WHAT YOU WILL NEED
Makes 20 Biscuits
1 tablespoon of cumin seeds
120 gm ghee, warmed and in liquid form
1/2 cup coconut sugar or jaggery
1/2 teaspoon organic vanilla essence
1 tablespoon of flaxseed or LSA meal and 3 tablespoons water (combine in a small container and mix until gelatinous in consistency, this is an egg alternative).
2 cups plain wholemeal flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon almond or coconut milk
A good pinch of Pink Himalayan Rock Salt
Turn the oven on to 180 degrees Celsius.
Get a medium sized frying pan and place on a medium heat on the stove. Add the cumin seeds and while stirring or tossing intermittently, allow the seeds to dry roast for 2-3 minutes or until fragrant. Be careful not to burn them. Take off the heat and set aside.
In a food processor of your choice, add the ghee, sugar, flaxseed mix and vanilla essence. Blend on low for a few seconds until well combined. Scrape down the sides with a spatula if required.
Add the flour, baking powder, milk and salt with the cumin seeds to the food processor and blend to combine well.
On a lined baking tray, take 1 tablespoon of the biscuit mix, roll into balls and then flatten slightly with a spoon or your hand.
Put in the oven for 15-20 minutes until the biscuits are golden brown.
Allow to completely cool before eating, enjoy!
With love and light,
