    Tried the recipe and the cookies were both crispy and chewy just like the recipe said, however, my family thought the molasses was slightly overpowering in taste even though I had cut back on the 1/4 cup amount to just 2 tablespoons of it.

    Hi Bridget,
    I am looking for a recipe that was in your last e book it had rice krispies peanut butter I think, molasses, chocolate chips, maybe maple syrup. It also featured the almond flour cookie. Could you help find the bar recipe for me.
    I have the cookie which we absolutely loved and I printed it off but not the bar
    Thanks so much

      No flour needed and I used coconut sugar. They spread a good amount and melt in your mouth. I tossed in sliced almonds, chocolate chips and ginger.
      My oven tends to run hot so turned the pan @ 5mins and removed it at another 5.
