These do sound good and not too many ingredients is great since I don't always have a lot of "baking" ingredients to make baked goods and I find it expensive to buy cookies and bars, ect, at the store.

My family likes peanut butter so I think I will bake this today as a nice treat.

Thanks for sharing!
