    Can I omit the honey ? If yes ,should I use the same amount of ingredients or I should use more coconut cream to compensate the honey (for the texture )

    These are great! I threw in some organic whey protein powder instead of maca (optional, I know) for a little protein boost, and they were great! A big hit with my 20 somethings kids, who are into power snacking!

    do you think I could use stevia instead of honey? Or would it change the texture too much?

    Do you think that nutritional yeast would throw off the taste? I’m trying to make my “goodies” as nutrient dense as possible, and I like throwing nutritional yeast into many things, but I do have a problem with the taste, so I’m afraid the taste might come through in this, but I think I’ll add what I call my triple seed mix, chia, flax and hemp, as well as maca, I use it all the time, I wonder how well they would do if I tried to cover them with homemade chocolate, can’t wait till I go to the store next week and get some more coconut flakes to make the coconut butter, I make coconut milk (cream, I use less water), from it all the time. You could call me the coconut grandma. But I get most of my ideas from you and expand, I use recipes as guidelines, most of the time.

      I don’t think the ‘cheesiness’ of the Nutritional Yeast would be appreciated. The Maca powder adds many great minerals, with out much taste.

    Can coconut oil be used instead of coconut butter?

    Reply
    • The Coconut Mama February 28, 2015, 6:19 pm

      I wouldn’t use coconut oil. Coconut butter is more like a nut butter and gives more texture. I think these would be too oily if you used coconut oil.

    Thinking of adding some chia seeds to this. Looks yummy!

    so i used the coconut butter for the berry recipe right after i was finished making it and i did not heat it. It seemed warm. Now my batter will not get hard. Is that the reason?

    Some schools and schools maintain vigorous policies and make an attempt
    to find and block all these “proxy servers” fast. hi, I am John Buttler working as bank manager in new york city and my

      If you have the right equipment you can make it with shredded coconut flakes.

    When you say 16oz. cups of coconut butter do you mean 16 oz. or a cup? Is coconut cream concentrate the same as coconut butter? These look delicious!

      Sorry I fixed that in the recipe! It’s 16 ounces or 2 cups. Coconut cream concentrate is the same as coconut butter.

      The Maca is an optional ingredient. I’m sure homemade coconut butter would work great! 🙂
