But I can’t stop thinking about them. They were scrumptious and sweet and spicy.
I loved them, my kids loved them. My husband liked them a lot (he doesn’t feel the same way about these kind of things as I do. He doesn’t say stuff like “I LOVE THESE!!!!” In fact he doesn’t speak in exclamation at all).

And even though I made these on a Sunday morning, I am sharing them on a Monday- because I love to stress how easy these are to make on weekdays. They are fast and no hassle- just how I like breakfast to be early on a Monday morning.
