Very delicious! Though, I'm considering some low cal substitutions because it's packing a lot (cal) for it's lower volume/yield. Great idea and very tasty!!

I only had peanuts on hand, so used 1/2 C peanuts and 1/2 C peanut butter as I was afraid it would be overwhelmingly peanuty with 3/4 of both. I omitted the top "frosting" layer, as well. I think it came out decadent and yummy, kind of like an extra rich, extra moist peanut butter cookie.

it turned out very good. i omitted the frosting cause i thought that it would be too much then. i also used figs instead of dates as thats what i had at hand.i also used crunchy peanut butter instead of the smooth one and used 1/2 cup instead of 3/4 cup peanut butter and still turned out good. thanks for sharing the recipe
