I’ve always loved baking and now really enjoy the challenge of making cakes, biscuits & desserts that are much healthier than their traditional or processed alternatives. I haven’t, however, had a lot of success with making biscuits that I am happy with.
It took a few sessions to get this one right, but I’m pretty happy with the result. Instead of butter it has tahini which is good for boosting your protein and antioxidant intake as well as bumping up your iron and zinc status. Pistachios are also a great source of antiflammatory antioxidants as well as lutein and zeaxanthin which are essential for good eye health. It’s always good to be able to see what you’re eating!
