Comments on this Recipe

This looks delicious. We're looking for more breakfast meals, since we don't really eat breakfast, so thanks for the recipe. Yumm.

I have made these several times for my non-vegan coworkers & they LOVE them! They always ask me to bring more next time. Great way to introduce vegan items to skeptics!

I love these. The maple glaze is a little sweet for my taste, so I just use cinnamon sugar and they are always gone within a day.
