We tried these for Pick a Chef '08. We used reg. peanut butter and thought these were a wonderful after school snack. Otherwise, we made them exactly as written. Thanks for sharing.

I found these to be a little blah, and a little dry especially the next day. The guys at Bible study liked them when they were fresh out of the oven. They might be better made with un-natural peanut butter.
