    Made these yesterday. Very pleased with the turnout, the almond makes a nice touch, be careful not to exceed the recipe dose. They are suprisingly light I was expecting them to be heavier because of the oats. Kids love em and the oats make them healthish.  -  24 Oct 2011


    Super easy to make with kids. I made them with the mini smarties (7 of the treat size boxes) and 60g of currants. Made about 22 decent sized cookies. Delicious and will definitely make them again!  -  06 May 2015
