  • Very Good

    Good basic recipe! I adapted it using what I had in the cupboard: tahini for part of the peanut butter, almonds for the walnuts, currants instead of the other dried fruit, and a few sesame seeds on the top. The oven temp is missing and I found the baking time a bit too short - try 20 min @ 350F. - 3/22/08

  • Great versatile recipe! I will use diced prunes instead of dried blueberries, and mini choc. chips too. I have pecan pieces - will use those to replace the walnuts.
    Also, due to food allergies, and to make it gluten free friendly. I will use oat flour to replace the wheat flour. - 2/22/12
