I created an account finally just so I could review this recipe, which seemed to have no reviews for some reason. :) Late last night I had a craving for a piece of bread or something and since I don't normally stock these things in the house, I had to make it. So, I found this recipe and had all the ingredients. I halved the recipe so I wouldn't end up with so many. And it turned out SOOOO GREAT! And it was super quick too! Which is important because everyone in the house was asleep and I needed to be quick and quiet. lol... Anyhow, I put sesame seeds on top of one, garlic powder on another, and when they came out put a dab of peanut butter in another.... basically, I experimented. WAS so good, whether I combined with savory or sweet things. So, thank you for the recipe... which I will officially now use all the time.

<p>Please Rate My Recipes! :) I am a mommy to two wonderful boys and two beautiful girls. My cooking is primarily focused on making sure what goes into their bodies is wholesome, natural, and as organic as possible. Today's fast paced methods of eating (ie: drive-thrus, and microwaves) are kind of what I hope to not let into our home. We love our sit-down family dinners, healthy snacks that are good for our bodies, and knowing that if our kids get into the cupboards, there isn't anything in there that they can't eat. I try to educate my family on the importance of maintaining healthy eating habits, knowing that if we start now, it will benefit us for years to come.</p>
