    I gave this recipe only 3 stars because when i made it with no changes the recipe comes out very mushy and does not stay together well. I was able to make it work by adding ground almonds and additional peanut butter. I would make this recipe again but only with the changes I made.

    The flavor is amazing, however it doesn't hold well, perhaps playing with the measurements can remedy that. Not giving up on this recipie yet.

    I added raisins and glad I did. It added a much needed sweetness, to plain without them. I will also double the peanut butter next time.

    Delicious! I didn’t have peanut butter so I substituted almond butter and loved it. Even my carnivorous husband liked these.

    Not a very peanut buttery taste at all. They also fell apart pretty badly, and didn't taste as good frozen. I won't be making this again.

    Great idea! Combination works beautifully. Added dried cranberries (for a peanut-butter-jelly taste). Sprinkled coconut sugar on pan after rolling to prevent sticking and add a little more sweetness

    Very easy to make and the cinnamon makes the flavor pop. One of the simpler recipes I have come across suitable for any cooking level
