Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is one of my all time favorite recipes. They are so good, very filling, easy to tote around, keep well in the freezer, and are a great snack or light breakfast. I usually make a double or triple batch and freeze the bites. To make things simpler, I usually make extra of step one, and keep it in the pantry. I do the rest of the recipe in my Kitchenaid stand mixer (mixing by hand would involve a lot of elbow grease). So good!
