We really liked these! I'm trying to put more whole grains into our diet, so this was a great way to use leftover brown rice. I did put it in the food processor as directed. As I was lifting them off the griddle, they seemed a bit heavy, and I was afraid they would be tough; they are heavier, but that is natural, since they are made from whole grain, and they weren't tough at all. I ate mine topped with a sliced fresh peach and a dab of Reddy Whip! YUM! Definetely a keeper!
