This is a healthier take on a favorite recipe without giving up flavor. Its one of my family's favorite and our 4 year old can't eat enough.

We had some company over and wanted to do something a little different. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised at how well this turned out. It has a nice sweet hearty taste, but not the typical over bearing whole wheat flower taste.
