I make these weekly, try to limit myself to two per day, one with coffee in a morning and one with a cup of tea when the children get in from school.

Biscuits and cookies, some homemade versions of classic favourites
Coconut Macaroons – low carb, low sugar
I love coconut, good job as it’s a fantastic ingredient to use for making low carb and sugar free recipes. This one has the additional of chocolate chips (ups the carb and sugar rating though)
These are great for lunch boxes and to keep the kids going for extra curricular sports. Add the acai and maca powder for extra nutrients as they are classed as a superfood.
Healthy Oat and Choc Chip Cookies
Healthy as they have no sugar and include bananas, oats, pumpkin seeds and brazil nuts, oh and chocolate chips too.
Ginger Snaps with spelt flour
One of my favourite classic English biscuits, ideal for dunking into tea or coffee and super quick and easy to make.
A little like a Fruit Shortcake biscuit but made with orange zest to add more flavour. Always use currants as raisins are too big. Any shape cookie cutter will do but try not to make it too fancy as it will be difficult to cut out the dough with the currants in. Lovely served with…
A classic English biscuit, different to gingerbread as these have a ‘crackle’ effect when baked and are essential to dunk into a cup of tea
Bourbon biscuits are a classic English chocolate biscuit, sandwiched together with a chocolate cream, delicious with a cup of tea
This is a homemade version of the classic Jaffa Cake biscuit using old fashioned sponge drops made with the whisking method. Sponge Drops are the English version of a whoopie pie. Begin the day before as you’ll need time for the jelly to set.
These classic German gingerbread biscuits are super easy to make and delicious, great for sharing or giving as gifts at Christmas.
