Recipe Notes

Check that your baking powder is gluten free if you wish to ensure that this recipe is gluten free
*Use a thin edged spatula to remove them gently one at a time from the board they were rolled on. This ensures that they do not break when you pick them up, or stick to the base of the board.
The quantity of biscuits will vary depending on the size and shape that you cut them.
Quinoa flakes are a little like oats in texture and are available from some supermarkets in the organic section, or from healthy food stores or good delis.
