I like these cause they're not too sweet but very flavorful.

Good idea...but definitely not sweet enough. Very bland...could use the flavor of brown sugar.

I personally found them pretty bland myself. Decent flavor, but not enough of it. But my 2 year old adored them! Couldn't eat them fast enough. And that, in and of itself, is worth an extra star. I did make a few adjustments to lower fat. I used 2 egg whites for each egg called for. I used 2 tbsp. of canola oil instead of butter, and I used light soy milk.
