    Erika is just the best!! Such a creative chef and the sweetest girl on top of it!! Can’t wait to try these!

    Tried this out!! The proportions didn’t make enough for a 13 by 9 pan so I used a smaller one! They were pretty easy to make and I just put rolled oats in the blender to make flour! Love all the protein but great taste!
