    This is an okay cookie. I did enjoy the chewy texture,but I think to add more flavour to them there should be more coconut and other nuts in it.  -  05 Jan 2011


    just made these, after reading many other reviews i tweaked it a little....150g sugar total, 1/2 plain white flour and 1/2 wholemeal plain flour, added 1tsp baking powder. Also added a good handful of raisins to the mix. Fab worked really well.  -  23 May 2017


    How much sugar!! Blimey. So I didn't want us to have a sugar high so I tweaked the recipe. I left out the caster sugar. I put in a tablespoon of honey to help bind it and about 100g of descicated coconut. I also added some raisings because my little girl loves them. I used rapeseed oil rather than sunflower oil as it was what I've got in the cupboard. They where delicious. Probably not as chewy as the original recipe!!  -  17 May 2015
