Coconut Banana Biscuits
When I tasted these biscuits the first thought I had was Is there such a thing as a Cake Biscuit? The texture of these biscuits is like a muffin, they are moist and super moreish. When you are not sure of something of course turn to the big G and look it up. Well, it seems that lots of people have beat me to cake biscuits! There are many cake recipes that come up in the search, cakes filled with crumbled biscuits and variations of the theme. Regardless, it was the flavour of these that won me.
I have been testing a Breville Kitchen Wizz 8 plus I was gifted the machine to create some new recipes that are suited to my new dietary restrictions. Unfortunately I burned out the spindle of my old food processor with over-use. This machine has 1000W and a stainless steel reinforced spindle to give it plenty of power. This machine will create nut butter in just a few minutes. I am yet to test the other blades it comes with but am looking forward to making my own almond milk next. So far I am really impressed and enjoying getting to know this machine.
The Kitchen Wizz 8 plus made this recipe super quick to prepare. I made them and baked them in less than 15 minutes before running out the door to a meeting. It was as simple as combining the ingredients for a minute and then scooping out the mix onto a baking tray.
I am constantly trying to think of new ways I can create something tasty to eat that fits within the SIBO diet guidelines. These biscuits are grain free, egg free and dairy free. I added some honey along with the banana to provide some sweetness in the hope of tempting my 8 year old to try them. I hope you give them a try.
This is my recipe for Coconut Banana Biscuits, that are kind of like a little banana cake.
- ½ cup almond meal
- ¼ cup coconut flour
- 1 banana
- 1 and ½ tablespoons nut butter of choice (* see notes)
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil - melted
- 2 tablespoons dessicated coconut (plus extra teaspoon to add to cooked biscuits)
- 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 teaspoon raw honey
- 2 teaspoon cacao powder
- Heat the oven to 170 degrees celcius
- Add the quad blade to the bowl of the food processor
- Add all of the ingredients to the bowl
- Place the lid in place and lock into place
- Turn to Low and mix until all of the ingredients have combined. Don't over process
- Remove the lid and the blade
- Scoop out the mixture, roll into even sized balls
- Add each of the balls to a baking tray and push down with a fork to flatten
- Place into the oven to cook for 12 minutes, until golden in colour
- Remove from the oven and cool
- Store in an airtight container and eat within 3 days.
