Lemon biscuits

A lot of nut biscuits have a very similar taste and whilst the kids don't complain, I get bored.  Other biscuit recipes whilst tolerated by my children are a bit 'too alternative' for friend's kids.   However these taste like a traditional biscuit and the lemon really lifts the flavour.

This recipe makes about 24 biscuits.  I double or even quadruple the ingredients and then store the dough in plastic bags in the freezer.  It is a time saver and means I only have to clean the dreaded Magimix once.  


225g almond flour 
1/8 tsp of bicarbonate of soda
4 tbsp / 60 grams of melted butter or coconut oil 
105g honey
1 tbsp of lemon zest (use an unwaxed lemon) 
1 tbsp of lemon juice
Approx 50 grams of sultanas (we like lots in our biscuits!) Could substitute with raisins or leave out

  • Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 4/180C.  You can melt your oil or butter in an ovenproof dish whilst oven warming
  • Mix ingredients in a bowl or a food processor until you have a dough consistency (will be moist)
  • Make small balls of dough in your hands and then flatten into rough cookie shapes 
  • Place on a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper
