    Something else. Mixture abit bland - added approx.1/2 tsp of cinnamon and seemed better.  -  19 Oct 2010


    Nice little healthy snacks! I used sundried dates which gave the bikkies a nice caramel flavour. I also used thick cut natural oats for a delicious chewy texture. I think if you wanted to vary the biscuits a bit you could add cacao nibs or even drizzle some melted dark chocolate over the top. For a fluffier texture, I think a couple tablespoons of whole meal self-raising flour could be added. Next time I'll try them with coconut oil instead of vegetable oil. Thank you for sharing!  -  29 Jan 2015


    I added dark chocolate instead of the dates (roughly chopped) and added a good pinch of cinnamon, and used vanilla sugar instead of vanilla essence. I also used unsalted butter melted instead of vegetable oil (75g). Our oven is too good (less than a year old), so next time I will try cooking at 170 degrees. Overall very happy with recipe flavor and will make this again.  -  16 Jan 2016
