Mango and Oat Cookies

Sometimes it is a struggle to find suitable snacks for the kids lunchboxes. Providing them with a range of food that is nutritious and that they will happily eat can be challenging. I have recently discovered Nibblish dried mango, strawberries and pineapple which are delicious. They contain no added sugar or sulphites and are gluten free. It makes for a nice change from the sultanas I usually put in the kids lunchboxes. These cookies are a treat for the kiddos afternoon tea. The mango works well with the white chocolate drops, oats and coconut to make one tasty little cookie.
