This one bowl recipe is easy and fast AND pretty dang irresistible. Plus they are vegan (so of course dairy-free and egg-free) and soy-free and gluten-free. I personally think they are best warm or at least the same day you bake them. They will last 1-2 days, but they may dry out past that. Trust me; you'll want these fresh and if you have toddlers in your house, they will absolutely enjoy these warm. Alright, and you will too.
