I can’t take credit for these tasty nuggets. My mom made a batch and sent a container home with me a few weeks ago.
They were for the kids.
I ate them all.
I thought I should make it up to them, so I made a batch. Then another. Then another. We have been having them once a week ever since. Partly because they’re so easy, partly because they’re so healthy, and mostly because they are so darn good.
Give them a try, but don’t forget to save some for the kids.
