    Very easy to make - we substituted golden syrup for honey, also used 150g of oaty muesli with fruit in it rather than oats and raisins, all of which made it a bit gloppy so we added a bit more flour to bind it. It made 12 big cookies which disappeared very quickly!

    Yum!! Although the mix didn't make 15/20, but that may have something to do with me 'sampling' the mixture from the bowl

    Didn't bind together right, not a success really wouldn't make them again :-(

    Really yummy but don't overcook as they get a bit too hard. Continue to harden as they cool.

    We made these with butter instead too and added some chopped cherries. Very easy and lovely too. DD enjoyed making them!

    Could someone give me an alternative to this with less sugar,or no sugar please.

    Mmmm mmm. I cheated too - made with 150g muesli rather than oats and raisins, used syrup rather than honey [blush] and ginger. Very very nice. Trying to hide them from the kids.

    I skipped the raisins and used treacle instead of honey and they were fantastic.

    soooooo delicious! I may have made them less healthy though, I left out the spices and raisins and didnt have honey so used golden syrup! You can make them in seconds. Will definately make them with my son too

    My youngest has many allergies including dairy, eggs and nuts and these cookies are brilliant for her and a good alternative to flapjacks.
