I would vote it a three and my husband voted it a five, so I ended up at three. It was a little dense, obviously due to the lack of oil. I think 1/2 tsp of salt (as in the Betty Crocker recipe) might add some flavor to this one. Overall, it was a healthy treat!
YUMMY as can be! Another keeper recipe is for me! Used 1 Tbsp vanilla extract, true! LOVE is healthy AND delicious too
