Yum, thanks for the quick and easy recipe… i whipped up a batch of these tonight, although i really should have used cases to hold them as they stuck to the pan and crumbled as i was getting them out (i overloaded the choc chips so they wouldn’t have held together very well in cases either though)
Plan to make another batch or three of these to freeze for the kids recesses and for that sugar craving we might get from time to time.

I know I am behind the times but I have just found this recipe on your site and I have made two batches – one with frozen berries and one with chocolate chips. I used vanilla yoghurt instead of cream and a little less sugar than recommended. The berry ones look great – the juices have gone all jammy! Thank you for sharing, this one is a keeper. Going to try wholemeal flour next time.

Do you think this will work using coconut cream, as my daughter is allergic to dairy?

Mardi i have never tried but i honestly can’t see why it wouldn’t work. Please let me know how they turn out, i am curious now.:)
