These are wonderful little cakes to top off a good salad. They also work well as a side to grilled veggies. Super easy to make!

These were great! Got three thumbs up in my family. Quick to make & a nice change for my DH who's been doing low carb. However, they took longer to bake than 4 min - maybe my oven temperature's off. Made for Vegn Recipe Swap 2

These were delicious. I am not giving starts bc I think my oven thermostat is off. After 3 minutes they were almost flat and spread out. I scraped them off after they cooled and used them anyway but they were not as pretty. Tasted yummy! Sorry JB! *Made for ZWT*
