These were a huge hit with my friends. I baked them during the recent storm when my friends were seeking refuge from the power outage. Two friends were here when they came out of the oven and loved them. Then I served the rest the next evening when I had more friends over for dinner. They went crazy for them and renamed them Blizzards in honor of our unexpected early November storm. I didn't have wheat germ on hand so I used Grape Nuts cereal. I attempted to grind them down in my mini food processor, but they were too hard to fully grind! I also used white whole wheat flour which I sub in nearly every recipe one for one with white flour. These were easy, delicious and somewhat nutritious so I didn't feel quite as guilty indulging. I will be making these often!
