    Cashew and oats hotcakes. I only got 11 from recipe. Used quick oats instead and plain water. Used 1/4 measure. What did I do wrong? They are good though.

    When it says 1/2 Blue/Orange, do you pick one or does it count for 1/2 blue AND 1/2 an orange? I have noticed a couple of other recipes say that, and just not sure?

      Hi Melissa,

      Great question. One or the other. On newer recipes, we’ve been asking our nutritionists to select one when they do the portions so it’s less confusing for everyone.
