Whole Grain Goodness

Ingredients

  • 450g wholemeal flour
  • 225g almonds, chopped and toasted
  • 50g hazelnuts, chopped and toasted
  • 225g sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate soda
  • Grated rind of one orange
  • Grated rind of one lemon
  • 125ml rapeseed oil
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 4 egg whites, stiffly beaten

Method

  1. Combine the wholemeal flour, nuts, sugar, salt and bicarbonate of soda in a bowl with grated orange and lemon rind.
  2. Add the rapeseed oil, the egg yolks and the stiffly beaten egg whites to the flour mixture. Mix lightly.
  3. Divide the dough into four pieces and shape each into a barrel/log shape.
  4. Place the rolls on a greased baking sheet.
  5. Bake in the oven at 200°C/400°F for about 15 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
  7. Cut the slightly cooled biscuits into thin diagonal slices about 1cm thick.
  8. Replace the biscuits, upright on the baking tin, leaving a little space between them so that the heat from the oven dries the biscuits.
  9. Return to an oven of 140°C for a further 20-30 minutes.
  10. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.

Cooking Tips

  • These biscuits are particularly good with tea or coffee.
