    Made these at the weekend with my son and they are fab. Took a load to the childminders and all her children loved them so much she has asked for the recipe. I like them chewy so baked for 12 mins in my fan oven and they get better the day after being baked I thought. Didn't have choc chips but did put a few raisins and peanuts in along with the chopped dried apricots. Yum!  -  30 Oct 2013

    Does anyone know how many tablespoons are made by the crushed weetabix? I heard you can substitute an equal amount of rye flour, and I'd love to try it.  -  02 Nov 2009
