Amazing breakfast for everyone

Just made these with the changes suggested by the first commentator, and they are scrummy! Will be making these a lot.

I like this lot but it needs sweetness to make it truly enjoyable. I added 3tbsp agave to the mix and it was not over sweet but just enough to make it yummy. I like to bake it in a deep 6 hole muffin tin, then it's a good portion sized breakfast for a few days for me and the kids.
