Still, it was quite good. I added sunflower seeds instead of walnuts because of the nut restriction at my kids’ preschool. But I didn’t have any raw seeds, and the salted toasted kind made little unappetizing green halos around the nuts when it baked. Probably there’s some explanation of alkaline/salt reactions in the McGee book, and if I ever get past the milk chapter (which is chapter one, yo), I’ll figure it out.
The kids liked it, but the adults liked it better, so I think it needs some tweaking. Maybe I’ll tweak some chocolate chips into it.
