    What exactly is coconut sugar and where can I find it?? Liquid vanilla stevia too…..
    That’s not something I find in my local grocer. Would Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s carry this? Thanks in advance. Can’t wait to try these!

    @Denise, Denise, yes, you can get both at a Whole Foods (not sure about Trader Joe’s, as we don’t have them here in Toronto). You can also order both via onlines stores like amazon or iherb. And I’m sure Amy has some for offer on her own online store, here on her blog (maybe under the “Shopping List” in the “Recipes” tab?). :)

    Amy, thank you so much for that amazingly sweet intro! :D I love sharing so much in common (but don’t think I’ll aim for the baby at this point). ;) xo

    How could I make these nut free? We follow gf, sf, and nut-free diet and I would LOVE to make this recipe!

    Ricki Reply:

    @Sarah, there is quite a bit of almonds (1 cup), so I wouldn’t *recommend* switching out the nuts. . . however. . . if you’d like to try sunflower seeds (maybe 3/4 cup), give it a go! And do let me know how they turn out. :)

    Amazing recipe Ricki! I love that they have hemp seeds in them. I will indeed be trying these, and getting my kids to eat them too! We might dip ours in peanut butter…

    Thanks, Ricki!

    We are contemplating putting my son on a grain free diet so I am adding these to my “things to bake soon” list!

    Yea! And I have hemp seeds already!

    Looks delicious. I am not a big fan of stevia. What would you recommend substituting? How much vanilla extract do you think I would need to add in? Look forward to your suggestions!

    [Reply]

    Ricki Reply:

    @Danielle, Since stevia is a major part of the sweetner here, if you used something else (say more coconut sugar, or maple syrup), the texture would change. You can certainly try it, but I’d be guessing at about 1/4 cup more coconut sugar. The recipe already has 2 tsp vanilla–I don’t think you need to add any more. Let me know how they turn out if you give it a try. :)

    Those look so moist and chocolatey and delicious! I love bite sized treats. And I love that ingredient list! I’ve never used hemp seeds in a recipe like this, sounds like I have to try it!

    I made these last night and I really liked them! Even my boyfriend, who seemingly automatically dislikes something the moment he finds out that it’s gluten-free, vegan, or sugar-free really liked them and asked for thirds :) I do have trouble with stevia’s aftertaste, so I’m going to experiment next time by replacing half of the stevia with a touch of maple syrup. I’ll let you know how it goes :)

    Danielle Reply:

    Definitely keep us posted on the maple syrup! I agree with the stevia aftertaste and would be excited to hear of any other sweeteners you experiment with :)

    Is it alright to substitute something else for hemp? Chia? Flax?

    Just an fyi, sugar is sugar. Whether it’s coconut sugar, agave nectar or honey. They may be lower glycemic than other options, but especially if you have candida you should still be avoiding these completely. These seem like a pretty good option if you’ve only had vague symptoms, but for anything beyond that this is a big no.

    [Reply]

    Ricki Reply:

    @Jade, I think it depends which diet you’re following. I know many holistic nutritionists here in the Toronto are that allow coconut sugar from thr first stage. Having said that, I didn’t touch coconut sugar until Stage 3 (after being on the diet about a year). I’d suggest that people go with what works for them–if you know that you react to it, by all means, don’t eat it! The recipe was designed for the ACD stage 3 and later. :)

    Can I double or triple this recipe? Only 9 little brownies is simply not enough for this household. Thanks.

    @Alfa Katzz, I’ve doubled it in the past with no problems. Haven’t tripled it yet, though–if you do, let me know how they turn out! :)

    I can’t have almonds or pecans. Can I substitute walnuts? Maybe cashews? Which would you recommend?
