Technicially not paleo but for what you are creating, the rolled oats sound good and I suspect one of the better grains out there.

Could you try real maple syrup for the brown rice syrup?

Good luck on this!!

Got rid of the ticker cuz my scale decided to flatter me unduly. I haven't re-gained, just got a better, honest, scale.

Just because you steam it, doesn't mean you can't add herbs and spices. (A gripe at those insipid restaurant "healthy choice" menu selections.)

I believe they are not paleo. But we all do what we can in our own circumstances! Just try other ideas next time!

okay so i made the bars today. They are currently in the oven. This is what I used.

1/2 cup dried cherries
2.25 cup dried dates (20)
3/4 cup rolled oats (gluten free, but paleo?)
1 tbsp vanilla
1 tbsp brown rice syrup

170 degrees for 5 hours. So now I am waiting. Next time I will add new stuff like pumpkin seeds and maybe pumpkin butter. I will let you all know how it goes. Thanks for the ideas too! Oh yeah, and are rolled oats and brown rice syrup paleo? I could not find a definite answer. Thanks!

OOH good one with the pumpkin seeds! They can be found cheap in bulk too!! And flax is good as well. Would just have to add fruit and bind with like dates or honey!

What about pumpkin seeds? Flax seeds/meal? If you can find plain dried fruit (no oils or sweetners, just fruit), it tends to be on the crunchier side. Pomegranate seeds, if it's something fruity. That's all I can think of for now - I'll keep looking. Good luck.

I have had an allergy test at a young age after having an allergy attack to cashews. But I have always been allergic and it gets worse with every occurrence. I have an epi pen and the smell makes me nauseous. I am allergic to all nuts and coconut and sunflower seeds. The dried fruit sounds like a good idea. thanks!

I have had "nuts" made of fava beans and chickpeas, and dried peas that were crunchy like nuts. Not really Paleo foods though...Hmmm. That is a tough one!

I sure understand what you are going through. My hd has a nut allergy and therefor I do not use nuts in my house. Just the smell of them throughs him off and swells his lips.

Looking forward to any ideas people have.

Can you eat peanuts or macadamia or cashews? Wow, I can't think of what is crunchy that isn't a grain or a nut. I'm thinking maybe dehydrating some veggies 'til they are very dry and crunchy. I'm at a loss here; maybe someone else will come along and help. Good luck.

It may be that after you have been Paleo for a while your allergies will settle down. Have you ever had the Elisa test for food sensitivities?

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Hey guys,

I am trying to go Paleo but I have a nut allergy and this includes coconut (tree nut) and sunflower seeds. I would like to make a good crunchy protein bar but with my allergy I don't know how to make a good substitution for nuts. Any ideas?
