MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 19, 2014

"A little difficult to find all ingredients and a little pricey to make, but absolutely delicious and well worth it. Great after morning work outs. My kids love them too."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 11, 2012

"my family loves these, even my 18 month old. I tried them with Peanuts instead of almonds and my husband liked them better. I have also tried adding cinnamon,that was good too!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 21, 2012

"I used a marble rolling pin to push them into the pan and to condense them so they were not crumbly. We are addicted."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 27, 2012

"These are very tasty-I liked the crunch but the next time I make I am going to use less peanut butter and honey. I felt the ratio of PB was way too much."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 16, 2012

"My husband said we should always have these in the house. I wrapped them individually and froze them. We grab a few if we're headed out just in case it's pushing meal time. It will be cheaper to make them the next time since I will have most of the ingredients on hand."
