  1. I absolutely LOVE these bars! I keep them in stock in the fridge all the time! Thank you so much! Do you have a new Freestyle points number for these? And if I used sunbutter in place of pb, would the freestyle points be less? Thank you so very much for your time and sharing of this recipe!

  2. I had the idea to just form these into balls. They’re great! I also added pumpkin seeds and cashews. Love it!5 stars

  3. made these into small bite sizes with dark salted chocolate drizzled over top and froze. Makes a better option for my husbands sweet tooth. So delicious and just as delicious as a peanut butter cup. Sometimes taking a craving and finding a way to make it more approachable is everything. Thank you for filling a constant desire with a much healthier alternative! Quality of ingredients is everything!5 stars
