This recipe was absolutely delicious. Just the only thing I changed was the amount of sugar and maple syrup. Pretty much half of each and it was still sweet and tasty. :)

FYI, the recipe instrux don't include pumpkin seeds! Tho' I assume they should be added with the oats ...

mm good. Instead of sugar I used 1/8 T stevia. Could probably cut back on the maple syrup some and substitute some non sweet liquid to reduce sweetness further if desired
