"These were sooo good, my 20 month old couldn't eat enough (literally I had to cut her off). I also ground up the flax seeds, used old fashioned oats, and I realized halfway into the recipe I was out of eggs and it turned out perfect and delicious."

But with out the blueberries! I just love TOH recipes. It was funny I went to review this recipe and saw that I have but in 2011.
