Recipe Notes

I snuck some whole grain flour into this recipe, but if you don't have it don't sweat it.  Just substitute with white flour.

Any soy nut butter or peanut butter substitute can be swapped for the peanut butter if there are allergies in the family.

Allergy Tips
  • Substitute Wow butter or any soy-nut butter for the peanut butter to make a more school friendly snack.
