Healthy Jammie Dodgers! Jammie Dodgers were one of my favourites as a kid and I can safely say that these do not disappoint! I’m loving this recipe at the moment! So quick and easy! If you don’t have time to make the jam in advance they are also great with a dollop of dark chocolate in the centre! This recipe is gluten free, dairy free, vegan and paleo.
