    I made these in the tradtional way and they looked goo but they were very bland. I added 1/2 mashed banana too. Iwould add more sugar-maybe increase to 1/4 cup and a dash of cinnamon.

    My family is trying to eat healthier, and this definitely helped. We ate this recipe in less than two days, they were great! I even got my sister into cooking after this recipe; it encouraged her to make new things.
