These were delishious and very easy to make! I noticed they dried out faster than I could sheet them so I just added a tiny bit of milk and stired to make them fresh again. Worked great. Super recipe, thanks for sharing!

I used old fashioned oats instead of quick. My first batch crumbled miserably. So, I dropped the oats to 2 cups and they turned out wonderfully. I like this recipes ratio of butter to peanut butter. The taste is marvelous. Thank you.

These were very good, but I made some healthy changes... I used a little less than a cup of sugar (and they were still SUPER sweet, so I can't imagine double that amount). I used almond milk and a mix of almond and peanut butter. I used coconut oil instead of butter and a little less oats than called for. Also a pinch I cinnamon really kicked it up a notch.
