I originally made these for my husband, but they were so delicious, I think I ate most of them. Amazingly yummy, and full of healthy ingredients! —Holly

Yes! These look great. I will sub maple syrup for honey because my daughter is allergic to honey. My husband and I are gluten free and this looks like the quick breakfast option we need. Thank you for no OATS!

The photograph is TERRIBLE on this! I can't believe anyone found them to be appetizing. They are absolutely addictive. I had made them for my husband and then ended up eating almost all of them myself! Let me know how it goes for you with the maple syrup. If it weren't so expensive here in the UK, I'd give it a try with maple.
