    Wow how did i mess this up. Turned out to dry to stick together try correcting it and really blew it. Ill try again the rave reviews convinced me it was my mistake. I tried using Coconut Flour and i wont cook with white sugar so i substituted whole organic torbinado. I think the coconut flour sunk my attempt.. Anyone got a suggestion?  -  08 Dec 2017


    Great base recipe. I did tweak a little. Didn't add the caster sugar and reduced sugar overall. I didn't add any nuts or coconut. I added some milk chocolate raisins and some dark chocolate chips. I cooked for a little longer and halfway through flattened the tops with a fork. Delicious.  -  30 Jun 2013
