I make this for a snack fairly often and love it although I don't include the raisins. I add some high quality vanilla extract which seems to improve the taste. I also think it would be really good with some baked or dried apples on top! Read More

This was good but it lacked some flavor what I taste is very mellow. I didn't have almond butter so I chose to use cashew butter instead and it turned out fine. It didn't really rise for me though. I would make this again but as a topping for ice cream. or with something else as it is not that flavorful on its own. Read More

I had to substitute peanut butter and a chopped date for the almond butter and raisins since I didn't have them but I don't think the flavor was affected much. This was really good fast naturally sweetened (which fits my diet plan) and as a bonus even my kids loved it. This is a regular staple in our breakfast rotation. Read More

I used 5 tsp of peanut butter simply because I barely had any left and it still turned out great! Very good! Read More

At first I was a little disappointed with the texture. I guess I had been expecting the typical "mug cake" or "mug cookie" baked texture. I used a 14oz mug and it overflowed so be sure to use a bigger mug. Once I got past that the flavor...OMG delicious! I'll definitely make this one again! Read More
