What do our readers say about this recipe?

“Oh my gosh!!! Got this recipe from your blog today. As soon as I saw it I ran into the kitchen to get all the ingredients I could find in my pantry. Delicious, healthy, easy tasty treat! Thank you so much!!!”

“I just made these bars for the first time tonight. They are delicious! The flax adds a great nutty taste, and they are not too sweet.”

“I just wanted to say that I love your blog! I’m just starting on the Paleo Diet, and you are definitely one of my favorites. I found your recipe for the paleo bread at Whole Foods yesterday, and made it this morning. It tastes fantastic! My husband asked me if I could make him some almond flour bread since he hasn’t had any since becoming paleo, and if there is any chance of you publishing this recipe so he can make it. He’s been stuck on grain free foods due to kidney damage, but since he hasn’t had any grain-free bread, he was skeptical.”

“I tried to make this recipe into muffins. It didn’t work well. The batter was very runny, so I added more flour and finally ended up with a big mess. I needed to use my mini blender to grind the flax seeds up, but still couldn’t get it mixed well enough.”
