I made these cookies with no coco powder and did them plain with almonds on top and I used gluten free self raising flour but they expanded way to much so if u r doing it with gluten free self raising flour then do not add baking powder

I made these but instead of a tablespoon of water & cocoa I added a tablespoon of Nutella which gave them a lovely soft chewy texture like cookies with a hint of nut yum.

I made these with my sister, who has a ongoing phobia of eggs after she was attacked by a chicken and now just can’t eat them. The cookies were amazing and tasted great especially with chocolate chips and sprinkles. The only negative thing I have to say about this is it didn’t specify how much chocolate chips we had to weigh out so in the end we just eyeballed it. But it didn’t take to long and the kitchen was still clean afterwards.

Made these today, took 26 minutes to cook, not 12 . Not only that but they taste extremely bland almost as if if eating flour and nothing else. My problem is I followed the recipe exactly so i am unsure how it happened

These were lovely, and certainly didn't taste like a poor equivalent for "normal" baking (I made chocolate ones with choc chips and didn't use cookie cutters, just flattened some golf ball shapes). I would recommend adding the cocoa with the dry ingredients though, as it was hard to get the colour to spread evenly later on. I'd also use an electric whisk next time, especially if I was doing double quantities. There will definitely be a next time :-)

I tried this recipe with my son with added coconut and raisins- amazing! The cocoa powder really works well with them. A new recipe to add to our collection :)

I really loved these cookies! I was having a sugar craving at 10.30pm and didn't have any eggs. Found this recipe, popped it all together, got it wrong, even with only four ingredients - rookie mistake - and they still turned out great. I enjoyed them with a sprinkling of cinnamon on top.

My daughter, 13, just made these as a surprise for me (I'm allergic to egg) and I was so impressed with them and the lack of mess! They are light and soft but not brownie soft, not dry like a shortbread; if that makes sense. She said she cooked them for longer than the recipe, but that is more likely to be my oven. We all thoroughly enjoyed them and will definitely be making these again. Thank you for posting the recipe.
