What's great about it

These delicious cookies are from my Recipe App. Speculoos are a traditional European biscuits that are scented with cinnamon, ginger and vanilla. They taste just like Christmas and perfect served on their own, made into gingerbread or drizzled with chocolate just like in the picture. Made from wholesome rolled oats, wholemeal spelt flour, butter, vanilla and just a little coconut sugar to sweeten. Enjoy.
