    An incredibly simple recipient. Tastes great too - had great fun making this with my daughter who was amazed at the use for a cup of tea. On attempt 2 I added a few extras, some chopped hazelnuts and cherries. Whilst deviating from the original recipie it made this a great post work out protein and care snack  -  31 Jan 2014  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
