Hey, thank you for the recipe!!! I have made this twice, the second adding a bit of vannila to the PB/honey mixture and can’t decide which is better. Do you think is a good substitute for the peanut butter? My friends got a daughter who is allergic and I wanted to bring this around for treat as my kids (and others) gobble it up. There is soy but butter but what about sunflower seed butter? If you have any suggestions, I would appreciate them. Thanks.
Soy nut butter. Sorry
I’m so glad you enjoy this recipe!! I have not tried it with anything but peanut butter, but I’m sure any butter would work just fine. Even cookie butter like Biscoff!
Thanks! I see how this goes.

Absolutely delicious! I ate it like cereal and it was amazing 🙂
How many calories do you think are in a serving of this? Or I guess the whole recipe & broken down into servings?
There are about 160 calories in each 1/4 cup serving. I probably only used about 2 Tbs on my yogurt though and it was plenty! Enjoy!
