I made only one change with this recipe; didn't have a banana so stopped at the point of using that. I did have left over coconut milk and wanted to use it up so made these for breakfast. Oh so good, just the right amount of sweetness without being overpowering. Served with butter and a splash of warm maple syrup - YUM
