but also incredibly easy to make. These biscuits are perfect for a cozy afternoon tea or as a sweet end to any meal.

Ingredients:

2 cups of almond flour

1/2 teaspoon of baking soda

A pinch of salt

Zest of one large lemon

2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice

1/3 cup of honey or maple syrup

1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract

2 tablespoons of melted coconut oil

1 large egg

Instructions:

Preheat and Prepare: Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper to keep things non-stick without any fuss.

Mix Dry Ingredients: In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond flour, baking soda, and a pinch of salt. The almond flour is a fantastic gluten-free alternative that gives these biscuits a wonderfully tender crumb.

Add Zest and Wet Ingredients: To the dry mix, add the zest of one lemon for that irresistible citrus aroma. In a separate bowl, combine the lemon juice, honey (or maple syrup if you prefer), vanilla extract, melted coconut oil, and the egg. Whisk these together until you have a smooth mixture.

Combine Everything: Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until you form a nice, consistent dough. The dough will be slightly sticky, but that’s exactly what you want.

Shape the Biscuits: Scoop tablespoons of the dough onto your prepared baking sheet. You can use the back of your spoon to gently flatten each biscuit into a neat circle.

Bake to Perfection: Slide your tray into the oven and bake for about 8-10 minutes, or until the edges are just turning golden. The key is to watch them because nobody likes an overcooked biscuit!

Cool and Enjoy: Let the biscuits cool on the tray for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack. This will help them set without losing any of their delightful textures.

There you have it! Your very own batch of homemade lemon biscuits that are not just tasty but also kind to your body. They’re perfect with a cup of tea or just by themselves when you need a little pick-me-up. Enjoy the lightness and the guilt-free pleasure these biscuits bring to your day!
