I made a half batch of these for playgroup but forgot to 1/2 the baking soda so mine turned out quite cake like. Not a big almond lover so used 1/2 almond & 1/2 coconut essence for flavouring & some unwanted brekky cereal in the cupboard in place of granola. These were really tasty & were gobbled up by the kids. Thanks!
