This is one of my newly adopted recipes. I tossed this together tonight while fixing dinner. Very quick and easy dessert. I used regular apple butter, but no added sugar apple butter could be used as well.

This was good. I used pumpkin butter because that's what I had. I'm looking forward to trying it with apple butter! I bet that is even better. I'm thinking apple butter and maybe a very thin layer of apples too. Thanks for sharing. I'll definately make this again.

Loved this recipe! I used pumpkin butter instead, swapped out granola for oats, and Splenda for sugar and used double the cinnamon and filled it up with some caramel drizzle! Oh this recipe turned out great! I made these for my sister's neighbor's cousin's potluck and they were a big hit! Everyone LOVED them and they disappeared faster than we could put them out! Everyone raved about them! What a great fall comfort food!
