    How can you make these if you do not have a dehydrator?

      Hi Jammie,

      You could use your oven — turn it to 100 F, then proceed with the instructions above. It will probably dehydrate faster, so check it at 6 hrs instead of 12 to see about flipping it over. Also you could use a wooden spoon or crunched up can to keep the oven door propped open a little bit to increase the airflow.

    What can I substitute for golden flax meal? I am allergic to flax seeds – is it made from flax seed?. The recipe looks great – can’t wait to try it.

      Hi Pam,
      Try milled chia seeds. That should be a good sub. Enjoy!

    When using the oven do you use parchment paper so it does not stick to the pan?

    • Diana September 1, 2015 at 7:59 pm

      Hi Tina- Yes I use the parchment paper so that the bars do not stick to the pan. Happy Cooking!
