    YES! The afternoon slump is the worst, and it can be so hard to be motivated when self employed. I’m like, I COULD test a recipe or I could sit around, eat chocolate and watch “The Millionaire Matchmaker.”
    I can’t confirm that the Millionaire Matchmaker part will change..but I could DEFINITELY switch the chocolate for these bites! Perfect! Pinned 🙂

    The freezer tip is very useful especially on a hiking trip! I think the sound is a bit lower during the “instructions” portion of the video compared to the intro portion. Regardless these are still a good sweets alternative! 🙂

      Thanks for the feedback! iMovie, the editing software I use, recently changed and I’m still figuring things out unfortunately. I’m glad you found the freezer tip useful – these would be perfect for hiking.

    I just made these, and they’re delicious! I added some quinoa and my chocolate whey protein powder, too. I think the quinoa adds really cool texture. Thanks for the idea!

    These sound awesome! I tried to pin but it didn’t work. Don’t I just click on the Pin it icon? I used to have a recipe for granola bars like this one. The kids loved them.

      Thanks! The pin-it button should be working just fine! There’s also one that appears when you hover over the images. If you’re using the pin-it button in your browser then it might be something on your computer’s side or Pinterest’s side.

    Okay. What about those of us who can’t have peanut butter. Will cashew or almond or macadamia nut butters work equally well? I’ve wanted to try these, but hesitate to use an expensive (where we live anyway!) jar of cashew or almond butter and have a mess rather than a snack. I guess I could just put everything back in a jar and eat it with a spoon! Thanks!

      Any other nut butter should work just fine! You may need to adjust the ratio of nut butter to dry ingredients as some other butters are more oily than peanut butter. Good luck!

    Can agave be used in place of the honey/syrup? Same amount?

    I’m wondering if Steel Cut Oats would work as well as regular Oats? I’m super excited to try this recipe!
