Makes about 30 – depending on cutter size


8oz wholemeal flour

5 oz goats butter or marg/butter of your choice

2 oz coconut sugar

1 Place flour and butter into an electric mixer, blend until fine bread crumb texture

2 Pour the sugar and ground almonds into the mixture and blend together

3 Transfer the mixture into a large mixing bowl

4 Add the beaten egg to the mixture and combine into a firm sticky dough

6 Place in a plastic bag or completely cover with cling film and leave in the fridge for half an hour

7 Place the chilled dough ball onto a floured surface and roll out thinly – about ¼ inch

8 Using a 3” cutter cut out the biscuits and place on a baking tray – prick the biscuits with a fork or cake taster
