This was Ok. The problems where: tasted too sweet, you could taste the backing powder (too much in recipe , use less) and it was way undercooked (tasted raw like batter) in the middle while being almost overcooked on the outside. 3 stars

Also, if you do make it, I highly recommend the addition of chocolate chips. I use Lilies chocolate chips because they are auger free

I absolutely LOVE this recipe!!! I have made double batches 3 times now. My children and husband love it as well. Not loaded with sugar, so super guilt free. MAKES FABULOUS PEANUT BUTTER AND HONEY SANDWICHES :) Thank you so much for sharing! 5 stars!
