I ran into this recipe from Heavenly Homemakers website. I was really excited to try them since I no longer buy the store bought version due to all the sugar in them. These are good and my kids loved them. They are most definetly not sweet like the store bought but they are satisfying as a healthier option. *Next time I make these I will probably substitute half the butter for a ground flax/water combination and/or applesauce to help cut down on some of the fat.
