1) Great recipe for vegetarians including vegans!
2) Easy and quick to prep
3) You have control over ingredients, examples:
I would a) cut back on total sweeteners and use a) Coconut palm sugar (has lower Glycemic Index than table/brown sugar
b) Canadian 100% maple syrup for antioxidants.
4) I would have rated it 5 stars, if the fats distribution was right, did you notice that when you add 1+4+3= 8 grams, however total fat is 9 grams hence what is the rest of the 1 g?
5) And I would appreciate the total sugar content info under the nutrition facts.
I am sharing this recipe with my colleagues (physicians and nurses ) and family , especially my daughters ( 12 and 10 years old) .
Verdict : GREAT recipe !

EXCELLENT! Very adaptable to whatever ingredients I have on hand. I LOVE the crunchy almonds, candied ginger and fresh grated nutmeg. This is wonderful as a top for an apple crisp. It adds a lot to any flavor greek yogurt too.
