I didn't have butter at hand, however I had loads of peanuts, so I ground them into peanut butter and substituted that. I also added half a cup of rolled oats and an egg since after the oats it seemed to come apart a bit. Subbed half of the white flour for full wheat flour and reduced the amount of brown sugar in the topping by half.

Can't believe other reviews. I expected these to be sweet, but even small pieces (serves 16 - well make it 32) were so sweet my teeth ached.
Would try with only 1/2 C brown sugar (not 1 C) in topping and 1 C
nuts instead of 1/2 C & no powdered sugar at all! Would not serve them as in the recipe!!!!

These are GREAT!! I took these to our Accordion Club and they were a hit! (And, contrary to popular opinion, accordion players do have taste.) Great recipe!

Our familiy couldn't be happier with how this recipe turned out. I followed the recipe exactly, and it was a huge hit.They are clamoring for me to make it again.
It takes a while to make because of the several steps, but the results are well worth it.
