    Simple and delish! I used Maple Syrup (not as thick as GS) and added chopped dates. I also drizzled a little extra Maple Syrup when mixing as the mixture looked a little crumbly. I love ginger so added another 3/4 tbspn. Mmmm Smile

    For some reason they were quite crumbly, I wasn't able to roll, had to kind of squeeze them into a ball shape. Hey tasted great and my family enjoyed.

    Submitted by Thermoblaze on 31. July 2016 - 15:24.

    Doubled the ginger... Perfect!  My mixture was quite dry and crumbly so ended up adding extra butter at the end which worked fine... Think I had something touching my thermomix when I was measuring the dry ingredients which must have put the scales out.

    Submitted by Megsy13 on 30. June 2015 - 17:21.

    Amazing!  These will be a staple in our lunchbox snacks repertoire!  Increased ginger to 2 tablespoons after reading comments, and they were just perfect! They do go crunchy when they cool down (although not many survived that long!), but not as rock hard as some commercial ones I've had. 

    Winner!

  • I replaced 50g of the flour

    Submitted by Mrs_Squibble on 5. April 2015 - 14:27.

    I replaced 50g of the flour with buckwheat and added 1tsp of cinnamon and 1/2 tsp of cardamom as well. I didn't have golden syrup so used honey instead, and didnt bother with the pre-mixing of flour and spices, juust threw everything in together at the end. They were awesome! Next time I would reduce the sugar just a bit though as they were a little too sweet for my liking. Thanks for the great recipe.

    Whoops I only put in 1tsp ginger, oh well guess I'll have to munch these down and make another batch! They are super yummy though, even without the right amount of ginger. Plus, my toddler enoyed making some shapes as the consistency was so playdough like!!

    Made them for the 1st time last night - excellent. I did take note of the comments and used 11/2 tsp ginger. I think it would still be great with 1 tsp (as per the recipe). Cheers
