Just went to make these and I don't have any coconut oil.  Any suggestion on what other oils may work?

Kym, give butter a try and see how that goes.

Is Tahini (sesame seed paste out for nut free zones?)
Not sure will have to look into it, before I buy/make some.

Some schools include sesame seeds with nuts.  Try "sunbutter" made from ground up sunflower seeds.
Cathy, does it smell/taste like sunflower seeds?  I ate to many as a child and now the thought & smell make me feel sick.  lol

Thank you very much for all your suggestions.  I am often unsure of variations from the recipe as I worry about failing and wasting ingredients.  :-[

I made another batch on the weekend using condensed milk instead of peanut butter.  I only used 80g of water too.  They taste good.  A bit sweeter than last time, so I will cut back the sugar if I make them like this again.  They took longer to set, but were just as firm as last time (this was one of my worries with using a substitute).  I didn't test the rum option  :(.

The sunflower freenut butter we had was almost identical taste and smell to peanut butter - I had to put in note in DS's lunch box when he went to vacation care, otherwise he gets into trouble for having a nut spread in his box!

I haven't tried "sunbutter" so I'm not sure, I just thought it might be a good option.

Good that the condensed milk worked - yes I would imagine they'd be sweeter but should be able to adjust accordingly as you suggested.

Thanks pinkscrapbooker!  That sounds great.  Where is it sold?

Thank you for your reply Cathy.

I made these biscuits today :) I used raw sugar, and slightly less of it, and added some linseeds and cinnamon. I also used raisins instead of sultanas.

A great, easy recipe. Thanks! :D :D

Do you have a recipe for making sunflower freenut butter? Ours is a nut free school and alternatives are always welcomed.
