Alternatives

Another perk of this recipe: you can replace everything to another ingredient! I mean literally everything:

  • If you don’t like walnuts, you can use any other nut or seed instead, for example almonds are a great substitute.
  • I used erythritol as a sweetener, but you can use any sweetener of your choice as well.
  • If you aren’t vegan, you can replace the flaxseed eggs with real eggs.
  • Not a fan of baking powder? Use baking soda with a teaspoon of lemon juice instead.
  • You can add other spices instead of cinnamon, like nutmeg, cocoa powder, etc.

See? You can really play with this walnut bites recipe, it’s a bit like the vegan thin bread seed crackers. 😉

How many carbohydrates does a walnut bite have?

For those who count their daily intake of carbohydrates like me, there are some good news: this recipe is really low carb. According to my calculations the whole recipe has only 28 grams CH and since I always make approximately 20 walnut balls, this means that a single walnut bite has only 1,4 grams CH in it.
