I substituted tahini for the peanut butter. Came out great. I'm wondering how long they will last in the refrigerator with the raw spinach but they will probably be gone in a day or two anyway.

Nicely done. Try cropping your photos to 4:3 or 1:1 next time to see how your Instructable comes out. I suspect that your project will look a bazillion times fancier with some aggressive cropping. (Try Pixlr, maybe? Website or app or built into the photo uploader.)
