    We will probably substitute for almond butter because my son is allergic to
    peanuts, but I love this! Were the oats you used gluten free as well?

    looks delicious! can’t wait to try it!

  31. Veronika McDonald King on February 20, 2016: (Reply)

    I can’t wait to try this. We’re always looking for healthy low sugar
    recipes and being vegan is an added bonus, why hurt the animals if you
    don’t have to? We love Bob’s Red Mill, Justin’s and 365 products. The
    chocolate chips are perfect for a small treat when up late with babies.
    Justin’s also has a delicious almond butter. When I had gestational
    diabetes I ate a ton of it and now that my twins are eating solid food I’m
    feeding it to them as well. They love it mixed into baby multigrain cereal
    with some apple sauce and they love almond butter and apricot puree
    sandwiches. No added sugar for these babies, they’re sweet enough!

    I use bobs red mill for everything !! Pizza crust, oats, other pre-made
    mixes. Makes life easy when you have many food restrictions.

  33. Katsheart2002 on February 21, 2016: (Reply)

    Those look delicious!!!! Can’t wait to make them!

  34. Laura's Home Cookin' on February 21, 2016: (Reply)

  41. Kenny Ly on February 22, 2016: (Reply)

    I love Sprouts Farmers Market, especially their own brand they carry. There
    are so many natural and organic options in the store, but the Sprouts brand
    is particularly my favorite because everything they have tastes real and
    authentic. My go-to item right now is the Sprouts coconut water! It tastes
    so fresh and they definitely have a better, more distinct taste than any
    other brand’s coconut water :)

  42. godschild60071 on February 22, 2016: (Reply)

    Awesome recipe ! More Vegan options please ???
