    Wow! This sounds fantastic!
    Have you ever tried making it with a alternate flour like spelt?

    I made these tonight to go with smoked salmon and cucumber relish. I have not tasted anything that good in some time. These were absolutly KILLER!!! I doubled the cinnamon and used honey instead of sugar. I also used Prairie Gold flour which is a white whole wheat flour and the best flour we have ever used. This is a five fork recipe if ever anything was! Way to go, keep 'em comin'

    Dang... I made these soon after you posted and forgot to rate it... Now were having again this weekend.. I love these.. so do my grandkids so I end up making a double batch.. Note to self and U.. I tried baking them done but not browned... let cool, wrapped in plastic wrap and bagged.. and froze... took them out and re-heated... they were great! Just a thought for those who are only feeding 2.. You can freeze and re heat.. just don't brown them the first time cooking!
