Biscuits Without Guilt

Biscuits can be such a fun part of life. When a friend comes around it’s great to lay out a plate of biscuits to nibble on as you chew over life’s latest. Equally, there’s nothing so pleasurable as sitting yourself down for a moment of quiet reflection with a hot drink and nice biscuit to go with it. The problem is these treasured life moments can be laced with guilt because of all the sugar. To help ease that burden we’ve put together some gorgeous biscuit recipes that use wholefood sweeteners that are easier on your body, such as maple syrup and coconut sugar. These biscuits also use healthy ingredients and may not be totally innocent, but you can relax and enjoy them knowing they aren’t as naughty as they might be, and they taste great. Try cooking up a batch of Spelt & Star Anise Biscuits; Medicinal Ginger Cookies; Banana & Chocolate Fudge Cookies; Tahini & Almond Cookies; Royal Sandwich Biscuits; Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Biscuits; or Cranberry & Oat Cookies.
