Almond Biscuits with Chocolate

These little bikkies were fantastic with coffee and the kids also enjoyed their chewy texture and chocolate topping.  I used 85% Lindt chocolate melted and drizzled over the top, but you could easily leave them plain.

The recipe is from Wholefoods Simply and it’s very simple.

1/2 cup coconut flour (I didn’t bother sifting it)

1/2 cup almond meal

3 tablespoons of almond butter (I made this in the thermomix – grab a couple of handfuls of almonds and whizz them until they turn into butter.  seriously, that’s it)

1 egg.

Preheat oven to 175/350F and line a tray with baking paper

Place flour into a bowl and add eggs and mix to combine (TMX, speed 5 for 5 seconds should do it)

Add almond butter and honey and mix again (TMX speed 5 for 5 seconds)

roll it into a ball using your hands and put into the freezer for 5 minutes

roll it flat between baking paper and cut into shapes.

Cook for 8-10 minutes until golden.

Once cool, drizzle with melted chocolate.  I put half a block of 85% lindt in a ziplock bag and melted it in the varoma while cooking risotto for the Arancini balls.  I cut open one of the corners and used the ziplock back to drizzle the chocolate over the biscuits.

Perfection.
