Ingredients:

Makes 14 biscuits.

  • 200 g almonds
  • 100 g cashews
  • 70 g honey (about 3 tablespoons)
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 egg
  • 60 g coconut oil

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  2. Place the almonds and cashews in a food processor and mix on high speed until the nuts have a fine, mealy texture, about 10 seconds.
  3. Add the honey and coconut oil to the food processor. Blend on low speed until the ingredients stick together, about 2 minutes.
  4. Add the egg, cinnamon and vanilla. Blend for a further 20 seconds on low speed. The ingredients should form a thick, cookie-like dough when you have finished.
  5. Remove spoonfuls of the dough, roll into balls and flatten slightly.
  6. Place the balls on baking paper on an oven tray and bake for about 10 minutes.

Tips:

  • These biscuits are a great healthy alternative to commercial biscuits, to treat your children. But remember, they’re still a treat that your child should eat once in a while.³
  • Before packing a special treat for your children, remember that some schools and other places may not allow nut products onto their grounds.
