Bill's recipe are always so good and this is no exception. I have varied the recipe slightly to include figs & LSA mix and it works beautifully

I took out the fruit (alas, fructose malabsorption) and added pecans, walnuts and a teaspoon of vanilla paste instead of honey...Mmm yummy! Even worked with gluten free flour - lovely and moist - hoorah!
