These are really easy to make, and look like you've spent a lot of time in the kitchen, when all you've done is used a couple of mixes.

Really good recipe. I used 4 egg whites instead of eggs to lighten the batter just a tiny bit, but so good. Could have used even a few more seeds, but delish. Try it with lemon cream cheese for true lemon lovers.
