    I put the chocolate chips in the food processor at the beginning because I hadn’t read the recipe properly- I’m glad I did!
    I got 19 bites – probably made them a little bit big.
    it would be nice to know the calorie and fat content per portion.

    Haha! I agree – I cook as well and can figure it out most of the time for the non-cookers proof reading would help!! 🙂
