  • These taste great. I agree, they are pretty high in calories. I tried them using 1/2 c. sugar, 1/2 c. splenda. They taste great, so next time, I'll use all splenda and no sugar. I also used Bran Flakes, and only 5 cups of it. Mine made 50, at 71 cal. each. (Next time I'll use low fat P.B.) - 4/23/08

  • It does sound to be very tasty but must agree it is full of sugar. I will stick with my all natural PB and celery sticks of course with moderation on the PB. - 2/23/08

  • I agree with Lilahmoose...you could make it healthier by replacing sugar with splenda and corn flakes with fiber one cereal. Better than cookies or candy bars as a snack. - 1/30/08

  • This sounds good for my brothers. They love pb. It is a good snack as a sub for a candy bar. Or families with skinny children, when you make cookies and tend to sample too much.. but at least these have protein. - 1/30/08
