SO HOW'D IT GO?

YUM....i didnt do much measuring....just a handful of each, added some flaxseeds and a bit of applesauce to moisten instead of the OJ. I'll be lucky if those things make it till tomorrow i could eat the whole thing right now!

Oh my gosh - these are to die for!! :o Just made them as a treat for my husband but I'm not sure if there will be any left by the time he gets home!  I didn't have any pecans so used walnuts, and also added some grated orange peel.  Rolled them in shredded coconut.  A wonderful "guilt-free" treat.
