Nordic Ginger Biscuits

These warmly spiced gingerbread biscuits are a treat for all the family. And with ground almonds, coconut oil and no refined sugar, they are also surprisingly virtuous.
Cooking time: 10 mins

INGREDIENTS

Serves 10 biscuits
  • 250 g ground almonds
  • 1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • ½ tsp ground cloves
  • ½ tsp ground cardamom
  • pinch of ground allspice
  • ½ tsp orange zest
  • 3 tbsp of coconut oil
  • 4 tbsp date or maple syrup
  • pinch of sea salt

Preheat oven to 180 C.

Mix all the ingredients together to form an even dough.

Roll out the dough with your fingers and use cookie cutters to cut your desired shapes. You want the biscuits to be quite thick so they remain moist.

Bake for 10 min until the edges are slightly brown and the centres remain soft. Remove from the oven and leave to cool.

The biscuits will harden. Enjoy!

Dust lightly with icing sugar if, like me, you can’t resist the Christmas look. If you want a healthier (less refined) version of icing sugar make your own by simply pouring coconut sugar into a blender until it is fine and fluffy.
