Very moreish

Very tasty indeed. I put chocolate chips and sultanas in mine and used a mix of butter and oil. I doubt they will last the day!

Made them, without coconut

Actually I like the idea very much! So while my croissants are waiting to cool in the fridge I just passed by this recipe, just had to feed and throw away some starter. And I decided to give it a chance. Don't have coconut, and don't like it so much, I just added more oats. Right now I'm waiting the biscuits to cool and I hope it will be a success. The smell is fantastic! Thank you!
