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!
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!
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

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?
