  6. Devour.
  7. Notes about optional items:
  8. -brown sugar: I add it when I use maple syrup and cocoa and leave it out when I use honey and chocolate chips. How sweet you need them is up to you!
  9. -walnuts: use any kind you want, or leave them out if they're not your jam
  10. -chocolate chips: I use them most of the time, you can use them with cocoa or without and vice versa
  11. -raisins & friends: personally, raisins make me gag and I didn't have any other type of fruit pieces on hand. We rarely use this but some people like a little extra Vitamin C!
