Want a healthier biscuit to dunk in your tea? 🙋♀️ 🙋
Hello perfectly gooey but crunchy cookies! This delicious homemade biscuit recipe is dairy free and refined sugar free.
Benefits of these homemade cookies over shop bought biscuits?
The mood-altering properties of raw cacao are well recognised (thank you polyphenols, serotonin, phenylethylalanine and theobromine) and 85% dark chocolate improves mood in association with gut bacterial changes, yippee!
Coconut sugar has a much lower impact on blood sugar than castor sugar which means it won't mess with your energy or drive you bonkers with cravings. It also adds a caramelly flavour which is simply devine. 👌I've written more about how sugar impacts mood and anxiety here. And if you'd like to know which sugar is best for gut health check out my earlier blog post here.
These biscuits will satisfy your sweet craving without ingesting tons of hydrogenized fats (the worst kind of fat) and refined sugar which is what you get in shop bought biscuits.
What you'll need:
100g plain flour
85g coconut sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
25g coconut oil, melted
35g oat milk (I find barista milk works best)
20g raw cacao nibs
4 squares Lindt 85% dark chocolate, broken into pieces
2 pinches of coarse sea salt
