Recipe by WI Cheesehead

From Outpost Natural Foods, in their Diabetes Fighting flyer. This is almost a one dish recipe. Everything gets mixed together in the pan.

Top Review by Tee Lee

These were good, but a little dry. They go great with hot coffee or tea to dip in, though. I used chopped walnuts instead of pecans. These are great to grab for an easy, healthy breakfast on the go.
