These are excellent! I've had this recipe in my file for months, and finally remembered to try it. These are satisfying and healthy at the same time. I did substitute sunflower seeds for half the flax seed because I didn't have enough flax seed, and I used dried cherries and apricots for the fruit. I will make these often now! Thanks for the great recipe:)
