    I made these with almond butter due to my son's allergy. I also used coconut oil instead of butter and added flax seeds. The kids in my son's preschool loved them. His teacher requested the recipe so they could make them in class!

    I put mine onto a square of waxed paper and gave it a twist. That helped to form the shape and keep it together, and made it not sticky for putting into bags or pockets.

    My 6 year old is diabetic and I am looking for wholesome sugar/honey free recipes. Would this work without the honey?

    I made these for my boys and they loved them. I had raisins in the pantry and used them. I made them larger than required, I will make them again they were so easy and quick.

    Like every Martha Stewart recipe I've made the yield is never what I get. It states 24 - I got 38. Not complaining - just saying. Great little snack - super easy to make.
