  • THANK YOU SO MUCH for making these videos I have been dying to make these b/c I refuse to pay $12 at lush, that’s how much it costs here in FL.

  • Amazing recipe thank you sooo much for being such creative and having a great taste!!!! i have one question: can i replace brown rice syrup with corn syrup,agave syrup or maple syrup??? thank you so much:)

  • i make the lush wiccy muscle bar but didnt know if lush till around 5mths ago, the only difference between mine & lush’s is mine has massage bumps.. and i now crush my adzuki beans to extend them throughout my soaps, massage bars, massaga candles etc

  • If you want to upgrade the chocolate flavor then put a little bit of sea salt on top. It won’t be salty but the chocolate will be really intense

  • Why does someone even bother to push dislike button??? What was so bad about this video?!?! That video was awesome. I love kind bars so that is a great way for me to save money.:) thank you so much for the recipe, will definitely try it out!!!

  • Hi Kristen!  So I just attempted this recipe & I’m afraid the pan I’m using is much too large as the nut mixture didn’t cover as well as your video?  Was it a half sheet?  Thank you in advance for your response!:-)

  • what a creative idea:) If you have a moment, would love if you could do another diy recipe from my fav homemade cosmetics book



  • Want to def try this because my daughter loves the cashew kind bars and these are perfect for her college… what do you think the estimated cost on these are (each bar) since the nuts are costly… I can get 18 bars from Costco for $17.99 here in the Philadelphia suburbs… so I would definitely consider making them if these were much cheaper

  • I love this. I think I make another “light” cersion of the “sirop” and cut the nuts a bit smaller before use. Bit easier to mix too. ��

  • Not trying to be a Debbie Downer or anything but like another person mentioned, it’s probably cheaper to go to Costco to buy these. After doing the math I estimated around $25-$35 to make these if you have to buy most if not all of the ingredients.

  • Thank you for this amazing healthy energy bar recipe, pretty straightforward and easy to follow. I can’t wait to try this once I get hold of an oven.

  • I tried this recipe and it was AWESOME! they tasted delicious �� my family and me finished them! Instead of adding the chocolate on top of the bars, I added melted chocolate in the granola before I baked it. My mom was a big fan and so was I. Thank you so much for this recipe Gemma! I am making this again today for my dad, he is very health particular and this recipe is perfect! I even used roasted oats since they have more flavour. Can’t thank u enough for this recipe. A long while back I commented on your best ever brownie recipe, and I got a reply from u! Other youtubers never reply back. They never reply to there fans and that’s sad. U r awesome! Thanks a ton.

  • I love the Rx bars. I, too, noticed the simple recipe and came to YT in hopes that someone had one to share. TYSM for posting this. I can’t wait to make them.

  • I thought about you when I was watching Infinite Waters (Diving Deep) he does no editing to his videos… so what you see is what you get! LOL Thank you for sharing this video. I have been looking for a recipe like this. I cannot wait to make them this weekend!

  • Hi, I love this! Is there a way to have sugar free chocolate on top (choc chips without sugar)? My son is on the GAPS diet. We will also use all honey and sub cereal.

  • Delusional. Not even healthy look at all the sugar added. Some nuts and oat meal wow. Mixing healthy with unhealthy most people dont need all that

  • It would be great if you could speak about brown rice syrup, agave nectar, honey, maple syrup and turbinado/raw sugar. As always, a great recipe:))

  • I expect you hear this a lot but I love your accent ������. Will try these bars! It would be more nutritious than snacking on junk food which I have a habit of!

  • Hi there.
    I’m looking forward to trying this recipe.
    I was recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, and was wondering if you had any recipes or ideas for diabetic crunchie bars?
    There are a couple of recipes I found online, haven’t found any that’s to my taste though.
    I don’t like the taste of Xylotol at all.

  • Thank you for this excellent recipe! I substituted 1/4 cup barley malt syrup since I didn’t have brown rice syrup on hand. Added dried tart cherries and oh, my, are these perfect!

  • Why do people think coconut oil is healthy? Only thing it is, is easily digestible because of short chain fatty acids in it. Great recipe though

  • I just finished up to the cooling step.
    When I lifted the parchment paper I could tell that the contents were cracking apart in places, so I could not actually cut them. What might I have done wrong? Even breaking in very uneven pieces, taste pretty darn excellent! However I would like them to look nice and be able to do the chocolate thing. Again, what might I have done wrong. Is it possible that I did not let the melted butter mixture get hot enough even though everything was Incorporated, my convection oven caused a problem because it was on convection bake? Anyway, still taste pretty darn excellent! Thank you if you are able to reply.

  • Impulse eater! me too! Love to eat chewy foods, takes longer to eat. this recipe meets the bill. Love all your recipes and vids. Thanks for giving permission to eat dark chocolate!�� Little George is an extra plus, he seems to be very content, but of course see him only limited time on camera. Bless your family, Be WISE Stay SAFE.

  • Hi Gemma!
    This is the best granola I’ve ever had! My family of four wiped down a tray(I halved the recipe) before it could cool and I could cut it. Making this forever!
    Thanks a ton!

