Nutty Treat

A biscuit is a good biscuit when you want to eat another one every time you finish one. Or are they maybe not so good then? Perspective! These Nutty Treat almond biscuits are delicious and I’m sure you can’t just only eat one. Are you having people coming over for tea or do you need some good biscuits for a high tea? These are your biscuits! Also good as a snack or to share with your friends or colleagues (..make sure you have the recipe by hand, because people will ask for it!). They are super addictive and so it’s a good thing they’re made with only good ingredients. So having a second one isn’t a problem. Yay! They’re not hard to make, especially when you have a food processor. So don’t waste any more time.

NUTTY TREAT

Serves: 12

1 cup spelt flower
1 cup ground almonds
1 cup palm sugar
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbs water
pinch of salt
12-24 whole almonds

baking tray
baking paper

-Preheat the oven to 180C.
-Put all the ingredients, except for the whole almonds, in the food processor and mix until you have a sticky dough.
-Roll it into a cylinder shape (diameter: about 8 cm) and put it in the fridge for 1 hour. If the dough is too soft, then put it in the fridge for a bit, to make it more firm.
-Slice the roll into 1 cm thick biscuits and put them on the baking tray (covered with baking paper).
-Lightly push 1-2 almond (s) into every biscuit.
-Put them in the oven for about 16-18 minutes, until golden brown.
-Let them cool down before eating.

Biscuit Feast #2

img_6795You might have notices that if I use berries in my recipes, it’s most of the time blueberries. I love blueberries. The consistency, the taste, the colour and you can make so many things with them. What is not to like?! Today I used them in the Biscuit Feast recipe. It’s the second Biscuit feast recipe. The last one had 2 varieties: ‘Raise your hand for Raisins’ and ‘Nuts for Coconut’. They were both super healthy. Today’s one is healthy too, but then without the white chocolate. You can easily decide not to add the chocolate, they will still be super tasty! They’re amazing with a nice cup of tea, but you can also have them for breakfast (ok, I’d recommend making them without the chocolate in this case..). One thing is for sure, when you’re feeling blue, I’m sure these will quickly cheer you up. Enjoy!

ChOCO Dream

13499852_1178672795510155_944827911_oFor this recipe I was inspired by a Dutch cake, called ‘Arretjescake’. It’s actually with eggs and a lot of butter. It’s a very unhealthy cake, but super delicious. The recipe I made is not only vegan and super delicious, it’s also healthy. Or actually there is an option to make it all healthy. There are biscuits used in this cake. If you decide to make healthy biscuits before making this recipe, the whole cake would be healthy. The cake is very filling, that’s why it’s quite small. In case you have to treat a lot of people, you can always easily double the recipe. Use a little cake tin or any small dish, but if you double it, you can easily use a standard cake tin.
One of my aunts always made this recipe and whenever there was a party at her house, I always chose this cake. I could really get excited if I knew she made one. I hope you get just as excited after tasting it. It’s super easy, fast and does not require any baking. Everybody can make this!

Biscuit Feast

13446222_1169109249799843_707711809_oThis is probably the easiest recipe there is. You only need 2 ingredients to have something very yummy. It also doesn’t take a lot or preparation, you probably always have these ingredients anyway, it doesn’t take long before you can enjoy and it’s easy to share. So many reasons to just try this!

These biscuits are amazing, because it’s a guilt free snack and you could even have them for breakfast if you please. Perfect for on the way, but also at home. I once had them with warm almond milk. Yum!
The only thing you need are ripe bananas and oats. Though this is the basic recipe, you can add a lot to it and give it your own personal little twist. I will give you 2 options today and maybe, if you guys like this, I can give you a different version every now and then. Or maybe you have requests? Let me know!
