  1. I’ve got quite a list of intolerances so I made these with So Delicious Chocolate Coconut milk, almond butter, and almond extract (in place of vanilla). They turned out great!

    I’m not used to alot of white sugar now so I might try again with coconut or maple sugar as I do like how sweet they are! I may also use a cup or half a cup of rolled oats as my quick oats were really broken down after mixing.

  2. I subbed shortening for coconut oil, old fashioned oats for quick, sunbutter/pumpkin butter blend for peanut butter. Then I topped with citron flake salt.

    • Hi Tara, this recipe is a riff on traditional no bakes – a recipe that is very sweet! Many like them this way. You can reduce the sugar by up to half though, without problems, if preferred. I’ve made them that way myself.
