These Gluten Free Almond Biscuits are packed with almond goodness and flavour, and are luckily, also very easy to make. But did you know that almonds, one of the more popular nuts around, are not actually nuts at all? The part that we eat is actually a seed, and almonds are technically stone fruits, like their close cousins, peaches and apricots.
Almonds are full of nutritional benefits, and ounce for ounce, provide more fibre and minerals than other tree nuts. They are also beneficial fo heart health and can help to reduce cholesterol levels and the risk of heart disease.
These cute little Gluten Free Almond Biscuits use only ground almonds and no wheat flour at all, so they are naturally gluten free, nicely dense and packed with protein and fibre, instead of 'empty calories'. How many biscuits can do that for you? They are a favourite with the family and one that I'm happy to allow the children to eat more of.
The fruity and nutty combination of these biscuits makes them an ideal winter festive treat, but I could definitely eat these all year round! They are perfect as a quick snack or for enjoying with your afternoon tea. And with only four ingredients and half an hour's time commitment, it really couldn't be easier.
