Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is a great snack/treat - not low in fat, but the fat it does have is good fat. My kids LOVE these. This is the first recipe we tried - but there are many variations that are excellent too. We sometimes add peanuts instead of sunflower seeds, have tried oats in place of walnuts, and also frequently add
of healthy peanut butter. Delicious!
