  1. Made these today with plain toasted oat cereal and no raisins (didn’t have any) and they taste amazing! My two year old loved them as well!
    Will definitely make again.

    1. Opal – Great question! When I have made them they do not become mushy and are certainly tasty! My kids love them for a quick breakfast on the go!
