These are so good and easy to make. I love that they are Small Batch. I made a batch with Raisins and another batch with Cinnamon Chips. Just don't know which one I like better. Gave the recipe to a RVing Friend. Her Hubby loved them. Going to be the new traveling recipe.

So glad I found Zona Cooks. (My Hubby is too)
