Eat real biscuits

 Who would not love a biscuit to dunk in their tea?

Who would not love a biscuit to dunk in their tea?

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....

LIFESAVER BISCUITS

Ingredients

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. 

YUM!
