Not good. Very dry. Look good though.

I really liked this as a low carb option. I tried it with truvia, and thought it tasted good but does have a truvia after taste.

I following the recipe with two minor changes: 1) I used Swerve instead of Truvia 2) I used 2/3 cup smooth peanut butter and 1/3 cup extra crunchy. Next time I will add a little more Swerve to ...

made it exactly as written. Delicious! Even my picky teenager liked them. I usually do not like Truvia either but in these, it was fine. Looking forward to making again. So quick and easy!
