I made these for a neighborhood potluck, and they were a hit. I personally ate more than a few. Ahem. But they have almond butter, so… protein? Yes.

  2. Thanks for the cocoa powder substitution–I so rarely have baking chocolate, because every time it comes into the house I make molten lava cakes and poof it’s gone. Cocoa powder hangs out in the pantry a bit longer.
