    • Hi, rustygate. If you use the personal version of the Menu Planner application (the right-most option here: http://www.trimdownclub.com/menu-planner), you will see some of our recipes in the “Recipes” subcategory of each major food group. For newer recipes that have not yet been added into the system, you can use them to substitute for the main ingredient in your meal. You can also match up the exchanges visible at the end of each recipe and when you click on “Exchange Mode” in the toolbar above your menu. The match doesn’t have to be perfect.

  1. Hi, marguarita. In this particular recipe, you can use the same amount of sugar. If you use whole sugar, even better. Just note that it will add about 1/3 of a carb exchange to each bar. By the way, what is the reason for your physical intolerance to sweeteners?

  2. Do we care about the calories? It is hard after all these years not to necessarily worry about the calorie content and only consider the health value. I need to go shopping to get all of the ingredients, but I think I will attempt to make these.

  3. Hi, Breitbrooke. We definitely don’t want anyone to use processed or quick oats. This recipe was intended for users to add in whole steel-cut oats. Our guidance regarding oats is in the main Program Guide (see “My Downloads” above). No worries.

  4. Yummy! A little drier than expected but very tasty. I added a teaspoon of chia seeds and used half sultanas and half dried apricot as fruit. Because that’s what I had I used rice flour not whole wheat.

  5. I havn’t tried any of the recipes yet, as I have just joined. I noticed that there is no nutritional values at the end of the recipes. I am diabetic and I need to know carbs and protein levels. Now that I have paid for all the apps. I am disappointed to discover this.

  6. Hi, Wendy. Whole grains are encouraged. When we wrote about “whole wheat” we were referring to the misleading labeling of many breads, which include a little bit of whole wheat flour, but give the impression that they are healthy. For that reason, we encourage you to seek 100% whole grain (including wheat) products.

  7. Hi, CatherineCox. Eggland’s Best are great for omega-3s, definitely; however, if your local homegrown eggs are grass-fed, that’s great, too!. Monk fruit sweetener is one of the newer natural no-carb sweeteners, used in the same proportions as Stevia (the most common brand names are Nectresse and Monk Fruit in the Raw).
    To all: We prefer not to encourage agave or honey because they are high in fructose, which can work against your efforts here. If you do not like Stevia and monk fruit is exorbitant, try coconut sugar or xylitol, which taste like sugar and are used in similar proportions – for this recipe, you would add 1 cup, but do note that coconut sugar will add 15 grams (1 exchange) of carbs to each bar.

  8. I love taking granola bars to munch on mid morning or late afternoon. What is monkfruit sweetner? Can I use agave or honey? Do you recomend Eggland’s Best eggs? I usually opt for local home grown. Thank you for the low fat, low sugar treat.
