Could I replace the oats with something? Almond meal? I know they would no longer be lunch box friendly!

Just made these. The ingredients were too crumbly to form into balls. I added 2 eggs and 1 tablespoon coconut oil just to get them to hold together. The taste was good, but still a little dry.

The mix did look a little dry so just added an extra tablespoon of Tahini and some extra honey, was considering using a spoon of coconut oil which I think would of worked just as good too.. This made the mix more easier to roll and stick.. the biscuit turned out great …. so yummy
