Whoa, 20-21 carbs per bar is hardly a low carb snack. All that sweetener! Can't see this as a healthy snack for diabetics. It's practically pure sugar--low GI or not.

Mix together chopped nuts, cocoa powder, peanut butter, coconut flakes & flax seeds for a far healthier high fiber, low carb bar at a fraction of the cost.
This sounds great!!! I will definitely have to try it but of course I will modify it like I do every recipe I try. I don't really care for peanut butter but really like almond butter or sesame tahini. Thanks for the great tip!
20-carbs peanutbar is good when our son´s bg goes down (under5 but not under 3 or 4 yet) while he´s running all over yard, that bring bg up slowly enough and give energy to continue running... but low carb diet I don´t think those are not good thing...
there is many "diet bar´s" which are really carbsbombs.... so is "´s same carbs than originally and taste is awfull..
These my opinions....
But original sandwich with tomatoslice and little bit cheese on it runs still better than bars but those one-packed bars are easy put in son´s pocket and then he must not come home for eating, he can joy playing and bg is ok, and so I have no extra heart jumpings while he´s playing...=)
I guess it would not be a good idea for him to run around with a tomato sandwich in his pocket!
Gerri, you never fail to amaze me. This nut, PB, coconut snack sounds fantastic! Ill toss in some powdered sweetener to solidify the PB a bit and walla! granola snacks!
Aaww, you're making me blush. Wrote that a while ago! I don't use flaxseeds any more. Problems associated the estrogenic effects of flaxseeds. Several countries have banned flaxseeds for human consumption. I now use chia seeds. Superior taste & no health risks.

I never heard of Chis seeds and was just learning about flaxseed meal and was considering trying. Thanks for the warning of the estrogenic effects. But when i look up chia seeds, i see references to drinks and gels which claim to help in weight loss, provide energy and displace coffee from the diet. Are they also used as a meal to replace flour ?
Chia seeds aren't sold ground, at least that I've seen. I grind them in an eelctric coffee grinder & use the meal in baking (1/4-1/2 cup) along with almond flour & coconut flour. Very light delicate flavor. Adds a ton of fiber & healthy oils. I've also used as a thickener.

I too love chia seeds. Do the flax seeds raise or lower estrogen? I know that soy is loaded with estrogen, in fact I try to keep it away or in moderation from my men folk (not wanting to upset their balances.) But I never heard anything about flax.

This sounds great~ Would you add this to Low Carb Recipe Swap?

I would love to try a variety pack.... Great site!!!! :)
