  1. I loved the flavor of this, but it is really crumbly and not easy to pick up as a snack. Did I do something wrong or this the way it was supposed to turn out?

    1. Hello, sorry for the late reply. But sometimes, just a bit more coconut oil, maple syrup or honey, and less blending in the food processor, and if you have some ground up flaxseed meal (that congeals it a bit too and adds some more healthy fat). Let me know how that works 🙂
