So glad you like them. I mark down the date when my boys first make them, so it's a very sentimental recipe.

Wow, this is fabulous ;) Are you able to use natural peanut butter in this recipe?

Oh yes! Natural PB works great. Try it with crunchy too.

I use the same recipe, except I add a teaspoon of vanilla. I occasionally add a handful of chocolate chips.
