READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by MommyMakes

Appropriate for Diabetics. Uses a food processor, great way to hide the nutrious stuff from the kids! Can be made up to 4 hours ahead before baking.

Everyone enjoyed these for brunch today. It is a great technique when you mix in the food processor. I used old fashioned oats and half white and half pastry flour. The oat flour makes nice soft dough with delicate results. Glad that I choose these for the photo swap.
