      Very good. I made a lot of changes because I was trying to lighten these up. I used brummel and brown spread instead of butter, reduced the sugars to 1/3 cup each, reduced the pecans to 2/3 cup, used the egg whites instead of the yolks, and used half ap and half whole wheat pastry flour. Also I added 1 tsp baking powder since I lost the leavening of the egg yolks. Made the bars to be 175 cal and 7 grams fat, 4 grams protein. I will make them again and stir in some protein powder to up the protein. If it works out, no more expensive store bought protein bars for me because these are great!! I'm sure the original is even better and truly decadent, but I'm on P90X:)

      These are awesome! I love finding a new use for apple butter besides on a sandwich. I didn't and wouldn't change a thing. Thanks for the recipe!
