Delish! Even my very picky eater ate 4. I only omitted the walnuts and accidentaly the baking soda.
Yum! These were so tasty! Everyone really enjoyed them at our house. Will be making again. Thanks for posting! Made for the October 2009 Aussie/NZ recipe swap.
I have made these twice. They are kind of small, but contain fiber and protein so are filling. Not very much fat either. Good taste.
