    1. Carrie, the texture should still be okay without the nuts. I’d recommend adding some sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds to include extra protein.

    1. Thanks, Deanna. My husband describes them as “somewhere between crunchy and soft.” They aren’t super dry like granola cereal, but they’re not chewy or moist either. Somewhere in the middle!
