This recipe has given the original almond biscuit, usually made with butter and sugar, a health makeover. Now gluten, dairy and refined sugar free I am delighted when my son tucks into these. There is no compromise here – the texture is perfect, firm on the outside and soft and chewy in the middle, with a hint of sweetness.
As for making homemade biscuits it doesn’t get much easier than this. Everything goes into one mixing bowl and there are just a handful of everyday ingredients with almonds being the star of the show. Almonds are a good source of minerals such as zinc, magnesium and potassium. They are very rich in vitamin E, which supports the brain, the cardiovascular and respiratory systems and helps keep skin healthy and bones strong.
