A nice oaty cookie with a subtle flavour from the brown sugar and cocoa. Seemed very easy to cook (sometimes its down to seconds if you over/under cook a cookie!). They kept a good shape and this recipe makes a big batch so I will actually be able to save some for tomorrow! - 07 May 2011


So easy to make and they taste delicious. I thought the mixture was too wet but its fine. Try these you won't regret it. - 05 Jul 2016
