Recipe by Lizzymommy

Original recipe from a Taste of Home booklet, I've changed spices and added protein powder in an attempt to come up with something delicious AND nutritious for breakfast or snack. I usually double the recipe in order to use a whole apple (and 2 medium-ish carrots). If you don't have protein powder (available in the bulk section of most grocery and/or health food stores), then use 3/4 c. whole wheat flour, 1/2 cup wheat bran, and 1/4 cup all-purpose flour. Try them with nuts or raisins or even dried cranberries for an autumn taste treat!
