I thought this was delicious. I didn't have all of the nuts on hand that the recipe called for but it still worked out just fine. The shortbread crust was addicting.
I am on Keto, so I made w almond flour, and made w Sukrin honey replacement syrup, and Thrived switch sugar alt. I toasted raw nuts, and all I can say is THANK U!!!!! Sweet, a lol salty, and plain delicious!! I will be making this as my treat/fat bomb (from the nuts and coconut cream). It's the trail mix bars I've been missing!!! Next time, a drizzle of unsweetened dark chocolate on the top! I can adjust to nuts I have, flavors I want.....thank you. Only problem, wanna eat the whole [email protected]
I have made this recipe many times and have never been disappointed. I always get at least one person who wants the recipe. The only thing I changed was the cup of almonds I replaced with a cup of pecans. I did find that toasting the pecans prior to using them in the recipe resulted in over baked nuts. I have substituted for a gluten free crust and, although not quite as tasty, was still very good. You can use any combination of 4 cups of nuts which makes this recipe very Versatile. I never have a problem cutting the bars when I use a chefs knife. I do wonder what the cream is for in the recipe so please let me know if you have an idea.

I love these bars! I use a can of deluxe mixed nuts (no peanuts) and they turn out great. Everybody loves them.
Easy and quick to make. A little expensive but well worth it. I chopped the almonds and pistachios, as well as the hazelnuts but left the cashews whole. I think the chopped nuts made the bars easier to cut. This is a "keeper" recipe.
Exchanged the hazelnuts for pecans. These bars are fantastic! The sweet and salty combination is perfect. We couldn't stop eating them.
Very yummy! Would definitely make again!
I loved these bars! My base was a little dry but I don't think I cut the butter in small enough or mixed as well as I should have. I used a macadamia nut, almond, and cashew mix then added shelled pistachios. I didn't have the whipping cream on hand so used evaporated milk and it turned out fine. The sweet and salty combination was a winner and I will surely make these again!
So nummy! My husband said, "Those are addicting!" I use mixed nuts & pistachios.
