I’m just baking up a big batch of these for the Xmas fayre tomorrow 🙂
These biscuits are a great christmas treat and can even be hung on the tree. They’re simple and easy to make – perfect for making with the kids!
4 oz Buckwheat flour
2 oz ground Almonds
5 tbsp Agave nectar
Up to 6 tbsp Water
1 tsp ground Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Allspice
1/4 tsp ground Nutmeg
Pinch ground Cloves
Small amount of Coconut palm sugar or unrefined Raw sugar to sprinkle on the biscuits before baking
Preheat oven to 180 C. Add the flour, almonds, spices and agave to a food processor. Pulse and gradually add the water until it forms a firm dough. Adjust spices to taste if necessary. Once it forms a dough remove, wrap in cling-film and place in the fridge for 30 mins to chill.
Roll out on a floured surface and use biscuit cutters to cut out. If you are hanging them on the tree then use a sharp knife to cut a small hole near the top of the biscuits to thread a ribbon through later.
Place on a baking tray and bake, sprinkle with a little sugar and cinnamon and bake for 10 – 15 mins or until very brown. Remove and cool on a wire rack.
Thread ribbon through the hole and hang on your tree! 🙂
