  1. Hi. I love your site and concept! I am calorie conscious but also carb and sugar conscious for health reasons. Do you think eventually you are going to update your nutritional information to include these? They are usually provided when you do a calculation through Spark Recipes.So many times I find great recipes but hate doing the work of calculating the nutritional info so if you did make this upgrade it would be a huge help!

    1. Melisa yes we hope to add that in the very near future for all of our recipes! But we do offer it now on our diet menu.

  2. I have had this recipe for awhile now & keep meaning to make them, they look delicious! But I keep forgetting to ask you about the oat bran cereal, Did you mean something like’Cracklin Oat Bran’ cereal(little squares with too much sugar), or something like ‘Fiber One Bran cereal’ that isn’t called ‘oat bran’ cereal? I want to make these for my teenage son who’s doing intense physical training before & after school right now, this would be a great breakfast or snack for him. Thanks!
