  5. Roll golfball-sized biscuits, place on tray and flatten gently with a fork to form the cookies.

Store for up to 5 days or as long as you can hold out from eating them all!

For a sugarless version, add 2 tsp of cinnamon powder and 2 drops of liquid stevia.



For something a littler fancier and added nutritional value you might like to include the following:


  • 1-2 tsp ground cinnamon powder - a fantastic natural sweetener that gives a spiced flavour and promotes healthy blood sugar regulation.

  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger - also slightly sweet and bit bitey. An incredibly therapeutic spice that is anti-inflammatory, improves circulation, and aids digestion. Perfect for after dinner.

  • 1 small ripe, mashed banana; or 2 Tbsp fresh or thawed berries - For a little extra sweetness, fibre and (antioxidants if using berries).
