    Sounds delectable! I'll have to figure out a sub for the agave- the stuff is even more processed than sugar, and I don't care forthe taste. Maybe maple syrup?

    Yeah I hear that agave is total junk so I would have to use something else for that.  Do you know the nutritional info for these?  They look delicious.

    No i don't.  You could probably look up each of the ingredients and kinda put together some nutritional info.

    aawwww . . . . I could never eat raw cacao chips because they were always too hard, like little rocks.

    I entered the recipe in on MFP, and the whole recipe is about 1800 calories (using 1/3 cup maple syrup).  I don't know how many servings it is, but I am SO making this tomorrow, so I might know better soon!
