Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I meant that I put it in the toaster to dry it out a little. sheesh

I really like these. I have changed up the recipe a little. I use apple sauce instead of pumpkin and I added Mrs. Dash Salt Free and a touch of garlic salt. Once done I put in my the microwave to dry it out a little. Great alternative to a sweeter version.

Can these be frozen?

Hi there! Yes, you can freeze these. :) Enjoy!

Sorry Mr. Food but this is definitely a pass.

These are delicious! Can any other ingredient be used instead of canned pumpkin?

The Mr. Food Test Kitchen has not tried to make this with any substitute for pumpkin and is unsure what could be used instead. If you find something that works for you, let us know in the comments. Enjoy!

Canned sweet potato puree can be used in lieu of the pumpkin.

try unsweetened apple sauce

Also can whole milk be used?

Hi there! Yes, you can use whole milk in this recipe. Thanks!

I don't have a problem with gluten, csn this be made with AP flour?

Great question! While we have not tried to make this recipe with AP flour, we do think that it should work just fine. If you do try it out, let us know in the comments. We would love to hear back from you. Enjoy!
