My Kitchen Sink Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup dark chocolate chips or chunks

I hate having to be gluten-free because it seems like every recipe I see lately has almonds which I can't have.  Boo!

These look wonderful.. except, I'm allergic to coconut. What can I use instead of coconut?

I think I'll make these for an upcoming hiking/camping trip.  They sound perfect for gluten-free energy on the run!  Thanks;)
