    Hi there. Found you on Frugal Days, Sustainable Ways. I’m curious about substitutions in this recipe. (Only because I dislike extra trips to the store and I’m interested in making these, um, now!) Does it have to be cashews and sunflower kernels or would any combination of nuts/seeds work? And how about the maple syrup? Does it serve mainly as a sweetener or does it highly affect flavor and texture?

      nicolebogacki1027 Howdy! Yes, any combination of nuts/seeds you like should work. I would think pecans would be super tasty in these balls! I used maple syrup because the recipe needs something sticky to make the mix stick together to roll into balls as well as it is a natural sweetener. You could also try coconut nectar, raw honey, etc. Hope that helps :)

    OMG, these are awesome! Get ready to gobble them up. I love the essence of wild orange combined with chocolate, dates, and nuts. A real winner. Thanks, Laura!

    I don’t like dates. Would another dried fruit work? Maybe apricots??

      Yes for sure! You could also try dried figs :)

    Would you have to add a flavored essential oil? Its the only ingredient I don’t have, and there is a blizzard blowing outside right now, so no trips to the store until tomorrow. I’d love to make them right now! :)

      You can use orange extract instead if you have that on hand :)
