    Used different ingredients. We love these in my household ... it's become a regular for us. try using half caster sugar and half brown sugar. Finally, I add 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract ... gives it a nice flavour.  -  21 Jul 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. I've made these twice now for my twin toddlers. The first time the taste was great, but as everyone said, they were pretty crumbly. But they were good enough that I didn't want to give up so the 2nd time I added 4tbsp flour and substituted about 5tbsp dark brown sugar for the caster sugar. This time they definitely came out a little denser but very moist and flavourful. they've been a hit -- easy to cut, pick up and eat with sticky little hands. Thanks for a great idea. I think I'll try adding a nut butter next time.  -  21 Jul 2008


    Used different ingredients. Left out the baking powder because what's the point of it? Used half light brown sugar and half white. Added a big handful of cashews and omega seed mix. Yummy!  -  05 Apr 2011
