    very Tasty - quite sweet but that stops them being dull - added chocolate chunks to keep kids happy!  -  05 Jan 2012


    Great recipe, I used some agave nectar instead of so much singer and they turned out great. They don't keep though but freezing them works a treat  -  08 Mar 2014


    Turned out great, very moist and not too sweet. Might try adding peanut butter next time!  -  11 Nov 2013
