My gorgeous gal, Kathryn is back on the blog! Kat sent this to me at Christmas time, but I totally forgot to post this gem of a recipe. Here it is!
And so the Christmas Baking Without Wheat continues – this time with a batch of cinnamon almond butter biscuits! These are delicious little morsels from Quirky Cooking which you can easily follow on Facebook for lots of delicious food ideas!
The recipe is as follows.
300g ground almonds
4 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
50g honey or enough to taste
100g melted butter or coconut oil
Step 1: If your almonds are whole – grind them up in a high speed food processor. It is actually a lot more economical to buy your almonds whole and raw and then grind them yourself into almond meal!
Step 2: Combine all the dry ingredients in a food processor. Add the melted butter, honey and eggs. Blend for about a minute until it resembles a sticky dough.
Step 3: Place teaspoon size balls on a lined baking tray (you can roll them in your hands and press down with a fork, or keep it rustic!) and bake for 10-12 minutes at 180°C.
Step 4: Keep them in the fridge in summer time as they don’t contain any preservatives (this is a good thing!).
Optional extra: For a more Christmas-y touch play around with the spices! Ground ginger, mixed spice & nutmeg would be delicious.
Perfect for a little morning tea treat.
