Just used this in The Sneaky Chef's crunchy chicken tenders, and it was soooo yummy! Even my husband enjoyed them. Had some left over, so I've tucked it away to use later this week, maybe in her peanut butter cookies. Good idea to get nutrition info., this way...that's the only thing missing from her book!
