    I’ve just made these, they’re delicious, my 3.5yr old and 18mth old also love them. Winner! Thanks Peta!

    Made these last week and they were so yummy. My 19 month old and hubby inhaled them. I found them slightly dry and crumbly when rolling so I added a couple of tablespoons of coconut oil which seemed to help bind them together without changing the taste too much.

    Do you think this recipe will work with grated Apple?
