    This is another recipe from the Almond Board that is tastefull but can be made more healthy by substituting Truvia / Stevia for the sugar. I would also substitute a chocolate protein powder for the cocoa. - 1/8/13

    Sugar..out, Splenda...in. Worked well, taste delicious, but I may cut back the baking time to 10 minutes, toss, then 10 minutes again. Thanks! Great for low carb. - 1/8/13

    People keep talking about making it healthier by using Splenda instead of sugar....UH that makes it fewer calories not healthier. Sugar is a natual sweetener, not that many calories actually....but hey, if you prefer Splenda .... - 1/16/13

    I'd try this with but with maybe 1 tsp of sugar. Can't do Stevia. Messes with my stomach. I don't like sweet stuff anyway. But it's nice to have an alternative to plain. - 1/8/13

    Hi
    This recipe sounds delicious, which would be a portion control problem for me. I have noticed many of the recipes here are for cookies etc - IMO it's best to give these things a miss if one is trying to lose weight. 1 plain almond is 7 yummy calories - I eat 10 for a remarkably satisfying snack. - 1/8/13

  • Addictive, but what happened to the calculation for the remainder of the ingredients? This is therefore misleading especially for those of us counting calories, carbs, fats etc - 3/20/13

  • I will sub Splenda for Sugar. ;D - 3/16/13

  • I read the other day that truvia and stevia are no better for you than sugar. I prefer almonds natural. In fact I likely eat too many. When I have them in the house I can't stop. - 3/16/13

  • Can't wait to try it! To the folks would ask about using coffee grounds instead, I wouldn't recommend it. If you don't have instant coffee, try adding a tablespoon or two of liquid coffee. Coffee grounds do not dissolve into coffee, they must be brewed. - 3/16/13

  • I like the idea of lowering the sugar. Your body treats Splenda like a sugar if used over time. Can you use Ground Coffee? - 1/16/13

    I experimented by melting chocolate chips and adding some instant coffee granules, diluted just enough to make it all smooth. Then stirred in the almonds. nummm. - 1/9/13
