what can i use instead of peanut butter?
For this recipe, we love the peanut butter. However, we get that some people don’t prefer it, or have an allergy to it.
You can easily replace the peanut butter in this recipe with:
- cashew butter
- almond butter
- sunflower seed butter
- coconut butter
- hazelnut butter
- pecan butter
- pistachio butter
We do recommend the taste and texture of peanut butter, but any of these alternatives would work as well.
make them bite size:
If you want, you can also make these into little bite sized balls. My kids like them as bars, but I have made them in the ball form as well, and they are just as delicious. I just place them in an air tight container and leave them in my fridge for a quick snack on the go.
They are even more delicious when they are cold.
are these more chewy or crunchy?
These bars are a little more on the chewy side. If you are looking to make them crunchy, you could bake them a little bit, at a low temperature for about 20 minutes, or until it has reached it’s desired crunchiness.
