The first batch was gobbled up right away so I had to make a second batch, ha! I wasn’t mad about it though because it takes just a few minutes to mix everything together in the blender and then pop in the oven. Plus, that’s always a good sign that a recipe is worth keeping, isn’t it?

Feel free to experiment with the nuts you add. Pictured above are pecan pieces but walnuts and seeds would probably be tasty too!
