These crunchy bikkies are delicious – not only are they citrusy, but they're nutty too. They're absolutely perfect when paired with an afternoon cuppa.
80 g wholemeal self-raising flour
40 g plain flour
45 g rice flour
1 tsp finely ground ginger
60 g walnuts finely chopped
finely grated zest 1 orange
80 ml honey
40 g light margarine melted
60 ml fresh orange juice
- Combine the flours, ginger and 50g of the chopped walnuts in a medium bowl. Stir in the orange zest. Add the honey, margarine and orange juice and stir until well combined. Cover and set aside for 30 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 170°C (fanforced). Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Shape heaped teaspoonfuls of the mixture into small balls. Place balls on trays and press down slightly with your fingers. Sprinkle a little of the reserved walnuts over each.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes or until biscuits are just cooked. Set aside on the trays for 5 minutes, before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
