Good Afternoon friends! I hope this finds you all well. This recipe was inspired by and therefore created especially for my second daughter, Miss ‘almost’ 16, who is completely obsessed with Porridge for breakfast at the moment – she tops her porridge with a gorgeous selection of seeds etc and tops with a dollop of almond butter – it always looks so delicious! Not long ago I had a moment of ‘I wonder if I could turn those ingredients into a biscuit for her’ – and after a bit of experimenting, here we are. They were loved by my entire family and will certainly become a regular here for breakfast (especially great for breakfast on the run), morning or afternoon tea snack and with all these wonderful ingredients, they make a great pre and post workout snack. I hope you love them as much as my family does – as always, I would love to hear from you when you make them!
