This is a delicious snack you can feel good about giving your kiddos. I used whole wheat flour and yogurt to make this snack healthier, but if you do not have them on hand you will still get amazing results by using white flour and oil or applesauce in place of the yogurt. Sour cream would also be a great replacement alternative for the yogurt in this recipe. Two teaspoons of Pumpkin Pie Spice can be used in place of the cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg.
