Easy and tasty

I only had an 8x8 pan and it worked fine. I was surprised when the center rose during baking but it completely settled during the 15-min cool down. They were easy to remove from the pan, and tasted warm and cozy on cold November day. Leftovers will be great with coffee at breakfast. (I decided to grind the oats in the streusel a little bit too.)
