Super tasty lunchbox biscuits

I was sceptical the first time the children and I made these together, but once we’d tasted the batter, smelt them cooking in the oven, then ate them warm we were convinced. These are super tasty and belong in a lunchbox. This recipe is based on Dreena Burton’s troll biscuit recipe. I’ve just simplified the recipe.
