I actually have this book but gave up using it as I found it too time consuming and a lot of the recipes were bland ... this was all before the Thermomix hahaha

Just made these cookies and they are a big hit :) The batch made 40 dessert spoon size balls. They barely spread when baking, so I placed 12 on a baking tray and lightly pressed them down. I also sprinkled in some LSA mix for some extra nutrition.

Yummo! Definitely be making again :)

I'm not sure  :D
I followed the recipe exactly! Then rolled them into balls and pressed down lightly. I used tinned chickpeas with fluid drained, not dry  chickpeas? The dough was very easy to handle :)

Made these this afternoon - kids loved them warm so will be interesting to see how they go cold.

I made these today with a  180g packet of Cadbury mini drops. The kids gave them the thumbs up, but DD guessed that there was a secret ingredient in them (she knows me well  :o). However, she guessed zucchini instead of chick peas :-\

Much happier this time. This time I puréed the chickpeas and oats until smooth then set aside. Also used white chocolate, milk chocolate and caramel bits which turned out lovely.
