I created this recipe by tweaking one I already had. I added flax seed, substituted whole-wheat flour for some all-purpose, applesauce for some oil and fat-free milk for whole. My family loved the changes, and now it's a favorite. —Judy Parker, Moore, Oklahoma

"These were great! Since my husband cannot have milk, I used almond milk. I substituted whole wheat sprouted grain flour for the all purpose flour. Really enjoyed these."
