I tried this with coconut oil as the "dairy-free spread" and they did not stick together at all, just crumbled apart.

Great recipe! I add about 200g of oats, 200g of the fruit and then take out some of the nuts and add in seeds instead. Tastes delicious, made four batches in the last three weeks!

Tasty but a bit greasy, will use less spread next time!

Could I use peanut butter or any other type of nut butter instead of non-dairy spread?

Thanks for your question. We haven't tried this as an alternative so we can't say how these would turn out. If you decide to give it a go, let us know how you get on.

Do they keep well in the fridge for a day in a air tight container?
