Didn't have corn flakes so used all almonds. Soooo good. Served with a blueberry-almond butter.
The flavor was excellent. I added the same dry spices to the connflake mixture. I had half the egg mixture left over which I used in a baked oatmeal. I found the cornflakes to be a little tough. Next time I crush them a little finer.
