  1. This was very good. I made this recipe over the weekend. I couldn’t find pumpkin seeds, so I used crushed walnuts instead. I also switched out the dried cherries with some Traverse Bay Farms no sugar added organic dried cherries. The kids ate through them in only a few days. Thanks for the share.

    • Awesome! We also use the organic no sugar added dried cherries…seriously do not understand why companies wreck natures goodness by adding a bunch of junk to it. I am so pleased to hear that other people enjoyed them too…and kids none the less.
