Everything was great except it was really hard to stick the almonds all around like the picture shows. So I ended up just mixing the almonds together with the rest and got almonds in every bite!

I really enjoyed these, thanks so much for sharing. I will be making more this weekend, I will be adding more chocolate chips so that I can have them in every bite.

Loved these!! It was a little messy but well worth it. Left out the cranberries as I didn't have them and don't really like them. Great morning pick me up snack!

I found it a little bit too sweet but great taste otherwise. I added about 1 1/2 cups of puffed quinoa and 1/4 cup of vegan protein powder. pressed it in a square pan to make little squares after refrigeration... less messy with the hands ;)

Soooo good! I used chocolate protein powder (instead of coco) and hemp seeds. Pecans work well to roll them in also, very tasty!

All I want to say is WOWWWWY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THANKS FOR SHARING this recipe, it is a HIT in my house!!!! I am planning on making these for my daughter's teachers for Teachers Appreciations Day next week. These are one of the best recipes yet! THANKS SO MUCH!!!!!!! ALSO, I wanted to add, my daughter is SEVERELY ALLERGIC to peanutbutter and nuts, so I used Sunbutter and roasted sunflower seeds in place of peanutbutter and slivered almonds. Turned out wonderfully! :)

Easy and yummy. I have picky eaters and these are a big hit with my two boys. These would be good for a birthday party snack

This recipe is great as-is! I messed with it a little to suit the ingredients I had on hand as well as my patience. The only things I changed were to replace the peanut butter with a mounded 1/3 cup of PB2 (powdered peanut butter), mixed in with the dry ingredients; added 4 tsp. palm oil to the warmed honey and coconut oil; and spread the mixture into a shallow pan to make bars instead of rolling into balls; hence my patience being saved. The remaining dried shredded coconut and roasted sunflower seeds (instead of sliced almonds) were added to the top and pressed into the mixture. Hard to resist, but I'd let it set in the refrigerator overnight. Will definitely make this again.
