    Can you substitute coco powder?

      Delicious Meets Healthy

      Yes, i think you can!

    Janet Shenoy

    I’m completely addicted to these! I make my own cashew butter and use that in place of the peanut butter. Either way it’s FANTASTIC!!! It also has ways less sugar (honey), so when I eat other things made with chocolate I find them too sweet.
