Reviews for No-Bake Peanut Butter Treats
"I had trouble with the dough being too dry to stick together. It may be because I use local honey which is a thicker consistency than what you buy in the store. Anyway, I tried adding a splash of milk and then it became too gooey. Had to add more oats and milk powder to firm it up. I will probably not attempt these again."
"You will want to DOUBLE this recipe!! It is so great. I did change it a little-- used chocolate protein powder instead of powdered milk. Adding the addition of "chocolate-i-ness" made it taste like a true peanut butter cup! Instead of rolling into balls, the double recipe fits nicely into a 9x9 square pan. Great straight out of fridge or out of a lunch box. Yummy!"
"just made them; used granola instead of cracker crumbs (did not have)--- the dough was have eaten before I could roll them!!! very very good!"
"Made the recipe exactly as directed and my family loved them on our Canadian Thanksgiving table:)"
"I've made these before and rolled them in cocoa to dust them."
"we had something similar in my school, but they used corn flakes instead of oats or Rice Crispies. delish as I remember it."
"You can use almond extract instead of the vanilla and add some chopped almonds instead of the graham cracker crumbs. YUMMY!"
"If you want to change things up, add chopped miniature Reese's peanut butter cups--you get the best of both worlds! I would suggest rolling in chopped walnuts, too, if you want to skip the graham cracker crumbs."
"We made something simular to this when I was a girl in home ec. But instead of oats, we used rice krispies, and instead of milk, powdered sugar. I've been looking for a recipe for years. Can't wait to try this to see how simular it is to the flavors I remember in my mind! Thanks for sharing!"
"Everyone really liked this recipe and I agree about adding chocolate. Perhaps a little cocoa powder in the mix would be good. Next time!"
"I've made this recipe 2x so far...chocolate would make it even better, but that would sort of defeat the point. And really, they are delicious just as they are!"
"Fabulous! I dipped them in chocolate to make them even more special!"
"I have been making this treat for my grand children for a long time but without the cracker crumbs. They love it."
"As a fairly new diabetic, I was very happy to find something that fit in my diet plan. It's nice to be able to have a special treat every now and then."
"Doubled the recipe right away and made some changes to add fiber and protein. Used whey powder instead of dry milk, and went halvsies with oatmeal and steel cut oats. They were delicious! I loved the crunch and they are a quick, yummy snack!"
"I cut down on the honey and they were wonderful - I used only half of honey, the only thing is they were a little dry. But great and something quick to make for dinner."
"I added fiber one ceral instead of graham cracker crumbs. It was delicious."
"The first time I tried this (following the recipe to a 'T') it was dry and not very tasty. Calls for way too much powdered milk and oats. I tried it again cutting those ingredients in half and adding a bit more peanut butter and it turned out really good. Also added a chocolate chip and PB drizzle over top, helped immensely."
"It's an easy recipe, but portions so small for 70 Cal.A diabetic would want at least 3 or more. Tastes really sweet."
"Very easy and quick treat to make. Fun for kids to help prepare. A delicous no-bake recipe I will make again."
"Quick and easy. Doubled it right away. A tasty snack!"
"I love peanut butter but this recipe was just OK. They tasted like something was missing so I want to try adding mini choc chip."
"My kids love these. I sometimes add flax to them, too.-AudreyGold River, CA"
"My daughter has made these twice and loves the fact that she does not need my help! Thanks for the great recipe! :)"
"super easy to make~my 11yr old da did them all by herself. Very Yummy!"
"Tasty and made with stuff that I already had in my kitchen. I threw some almonds in it as my peanut butter was the creamy type. Also added some dried cranberries."
"made these for a party at work yesterday - they were a huge hit! I smooshed a chocolate chip on top of each one and it was great! I'm making these again today - I'm going to add a little more peanut butter and a pinch of salt. so easy and yummy!"
"I remember eating these as a child and I love them."
"These are also great when substituting the dry milk for carob powder and adding chopped walnuts and raisins. I used to make these for my kids when they were little. Now they're 29 and 30!"
"Very good, and easy to make. I left out the graham cracker crumbs and used chia seeds. A very tasty treat."
"DELICIOUS and so easy! I didn't have graham crackers so instead I increased the oats to 1/2 c. Came out great the first time! I love no bake recipes with oats and peanut butter. Will definitely make this again."
"Haven't tried the recipe yet, but am so excited to try it, since the submitter is from my little home town of Wavely, NE. GO VIKINGS!"
"No made them but i think i would dip them in chocolate bark. Use white or dark or even melt peanut butter chips and dip them."
"Would probably be good if you add coco powder."
"I make this all the time but without the graham crackers and vanilla my kids love them"
"yummy, my sister said to maybe use more oatmeal and grahm cracker crumbs"
