These are basically like my breakfast…just baked. John thinks they taste like pumpernickel bread, although they bear no resemblance to the real thing.
Pros: They hold together. They are not very rich or sweet.
Cons: The texture is a little off–a bit mushy inside. They are also a bit weirdly salty, so I’d decrease the salt next time.
