This tasted so good, but I made some subs. orange-strawberry-banana Crysal Light for OJ (which also made it more low-calorie, and didn't give it the bitter taste many others mentioned) whole grain wheat plus a little bit of baking soda and powder and salt instead of the baking mix (to also make it healthier) sugar with a sugar sub (because I thought there would be enough natural sweetness) I ommited the oil and just added in some extra juice, and instead of folding the nuts into the mixture (I used half walnuts, half almonds), I just put them on top and pressed them down in to the dough. I didn't find this to be moist enough (and I took it out earlier so it wasn't overbaked) and it didn't rise very much at all. Next time, I might add a couple T of strawberry or original flavored applesauce to make it more moist, and use alot more baking powder to make it rise more. Also, when i was mixing it it the batter was thicker than cookie dough so I thought I might have done something wrong, but I think it really is supposed to be that thick. Last, this tastes best when eaten with something sweet, such as a glaze or jelly or butter. I might make this into French Toast tommorrow, and see how that turns out. Oh, and (this is the real last thing, I promise) don't add any spices to it, as I ate this with cinnamon honey butter and I didn't find the tastes complimented each other. The honey tasted really good with it though!
