And I am so glad I did - they are divine. And the chocolate on top just makes it for me. I mean, plain would be lovely too but that dark chocolate hit just gives you complete oaty, rich and decadent treat with your cup of tea.
Fancy giving them a go? I can confirm that they do taste a lot better than the shop bought version. But as always, anything homemade beats a mass manufactured product any day in my books.
