Susan Hart: I first posted this recipe early last year but recently a reader, Jocelyn asked if I’d re-post.  She said, ‘It’s a great recipe and my daughter and I use it a lot. We haven’t made them for a while and can never remember the amounts of the ingredients. It would be great to get the recipe back!’

 

So this is for you Jocelyn and all those who like a healthy treat.

These make an ideal afternoon treat, when the 3pm energy slump hits and you can feel your blood sugar levels dropping, as well as your resolve not to eat that chocolate bar!
