‘Healthy’ Orange, Date and Walnut Biscuits

As a continuation of my ‘less refined sugar health kick’, this week I have some ‘healthy’ orange, date and walnut biscuits to offer you. And yes, I did mainly use this recipe as a way of using up the massive pot of Stevia I now have in my larder after making my rhubarb, spelt and pecan crumble for my last post.

Being a baking blog I feel it is only right that I pay homage at least once over the next 10 or so weeks to the Great British Bake Off. For the last couple of years I have tried, and failed, to follow it. Since I fully expect to fail again this year even with my blog I have decided to have a go at the odd challenge and see how I get on. In these previous attempts I have also been faced with a varying degree of success. I have definitely had some pretty good bakes that would have seen me through on some occasions, but I have also had some that would have left me a long, long way from the Hollywood handshake. Unfortunately, this may have been one of those weeks. Continue reading “Lemon and Aronia Berry Iced Biscuits”
