This is great for breakfast or as a snack. The recipe is really quite easy. The recipe is found in the 'Can't Believe It's Kosher' cookbook.

This is a fantastic recipe. Every year I struggle to find a breakfast cereal and/or snack for the family. It is a winner. Very addictive. I have to make double batches to keep up with the family.
This is the only thing my kids will eat for breakfast during Passover. I sometime use different dried fruits or nuts, but it always comes out great!
These are very delicious! It was good even fresh from the oven. A great way to have matzos. Thanks!
