    I really love these. I've made them a few times with cranberries and dates and another time with sultanas. Yum! I also sub the all spice for mixed spice.

    Great to have something that's not a muffin. So good.

    Great recipe and really easy. Thanks for sharing. I doubled the quantity for a class treat. I must say I only used 1 table spoon of mixture per cookie though and they looked about the size you posted in yours. and I got the right number of servies. Thanks again.

    Glad you enjoyed with sultanas, that's actually the original recipe I have had for 30 years, I just thought I would adapt it with the dates & cranberries as they can be chopped so easily in the Thermomix. The lemon zest is a new addition too. Happy cooking, feel free to try my other recipes too... Thanks for The comment, can you please add stars too? Cheers..

    Thanks so much for the rating, glad you liked them.

    I think they would freeze okay, perhaps wrap them individually first so they dont get stuck together and become difficult to separate, then that way they wil be easy to just grab from the freezer ready to go straight into the lunch box.

    Your kids might enjoy my beef & veg bolognese recipe, that's if they like slightly chunky veggies in food. I'm afraid my kids ate everything (no choice..hehe) so they liked this recipe.

    Thanks again, happy cooking....   Cooking 6
