    They look awesome. Loving your uber healthy alternatives to sweet treats!!! Can i use honey or coconut sugar instead of lacuna powder?

      Actually, you don’t even need lucuma. Good news! Maca, Cacao powder and cocoa powder work well too. But honey wouldn’t because it’s just too deliciously sticky. Coconut sugar sounds fun. Good luck! SJ

      Hi Bart. Sorry to hear that. It might be worth contacting Dr Joe Fitzgibbon in Galway. I know he specialises in food allergies and intolerances. He brought great relief to me. I have a large number of healthy snacks in my new cookbook which would be very useful. I also post recipes every week, so it might be worth signing up to my blog to receive these. I also cover healthy snacks in my weekly Sunday Independent column – so I think there’s lots for you! Just a matter of choosing really! You could order the cookbook into your local library, and photocopy the recipes you need. Wishing you the very best of luck. SJ

          Hello Bart,

          While I don’t do personal consultations, I can wholly recommend Heather Leeson from Positive Nutrition, 10 Orwell Road, Rathgar, Dublin 6. Hope this helps, and wishing you the best of tenacity and luck!

    These are absolutely yummy!! I had no lacuma so as a result they were a bit sticky but wow! I had never even eaten a date, spirulina or almond butter before today!!! Feels great eating something tasty that is good for you!

      They are pretty special alright. I will be giving away lucuma on my blog soon, so stay tuned for a bag!

    Just made these and so yummy..I’m a big spiraling fan and great to be able to use it.Am loving your cook book and trying lots. Question about the Wheat free bread…I’ve made it a few times and each time it comes out incredibly flat and maybe a bit dense….what am I doing wrong? Thanks so much. 

    • Reply Susan Jane April 15, 2014 at 8:54 pm

      Hi Dee. Sorry to hear about the bread. 3 other people have emailed about this, and 2 of them found their oven temperatures 10 degrees down (after purchasing an oven thermometer). If this is not the case, perhaps check the size of your tin (a magazine page for example? Anything smaller will result in a dense bread, undercooked and damp). Hope this helps. I do this recipe frequently in cookery classes across many kitchens and it seems to behave. I hope it will soon for you too! Good luck. Onwards ye of admirable tenacity!!

    Hi… just wondering if this recipe is suitable during pregnancy? Mixed info online so not sure. Thanks!

    • Reply Susan Jane August 23, 2014 at 3:49 pm

      Good question. I avoided Chlorella and spirulina when I was expecting, just as a precaution. Wheat grass powder might be a better suggestion? Beetroot powder, better still 😉 Hope this helps. Good luck!

      • Reply Adel August 26, 2014 at 2:59 pm

        It does help. Many thanks!
