  1. I left out the walnuts and added sunflower seeds. We like them.
  2. Very difficult to make. I couldn't get them to ball up
  3. simple and delicious. Could add a lot of things to this could coat in any nut chips etc. Added a splash of vanilla and used pecans but otherwise made as directed.
  4. These are a nice option for an after run snack.
