    Strawberry or Cranberry would be good. That kitchen item for measuring out the peanut butter is neat. Hope I can one. Keep up with the awesome recipies!!!

    Hi,

    Thanks for this great recipe.

    I was wondering if you can freeze them?

    How long can you keep them? Do you have to keep them in the fridge or at room temperature in a container?

    p.s. One with toffee or cookies and cream would be great!

    Thanks in advance,

    Rafael

    Hey Derek, been enjoying your recipes for over a year now, keep it up! Any substitute for the peanut butter in this recipe?

    • Derek Howes on August 13, 2015 at 12:00 am

      Hi Jordan! You could definitely use another nut butter (cashew, almond, soy nut butter, etc)!

    Do you think I can use coconut milk in it?
    Gonna try it today so hopefully it will work out well =)
    Love all the recipes that you have here…I was missing baking when I start eating clean. Now, I cannot stop =D and there are still soooo many recipes to try =D

    • Derek Howes on September 20, 2015 at 12:00 am

      Yes, of course! Thank you by the way 🙂

    Heiii Derek…..your all recipes is just awesome…..but in this recipe where we use the rice syrup or honey??

    • Derek Howes on September 24, 2015 at 12:00 am

      Hi harsh! Thank you. You use it in the recipe – is that what you’re asking?

  7. Kevin on April 11, 2016 at 12:00 am

    It crumbled on me the first time around. On my second attempt, I added about 1/2 – 3/4 cup of water during the mixing process and it seemed to keep its constitution a lot better. Great recipe!

    Can I mix this with a mixer using dough hooks?
