Healthier chocolate biscuits

These are based on a Waitrose recipe. I’ve made it healthier by reducing the sugar content so they can be enjoyed guilt free! They are gluten free as they use ground almonds and oat flour - also great as there is no real flour in the shops at the moment! They can easily be made dairy free by using coconut oil and an alternative milk. ⁣
