These biscuits taste great and are full of super foods
No slapped hands when the kids go near the biscuit jar, you can actively encourage it!
This was inspired by a deliciously Ella recipe, but adapted to take account of the blog comments to make it a more consistent and easier recipe
I don’t have a sweet tooth, but even I like these as they taste like dark chocolate!
- 1 cup of almonds
- 1 cup of walnuts
- 1 cup of buckwheat flour (I made my own by blending sprouted buckwheat till it formed a fine powder)
- 3 tbsp. date syrup (can use honey or pure maple syrup)
- 6-8 medjool dates
- 6 tbsp. water
- 3 tbsp. raw cacao powder
- 3 tbsp. chia seeds
- 2 tbsp. coconut oil
- You can use Quinoa flour or another gluten free flour instead of buckwheat
- You can interchange the natural sugar, the original recipe used maple I used date.
- I find it better to soak to chia seeds in water before using, the original recipe just added the chia and water separately
- You can interchange the nuts, I used walnuts and almonds but the recipe used hazelnuts and almonds
- Soak the chia seeds in the water for 10 minutes (this forms a natural glue, so you get a less crumbly biscuit dough)
- Place the sprouted buckwheat in a blender and blend until fine. If using gluten free flour just place this in the blender.
- Add the nuts to the blender and blend until fine
- Add all the remaining ingredients and blend until a sticky dough comes together
- Pre-heat the oven to 180c
- Scoop a tbsp. of the mixture into your (clean) hand and roll into a ball, then flatten this with your hands and place on a baking tray lined with grease proof paper (remember this will give you uneven biscuits so you need to remove them from the oven as soon as they start to brown)
- Keep doing this until you have finished the mixture
- Bake for 15-20 minutes at 180c until the cookies are slightly browned and firm
- Leave to cool
- Once cooled place in an airtight jar.
- These are full of super foods and healthy so you don’t have to keep them on a high shelf away from the kids, they can have as many as they want!
