Goji berry biscuits Serves 25
Incorporating goji berries into these biscuits gives them a good source of vitamins and minerals, including: Vitamin A, C, iron, fibre, zinc and antioxidants. They also contain all 8 essential amino acids, so for a fruit they pack a surprising amount of protein. The carbohydrates in goji berries are also complex carbs, meaning your blood sugar will raise slowly, reducing your risk of a sugar crash afterwards.
Paired with the Walnut, another powerhouse of nutrients, with the added benefits of polyphenols and healthy Omega 3 fats. These biscuits will give you great benefits whilst also indulging your sweet tooth!
- 85g butter.
- 1 egg.
- 1/3 cup sugar.
- 1 1/4 cup self raising flour.
- 1/3 cup walnuts, chopped.
- 1/3 cup goji berries.
- 1/2 tsp salt.
- 1 tsp vanilla.
- Pre heat oven to 180 C.
- Melt butter in a saucepan, then add sugar and stir to dissolve.
- Cool well. Mixture should be thick and creamy. It may seperate again, but this does not matter.
- Beat in egg, add remaining ingredients, stir to incorporate.
- Use a teaspoon to get a scoop and roll it into a ball, placing them onto greaseproof paper, keeping space in between each ball.
- Bake in oven for 15-20 mins, until golden brown.
- Wait for them to cool slightly before moving them onto a wire rack.
- Store in an air tight container for 5-7 days.
The longer you cook them the lighter and crunchier they will be. If you like your biscuit softer and chewier on the inside, 15 minutes will be sufficient cooking time.
