    i tweaked the recipe slightly, i cut out the sugar, i used homemade peanut butter, added a tsp of vanilla, 1/2 cup of oats, an egg and 1 banana, they are delicious and very healthy as there is no added sugar...  -  13 Oct 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Ladies and gentlemen get your cold glasses of milk ready! Super easy and super delicious. This whips up-even by hand- in no time. I even used 3/4 cup of sugar and they were awesome. I weighed each cookie before baking (25 grams each) and it yielded 18 cookies (using 3/4 cup of sugar). Thank you for this recipe.  -  02 Aug 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    They're pretty good as is but if you want to take it to the next level, melt some chocalate (i used chocolate almond bark), dip them and set in fridge to chill until chocolate hardens. It taste exactly like a reese's peanut butter cup. Made these for my fiancee and he absolutely loved them. I don't even like peanut butter and i couldn't stop eating them.  -  20 Aug 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
