💭 Tips for making Chocolate Beet Dandelion Bars:
- Learn more about health benefits + foraging for and preparing dandelions HERE.
- Uncomfortable with foraging for dandelions? You can omit or simply dump the contents of one dandelion root tea bag instead.
- Want even more dandelion power? Swap out the maple syrup for this dandelion honey instead!
- On a sugar-free diet? Replace the maple syrup with this sugar-free sweetener instead.
- On a nut-free diet? Replace the walnuts with more seeds.
- If you do not like or have access to golden raisins, you can replace them with any dried fruit of your choice.
- If you want even more of the medicinal benefits of dandelion, swap the coconut milk out for dandelion tea instead.
- Due to the unique nature of coconut flour, I do not recommend replacing it with anything else.
- These bars taste great straight out of the freezer! Store in airtight containers in the freezer for up to one month.
