Notes

WHAT COULD I USE IN PLACE OF THE PEANUT BUTTER AND PEANUTS?
I am a huge peanut butter fan. I am the person that goes at it with a spoon.
However, I have recently found a love for almond butter. It is so delicious, and has the best texture – thick and creamy, with an amazing almond flavor.
If you don’t like peanuts, you could also switch out the peanuts for almonds as well.
