    Accidently made these with ground almonds instead of flaked almonds but they still came out awesome so it's worth experimenting with both. Me and my family loved them! - 06 Jan 2017


    My son brings these home from school every Christmas - the only difference is they add chopped figs as well. Delicious, and highly more-ish! - 28 Jul 2016
