Ingredients

  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 tablespoon runny honey
  • 80g almond or peanut butter

Method

  • Add the vanilla, honey, cinnamon and raisins or chocolate chips and mix to form a sticky dough.
  • If the dough is too sticky, add more oats. If the dough is a bit too dry, add more nut butter to get just the right consistency.
