  • Remington says:

    Have you used ground coffee and agave in this before? We made some similar to this recipe before but I can’t find it anywhere. Thanks for your help.

      I recall a recipe with coffee grounds and rolled in hemp hearts and am not finding it also. Guess I’ll wing it

  • Colin says:

    How much peanut butter powder do you use?

    • Colin says:

      Just to follow up. I tried 1/3 cup PB powder, and that did okay… but I had to add a lot more peanut butter! I probably added 2-3 more tablespoons of PB. I would also recommend that you blend the oats and coconut in a food processor to blend it up a bit finer than it is to start.

    Made mine as directed but ended up with needing more peanut butter. I also added Dark Chocolate Chips and substituted regular coconut for toasted coconut. My wife loves them as well. Thanks for sharing your recipes!!!!
