After the first pan came out of the oven, I thought it needed a little more flavor, so I added more spices. My daughter asked for chocolate chips, so those went in too. Very good with chocolate.

Very good and easy. The dough is very wet and will spread easy. I waited to put on the pan just before putting in the oven.
