Even though this is not something I would usually bake, I still thought I would enjoy these since I love muesli (our version of granola?). And I was right! They are really yummy- a great snack. I was positive that S wouldn't like these but I was wrong- he actually really enjoyed them (eating three in a row). Seeing as there is only one egg in the recipe, I thought halving it would be too hard so I made the whole batch, which is far too many biscuits for us! When we found out the recipes, I told my friend D Dogg (there's a story behind that name...) that I would give him some, but he turned his nose up at that idea. Oh well... I think I'll force him to take some when I see him tomorrow. I did take a couple to give my Grandad this morning but he announced to me that he didn't really like it and that his wife would much prefer it (he has dementia so I forgive him!).
After reading some people's ideas, I added some choc chips on top of a few of the biscuits, but I wasn't a massive fan. We love chocolate, but thought it detracted from the other ingredients, which were delicious by themselves. I couldn't find (or didn't know what it was) wheat germ so I added semolina instead. Seemed to work fine.
Maybe I made my biscuits too big but I certainly didn't get 40 like Dorie suggests. I think I got about 25 or so. I imagine they would last longer than the 3 days Dorie suggests too.
