Fabulous recipe. Hope you all did too! I think you could definitely play around with the recipe to get the results you need! Luckily I came across your recipe fairly quickly since I was blocking up the grocery lanes searching: Perhaps you could sub another nut butter, such as almond?

Doing so not only allows you to control the ingredients, but you can also make a whole slew of them far more economically than buying a small box of the organic ones. Mine are kind of shiny. It was very frustrating. The ingredient that gives them such a great texture without the benefit of baking is — you guessed it — coconut oil!
