  1. Loved it! I used a 9x9 pan and it was perfect for me. I got 16 bars out of it. Hubby and I ate them ALL that evening. They were so good and so much more healthy fast and filling than cookies. I added about 2 T of chia seeds. Totally going to do it - Read more ...
  2. Delicious! I added 1/3 cup coconut 1/4 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract. I also coated it with melted semi-sweet chocolate with some shredded coconut and a bit of butter mixed in. The recipe makes about 1/2 of what it says so either double it or use a smaller pan. Also give the flax - Read more ...
  3. I love this recipe for it's simplicity and adaptability! A quick no-cook healthy snack. The recipe is great as written but don't be shy about trying variations. I've found that it's easy to add mini chocolate chips or chopped dried fruit or nuts or whatever you like... by pressing those toppings into the mixture after - Read more ...
  4. These are fantastic. Can't stop eating them. Must store in the fridge though....or they're too soft.
  5. I added a tsp of vanilla and a tbsp cinnamon. I thought that it made the peanut butter mixture so so yummy. However, only 4 stars because I definitely didn't get 20 bars, and the pan size was way too big.
  6. Delicious. The peanut butter and honey are great with anything you may substitue. I left out the sesame and used crushed cashew and a little coconut. I don't like flax seeds they stick in your teeth.
  7. Quick and easy to make. I used the recommeded 11X7 pan and they came out a bit thin for my liking. Think I will use a smaller pan next time or double the recipe.
  8. This recipe is awesome! I followed the ingredients exactly as written however I put it into a slightly smaller pan which I'm glad I did. You don't really taste the peanut butter alot - as my PB hating daughter can attest. Will be adding this to my recipe book. Might try adding in some pumpkin - Read more ...
  9. Love these. I had no flax seed so I substituted with sliced Almonds. Just the perfect snack. Filling tasty and so good for you.
  10. Shared with co-workers(all women)all enjoyed. Husband not impressed! Husbands buddy and wife very impressed!-only downside-not for peanut allergy. I may try some without peanut butter.
