P.S. If you are looking for Cocoa Nibs, the most cost-effective place we have found them is our old stand by, Amazon. The Alive and Aware Organic brand seems to be the best pricing per pound ($9.95).

  1. Where do you find the cocoa nibs? Are they down a baking aisle or do you have to go to a specialty store to get them?

    1. Yes! The only one I would caution you to swap to your taste is the stevia for sugar. Stevia tends to be a bit sweeter than sugar so you will likely need less.

  3. I Love Coconut Sugar. It's also a 1:1 ratio. It is great for diabetes "per Dr OZ" ..as it will not raise your sugar levels:)

    1. That's a great suggestion - we will check into how the coconut sugar is processed though. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Are the cocoa nibs a better option over dark chocolate (at least 60% cocoa)?

    1. Cocoa Nibs are 100% cocoa, so yes, they are a better choice; however, they do have a bitter taste without the milk, sugar and cream that is added to chocolate. I would shoot for chocolate products that are at least 70% cocoa.

  5. What's a good swap for flour? What are your thoughts on vital gluten flour and soy flour?

  6. I like to buy baby food jars of applesauce. That way I have small amounts of pre-packaged ingredients and the large jar of applesauce won't go bad in the fridge.

    1. I do that, too! Works great.

    2. I take what left of the big jar of apple sauce and freeze it in 1 cup containers and thaw them as I need them. It tends to be cheaper over all.

  7. Coconut flour is our most recent swap.
