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


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
