I changed up the recipe a lot, but this is where I got the idea from.  These guys are DELICIOUS!  They are also addicting, so don’t plan on eating just one!  Thankfully, they are GREAT for you, so you don’t have to feel bad about chowing down on them!  They’re easy to make, and make for a perfect breakfast, or as a snack during the day (or both!).
