    Bguy: READ the description to the right of the picture. It says to buy 100% gluten free porridge oats. Normal porridge oats have gluten in them. People really really need to learn to fully read things before trying it.  -  03 Apr 2012


    Really delicious. I make these for my toddler who refuses to eat meat or pulses in an effort to get more iron and protein into her diet. She loves them. Making them with raisins rather than walnuts gives them a much softer and chewier texture. I top them with melted chocolate.  -  21 Mar 2012


    gotta say, very nice, and if bguy had read the recipe completely, they'd have noticed the 'be sure to 100% gluten free oats' comment at the beginning.  -  28 Mar 2012
