    Yes they will be thicker. You will need to increase the recipe. Come back and let us know how it turned out.

  2. Annie F. says:

    These are always a hit with friends and they’re easy to serve families in need of meals at church. I wish these could be thicker. If I doubled the recipe and put it in a 9×13 and cooked a little longer, so you think it would turn out the same but more dense? Thanks for your time and feedback.

    Just made this for the kids tomorrow morning. Used 1 cup of wholemeal flour and 1 cup of white flour and it tastes amazing. Will serve with greek yoghurt, maple syrup and berries – they are going to love it. Thank you for the great recipe.
