A totally different breakfast than anything I have ever had before, and I am so glad I tried it! It's sweet, yet not so sweet, and with just a touch of cinnamon that I added to it, it was delicious. I served it with honey instead of maple syrup, and can't wait to have these again!
We were very dissapointed. The texture was very grainy and something about the taste was just not right. I'm not sure if more sweetner would have helped. The kids would not eat them at all. I saved them and froze them, though. I'm thinking that I may try to crumble them up and try to make a crust out of them for a quiche.
