Guilt-Free Tea and Biccies!!

If someone doesn’t like biscuits, can you really even trust them?

NO!!!! Not if you’re British anyway!

 

We love a nice cuppa tea with a biccie don’t we?

 

Peter Kay has a great comedy sketch about biscuits and which ones are best for dipping…he voted for Hob Nobs… check him out here if you fancy a laugh –  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HwAYglwe3HU

Well, we were asked to create this very simple recipe when one of our clients requested a guilt-free biscuit she could eat so that she could enjoy her tea and biscuits without filling her body with rubbish!

 

So always up for a challenge, we’ve done it. Hurrah!

Guilt-Free Tea and Biccies!!

(Makes about 16 cookies)

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups finely ground almond flour (227 grams)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/3 cup dark date syrup or honey (100 grams)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • OPTIONAL – Add an egg white or 2 for to help it bond together
  • For a vegan alternative to eggs, we recommend using aquafaba. Aquafaba is the water that you find in a carton of chickpeas – a fancy name for chickpea juice! haha

METHOD 

  1. Adjust an oven rack to the middle position and heat the oven to 175°C  / 350°F.
  2. Line a rimmed baking tray with baking paper.
  3. Whisk the almond flour and baking powder together in a medium mixing bowl.
  4. Switch to a mixing spoon and stir in the maple syrup and vanilla.
  5. Stir until a sticky dough forms and holds together.
  6. Drop rounded tablespoons of the dough onto the prepared baking sheet, about one inch apart.
  7. For crisp cookies, press down the dough lightly with the flat bottom of a drinking glass or measuring cup. (If the glass sticks to the dough, dip the bottom in water.) For softer cookies, don’t press down the dough.
  8. Bake until the edges are golden brown, about 12 minutes.
  9. Allow the cookies to cool on the pan for about 3 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Cool baking sheet between batches.

Now you can ENJOY your tea and biscuits without any guilt what so ever!
