I love Tangelos, actually would like to use that Zest!

Have you ever tried selling your bars?
One thing I have never seen, is a home made protein bar shop, personally I think it could be as big as Starbucks! Let me know if you want to partner!

No reason to limit ingredients when the sources are whole.

Provides recipe for bar with 12 ingredients — 11, if you count the zest and juice as 1.
Not saying it’s a bad recipe. Merely found it a bit amusing.

Hmm, that is a tough one! I can really sympathize, as I have a dairy allergy, so I know the importance of tending to these things. I’m sorry, I don’t have any good recommendations for you here, as the coconut manna is sort of the glue that holds the “frosting” together. One thing you could do is make the bars without the coating, but I don’t know that they would hold together as well. Sorry!!

Angela

Could you make a suggestion for a substitute for the coconut ingredients? Many thanks!

Interesting! I haven’t had that issue. Is the coconut oil/manna mixture still warm when you put in the lemon juice? If you can spread it, that is good – I should rephrase from “pour” to “spread” – it is a thick coating so it won’t really pour like liquid.

Also, add the stevia into the coconut oil/manna mixture when you’re melting it. Sorry about that omission – I’ll fix.

Thanks,
Angela

There is no way it pours. I have to spread the topping. Also, when do it add the stevia?? Help

No, it won’t harden up properly, unfortunately (neither will honey).

Cheers!
