I was just eyeing this recipe in a magazine and seeing your version here makes me want to try it all the more. I was thinking of trying it with my own baking mix (instead of store bought).

I am sure they will turn out great. The kids really loved these. i only tried the nut topping on my oatmeal and it was so good.
