G I N G E R N U T biscuit

Well, the weather must have forgotten it's summer as it's been raining a lot in London today... School is nearly out and the kids schedules are more relaxed so we had extra time for baking after pick up.
I wanted to make something that would give us much needed warmth.
This recipe comes from the food programme 'Eating Well' by Hemsley sisters. What I absolutely love about it, is that it's very easy to make and packed with goodness! Gluten free and with no refined sugar added, just natural ingredients and beautiful aroma. It will hit you with spice and warmth from the first bite.

Prep time 5 minutes, baking 12 minutes

Here's what you need:
250g of ground almonds
3 tablespoons of ground ginger
teaspoon of baking soda
4 tablespoons of date syrup or maple syrup
unwaxed lemon zest
pinch of salt

Here's what to do:
Pre-heat the oven to 160 degrees. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
Put all the ingredients into a food processor or kitchen mixer, blend until all is combined, it will now resemble breadcrumbs. Stop mixing and pour the ginger crumbs onto your baking tray and now shape with your hands to form a large ball. Once done divide into two smaller balls. On your baking tray start shaping your biscuits (roughly two tablespoons worth of the mix) shape into a round blob then flatten gently with your fingers. You should get more or less 12 biscuits. Bake on the middle tray for 12 minutes. Cool on the cooling rack. Make a nice cup of tea, grab a biscuit and enjoy a warm kick of the ginger spice - just like a summery hug on the beach, it is SUMMER after all!!
