I think we already have these. They're called "Dipps".

Thank you soooo much for sharing that one!
Can't wait to try it. Question.......have you tried adding nuts or dried fruit to the mixture? Just wondering how it would effect the mixture. ie need to add more butter, egg, etc...

Not sure how it would work if you added more stuff, I think you'd have to add a bit more moisture somehow

I'm definitely going to make these! I think my 10-year-old will love them. I may try to experiment with different sweeteners, like honey or stevia - maybe even some splenda brown sugar blend - to reduce the processed sugar content. At least they do have whole grain - and that's a good thing!

Thanks for the recipe.
