    These turned out very well! I doubled the recipe and had to substitute for a few of the ingredients that our local grocer didn't have and they were great. The kids like them too. We will keep these stocked.  -  17 Feb 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very delicious!! And completely guilt-free with all those incredibly healthy ingredients! I omitted cardamom because I didn't have it (and increased cinnamon to 1/2 tsp). I did have to substitute peanut butter for almond butter because I didn't have any, so it was probably a bit sweeter than the original version. I used the full amount of spirulina and maca powder, and you could definitely taste them, but it was subtle.  -  13 May 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
