    I cut the maple syrup in half and added some almond extract in addition to the vanilla! Came out with a great nutty / cherry taste!

    I made these and we absolutely love them. They are a great healthy indulgence. Any one know the nutritional information?

  3. Me and my girlfriend just made these and my gosh! These are delicious! You don’t feel guilty for eating them packed of proteins. We are already brainstorming other recipes we can make along these same lines! Great recipe will be making them again!
