I love biscuits. So does my husband. And a biscuit - a REAL biscuit made out of REAL whole food ingredients - is good for the soul (that's what my husband says anyway).
Finding this biscuit recipe was a revelation; not only are they tasty, but they are also filling and full of nutty goodness (these are NOT however for anyone with a nut allergy - sorry!). They are so good, that I had to share the recipe... Enjoy :)
The original recipe is from nutritionist Nicola Moore (UK). I've altered the recipe to suit my moods; I've done them with different nuts or seed, altering the amount of cocoa or fat and using different amounts and kinds of sweeteners. I've yet to do a batch which was not delicious....
1 cup of almonds
½ cup of peacan nuts
½ cup of cashew nuts
3 tablespoons of ground linseeds
1 cup of buckwheat flour or gluten free flour
½ cup of maple syrup
¼ cup of water
2 large medjool dates (pitted)
3 tablespoons of cacao power
2 teaspoons of cacao nibs
2 tablespoons of coconut oil
Start by blending all of the nuts in a food processor until ground. Then simply add all of the other ingredients and blend everything together until it has formed a sticky dough.
Roll the dough into small’ish balls, then place on baking parchment and flatten into disks (biscuit size). Place on a baking tray and bake at 180 for around 20 minutes.
Enjoy with a regular cup of tea, or better still experiment with caffeine free alternatives like Red Bush (Rooibos) tea or chamomile tea.
Glory to the lady, from whose blog i found this recipe: www.nicola-moore.com/tea-and-biscuits
