out of the bisquit. Mine tasted delicious but were a little flat. BUT I absolutely would make this recipe again. Love these. Great job Dawn from Syracuse.

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