This is my adaptation of a recipe from Food Network. I've substituted some ingredients to make them even healthier! They are super moist and delicious for breakfast or a snack. —Skinnyfatkid

I made it with half ground flax, half whole wheat flour and, as I didn't have pineapple, I substituted a banana. Very yummy.

The applesauce adds moisture and flavor. A quick swap would be to increase the amount of crushed pineapple to 3/4 cup, to substitute for the applesauce.
