Many thanks to Julie202 for the info about making this recipe with Gluten Free flour. I'm not Coeliac, but friends & family are, so this information is very much appreciated.
Haven't made it yet, but tasted it today - a friend made it & told me it was the Donna Hay recipe, so I know it tastes great - will have a go at making it soon.

I have made these twice now. So quick and easy and made with ingredients that we always have handy. Put a couple of tablespoons of white choc chips in the 2nd batch at the kids request. Will be a regular treat at our place.