  • These look amazing!
    I made them and they were absolutely delicious. Thiugh I did face a problem and some of them broke quite easily. Please tell me what should I change in the recipe or in the procedure so that they don’t break. ��

  • 6 tablespoons (3oz/85g) butter, melted
    1/3 cup (5oz/142g) honey
    2 tablespoons maple syrup
    2 tablespoons brown sugar
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    3 cups (9oz/255g) rolled oats
    1/4 teaspoon salt

  • Thank you for sharing your recipe. Great easy to understand video. I will try to make those tomorrow (without the peanuts). Never tried the original KIND bars as I find them too pricey, so this is great!

  • Trust me jama you are just like a godmother to our family. I made this today and it turned out amazing I did all the nuts. My sister is 5 year old and she hates everything which is healthy. When she ate this, she loved it and she asked for more. My mum literally cried after seeing that my sister finally loved something healthy. Love ya❤️❤️

  • This particular “loso shocking plan” paleo program (Google it) was such an easy method for me to shed 14 lbs in the short 14 days I have been following it. I spent about an hour searching through this program and wrote down all the great recipes I wish to try, which came to a total of Two full pages.

  • I’ve tried this recipe… It turned out great and delicious.. Thank you so much Gemma.. �� �� ��. Your recipes are mind blowing…

  • Love this. Excited to try making my own bars. Probably will need lots of practice though, my baking doesn’t usually come out that good

  • Made these today, minus the pumpkin spice. The mixture came out a little runnier than yours when dishing out, and i made mine a little thicker so they are more like a dense brownie rather than a “bar.” But none the less, EXCELLENT flavor. I figured the cost of goods to be about $0.50 per bar. Thanks so much!

  • I just found your channel and you are so talented. I wish that you would list the items you use. I noticed you don’t list them on any of the videos I’ve watched so far. You’re very talented.

  • This is so cute and simple! I wanted to make about 40 of these as party favors. Do you recommend a good way of storing them? Is keeping them in the fridge okay? Thanks xoxo

  • I’m curious what all the ingredients and special thermometer cost? Nuts and honey are very expensive. It might be cheaper to just buy Kind Bars.

  • You’re one of the few Youtubers that I’m posting on all my social media. You are just amazing!:DD I love love love the bathbomb videos. I had a quick question. I forgot what it’s called.. but can you add that substance that causes a bunch of bubbles SLSA or something? Anytime I go into the bath, I’m a bubble ADDICT xD <3
    Hope to hear from you soon, and much love and support here!! Keep posting:3 <33

  • hi there! thanks for the tutorial! I made these today and they are very soft! they melt when you touch them. they really do need some wax added. I will be playing around with your base recipe a bit. it may turn out to be a great massage butter!

  • Where did you get the brown rice syrup? It’s the first time I hear about it. Also is there an substitute for it? Because I’m afraid I won’t find it

  • Just made these, left in the fridge for 1 hour and still very soft. They practically melt when you pick them up, also very greasy when I rubbed on my arm….is it supposed to be like this?

  • Hi I tried this its look nice but when i apply it on my body its look so greasy and its look like i applied oil so what is my mistake suggestions plz

  • Seems like quite a lot of almonds, I know this is an older video. Any chance you made an updated one? Might you have a suggestion for a substitute for maybe 1/2 that quantity of almonds? Would you think that walnuts would work out in this recipe?

  • Delicious! Just came across video I’m glad I did. Always trying to find new snacks or healthy meals to experiment. This was perfect!

  • Can this be made with just the coconut oil and harden it or do I need some type of butter..? I have no idea where to purchase butter like that

  • Thanks so much for sharing this. I need to pick up one of those thermometers and then I think I will make this soon. I have a long vacation coming up so it will have to wait until afterward, but I think I’m going to really enjoy these! 

  • Dani has all the tools how long in the pot do we need to leave it there before we shut the fire off if we don’t have a candy thermometer

  • It would have been million times better if the measurments were given. Nobody has time for checking the same recipe at two places.

  • Hi! Was wondering how long this bar’s shelf life is?? I’m concerned regarding the tapioca making the bar rancid in weeks. Please reply back Thank you!!!

  • These look amazing Dani, they look perfect! I tried to make a similar a few months ago but I messed up the sugar temperature and they were a little too sticky. Will definitely try these!

  • I’m in Ghana and cant find rolled oats anywhere to buy mostly because of the lockdown. Can I use instant oats? Or can I use biscuits instead?

  • For doing the packaging you can buy some zipper bags and that works really well and also if you don’t finish you can put it on the bag another time��
    ps: just discovered your channel and it’s ����

  • Awesome I just bought some tax bars to try and lived the simplicity and how organic the ingredients were compared to other cereal bars and thought of making my own

  • Looks absolutely amazing!!! I have a slightly annoying question though…Would you happen to know how many calories would be in 1 homemade bar?

