    all we had was berry flavoured instant porridge from aldi which gave the biscuits a funny smell. we also had no chocolate chips. despite this the biscuits were still somehow enjoyable, i'm sure they would be even better if i didn't use instant porridge with bits of freeze dried berry in it.  -  01 Sep 2017


    This recipe is fantastic. We made these as bar cookies in a 9x11 and baked for 20 min. They were nice and gooey when warm and set up great once they cooled.  -  21 Dec 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    These are the best cookies! I looked all over for a recipe oatmeal cookies with cocoa, as I always have cocoa on hand, but not always chocolate chips. They are really moist and even without the chips, very chocolatey!  -  12 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
