Earlier in the week I took some biscuits I'd made to a picnic and they went down a storm. Why were they so popular? Because they were dairy free, gluten free AND refined sugar free. That's practically healthy right?
I found the recipe from Daisy Lowe's new cookbook, Sweetness & Light. A book dedicated to baking healthy cakes and desserts.
200g ground almonds
1tsp gluten free baking powder
pinch sea salt
4 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp organic maple syrup
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp lemon zest
Preheat the oven to 180C and line two trays with baking parchment. In a large bowl mix together the almonds, baking powder and salt. Then add the coconut oil, maple syrup, lemon juice and zest.
Use the palm of your hand to flatten the biscuits out and bake for 10-15 mins until golden brown. Leave to cool before indulging!
