Below is a great recipe for those of you who want a carb-y yet healthy snack. I make a big batch of these, cool them and then freeze them. I then take one or two, put them in the toaster oven and spread some butter on them. Yes, it is indeed delicious. Don’t be afraid to bake these. The only challenging part once you decide to do it is to have all the ingredients so go and get them now. Did you get them yet? How about now? Now?
