    I've been eating Walgreens Cashew Crunch Squares. They are like crack.

    Primal Fuel
    Good & Delish*Cashew Crunch | Walgreens


    holy shit so good. Now How do I make these at home. Could maple syrup work in place of the rice syrup? and would i just like mix the cashews or other nuts with the syrup and bake it for a bit? would that hold them together?

    Maybe maple syrup in place of both the sugar and the rice syrup?

    Planned on leaving out he sugar. But a little sugar doesnt bother me. I just didnt know if maple syrup had the same adhesive properties as rice syrup.

    Or how about some dried fruit instead of both of the sugars? You would basically be making your own Larabars.

    Id rather just do nuts and something that binds them together to keep the carbs low as i get enough carbs from other sources.

    I haven't had the cashew squares myself, so I don't really know how they taste/how to recreate the taste. But I'm wondering if some really dark chocolate, melted down, with cashews mixed in would recreate a similar product? I know the original product doesn't have chocolate. But that is the only thing that I can think of that would hold the cashews together. Of course fruit would work too. Like a previous poster said, figs/dates would work well in holding the cashews together.

    The squares themselves don't seem to be that "low carb" with all the sugar/syrup in there. So if you take out the syrup/sugar and replace it with dates or maple syrup, then it'll still be higher in carbs.

    It's not the heat, it's the stupidity.

    hahaha just what I was thinking. Cashews are sweet all on their own.

    Cashews + bacon fat. Once at room temp, it's a Primal Bar!
    Cashews + coconut oil. See above.
    Cashews + mashed avocado + agave syrup (it's natural). Chill to solidify avocado.

    Yaknow, I was joking, but that third one minus the agave syrup (which you might as well suck cane) kinda sorta sounds good.
