I'm really sorry, but... spellcheck anyone? lol


I had to add some almond milk and  then I had to warm this pb/sugar mix up in the microwave and then I had to add water cause it was tooo dry.   I finally managed to be able to make bars out of it that taste pretty good.  My hubby even liked it.  I don't know if it was the peanut butter I used or what that gave me so many problems.  I had natural peanut butter and smart balance.  The natural peanut butter wasn't as easy to melt as the smart balance.


i totally did not use the molasses in this recipe since i could tell right away it would be too sweet and would also contribute to the whole "not sticking together" business
i also instead rolled them into little balls and baked them. So they came out like little peanut butter oat balls. Really cute


I've made these twice and both times they came out tasting really bad... I think it's the molasses?  :-\
I really just don't like the whole molasses taste...blegh.


I haven't made these yet, but they look delicious!

I only presume it's correct - i just did a google search for a recipe nutrition analysis and found a page that had one... but seems right to me... This is using regular molasses and commercial peanut butter.


*gets off soapbox*
all right... I just pulled these out of the oven and they are pretty good.  I made the recipe mostly like the instructions I just added hot water, a mashed banana and a little flax.

Thanks for the recipe!


nuts are not a ticket for a heart attack. Good grief people unless you are a registered dietitian please keep these comments to yourself. If you don't want to make this recipe then that is your choice. Everyone needs some fat in their diet and veg*ns are susceptible to vitamin E deficiencies because of their fat-phobia.
