What can you use instead of the stevia. Can you use sugar or honey and how much?
Your recipe sound delicious.

I had created my own very similar treats with slightly different ingredients. I have felt that coconut oil made mine unpleasantly greasy. I use coconut milk. I also like to use flavored stevia as well as xylitol. I like to get xylitol made from birch so I can avoid GMO corn. I like to add toasted nuts such as hazelnuts. Toasted coconut is good too. Swapping organic peanut butter for the sunbutter is a great option if you can eat peanuts. Tastes better I think. I use unsweetened carob chips instead of powder, it hardens up better in the freezer. I have to stay sugar free. I am sure that raw sugar, raw honey, agave, brown rice syrup, etc...
could be used in lieu of the stevia and xylitol and would be much better in taste and texture. Play with the ingredients and the proportions. Have fun.

These look great!!! I've just started switching to stevia to get all sugar out of our diets. And I stalked up on both coconut oil and sunflower butter last week. These look great.
Do you serve them frozen or thaw to serve? My kids aren't fond of food when its frozen.

Carole - try it with stevia - your body will love you for it.

Chris: since you're using coconut oil, they will thaw pretty quickly it's best to serve them at least cold from the fridge.

Adam, how much xylitol and coconut milk do you use in this recipe.

Could you substitute honey for the stevia? If so, how much? Thanks!