  • Gemma, You made it sound like Irish butter is a bad fat and that coconut oil/fat is better. Last I heard, Irish and European butter comes from cows that feed on grass, making their milk and milk products healthy in comparison to American feed lot cattle milk products. Cocount oil can be worse for you than grass fed butter if it is extracted using heat, or even worse, solvents to extract it. The fat isn’t what’s bad for you, in fact, it is better for you than grains, starches, and sugar. The saturation of the fat isn’t what kills, its the quality of the fat, whether it be a polyunsaturated or monounsaturated or plain ol’ saturated fat. If it isn’t good quality, it creates lesions in the arterial walls of the organism consuming them. I can’t wait to try this recipe concept here shortly to share with my clients.

  • This is probably a stupid question but I’ve read that the smoke point for butter is 150 degrees celsius. So wouldn’t baking at 180 degrees celsius cause the butter to burn? Or is it because since it is combined with other ingredients it does not reach that temperature?

  • I’m surprised living in California you had trouble finding brown rice syrup. I live no where in the country in Ohio and can find it in at least three stores. Any way love your volgs

  • I went to 3 different grocery stores and no one had those tapioca pearls:(
    I live in Canada as well, which store were you able to get yours?

  • Hi Gemma, I tried making this but I used 6 tablespoons of coconut oil instead and I omitted the brown sugar. However, my granolas didn’t turn out quite as stick. Was wondering if you could advise me on what might have gone wrong?

  • Besides the nuts, I only have honey, salt and coconut oil. Will this still stick together?

    Can I also use other kinds of nuts?

    I really like your channel, keep up the good work!

    Greetings from Luxembourg!

  • I wonder how The nut bars would taste if you added some oats to it, I’m definitely going to make those bars one day ����������������

  • Instead of rice syrup I’m going to use coconut sugar �� oh and put thin rice paper on the bottom of the pan and on the top of the already shaped bars and I’m going to swap the rice crisps out for coconut flakes �� ( wish me luck)

  • definitely trying them, just ordered the thermometer. I am big fan of kind bar specially Dark chocolate and sea salt. Thank you Dani.

  • Ow, much cheaper than buying the ready bars, and watching you do it seems easy, in fact should be easy but it would be difficult to set the temperature without this thermometer own kitchen? I was willing to try and do too.

  • All u did was make candied nuts in bar form. Why go thru all this trouble then? Why not just buy candied nuts for the bulk bin instead? And a small handful of chocolate chips to the candied nuts in a small bowl. Voila, same thing without all the fuss, wrapping, and clean up.

  • Hey ClaCali!i just tried your recipe and i got 4-5 bars,i don’t understand how you get just 2 from that recipe! 1 cup of cocoa butter equals 218 gr of cocoa butter and that’s a lot!Maybe you should write the recipe in the description cause it’s not really clear!

  • at 6:05 when you see the chocolate is liquid/melted that is how my heart felt when I first saw you. I know your married for I noticed your wedding Ring but I hope you both have a happy marriage.

  • Hey Kristen,
    Did you pop your millet or did you already buy it puffed? I’m having a hard time finding puffed millet (not even in whole foods) and I can’t really find a recipe for how to pop millet (and I tried to pop it but no luck!).. Amazon sales it but it’s like extremely expensive.. I mean, it’s just millet!..
    Thank you for this recipe. I can’t wait to make it, just trying to figure out this millet thing!

  • Just made these! Used the nuts we had on hand and I also try to stay away from peanuts so I used cashews, pecans and almonds. They taste FANTASTIC a little too soft/chewy maybe so next time I’ll let it cook a little longer. My candy thermometer might be a little off.  Thanks for sharing this! Already looking forward to making another batch.

  • Wow, so glad I found your channel!, nice easy step by step baking, I really like that you give the nutrient information of the ingredients brilliant. Thank you.

  • Thank you for making this video. I m the same as you I read the ingredients and thought I can make too, I just couldnt mentally figure out how to include the egg whites.

  • I tried this. It turned out lovely. But after making I put them in an air tight container. After the third day it got soft and limp and started breaking. Why like that? Something I am sure I did wrong

  • This is great!!  How long do they last before going bad?  When you put it on the pan, how thick do you spread it.  It looked like about an inch in the video.  Thanks!

  • Hi this is so awesome, I used to eat Kind Bars but I cannot have them anymore since I started Keto. Do you have a recipe of Kind Bar with less sugar content… we are not allowed honey:-( thank you

  • Amazing and very creative! Kind Bars are my go to!! As you may know Ive got Celiac Disease. This was fantastic! Thank you for sharing!

  • I am going to substitue the brown rice syrup for honey, but am curious to know if using some peanut butter in place of honey for some extra flavour would work well. What do you think?

  • I’d love to see recipes for other RX bar flavors! Another packaging idea is to order glassine bags or paper candy/snack bags from etsy, and use a cute sticker or washi tape to seal the bag!

  • Looks wonderful! Thanks I had a hard time knowing where to get some of the materials but i ended up at bulkapothecary.com/categories/massage-oil-lotion.html if anyone needed help with that.

  • I have some tapioca pearls and all the mentioned ingredients but am
    concerned about mold. It sure beats having to hunt down adzuki beans!

  • Those look delicious! That cheap packaging idea is great too! I wouldn’t be able to think of an alternative. I usually just put things in Ziploc bags.
