Cooking with Kids?

This is a great recipe to make with children. Get them to help with the weighing and measuring. Kids love to help mixing up the cookie dough too. Just ensure caution is taken when placing in and taking out of the oven.

Is it Vegan?

This recipe is suitable for people following a gluten free diet and vegetarians. The recipe could be adapted for a vegan diet, by substituting the margarine for vegan margarine.

The replacing the eggs with either a flax seed egg or peanut butter could work too. I have a great egg replacement guide here.

You could also replace the M&M’s for vegan chocolate drops as I’ve yet to find a good replacement that is both gluten free and vegan.

Do I need any specialist equipment?

This recipe is made using cup measures which are more commonly used in American recipes. You can pick them up easily from cookware shops or amazon.
