Ingredients and Variations

Glaze – This simple glaze can be made sugar-free by using a brown sugar sweetener if desired.

Variations – Why not sprinkle on some homemade granola, toasted coconut, chopped nuts, mini chocolate chips, peanut butter, or butterscotch chips before cooking for some extra fun flavors?
