Anise Biscuits

Anise Biscuits

A family biscuit recipe with a crispy texture forming the outside. It is one of my best treats with a cup of tea for the afternoon.

Serves:  34- 36 biscuits

Dietary: Vegetarian 

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 30- 35 minutes

 

Ingredients

1 cup of wholegrain flour
1 cup of plain flour
3 Tbsp coconut sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbsp yoghurt
2 tsp anise
4 eggs
1/4 cup of vegetable oil
1 tsp vinegar

 

Method

  1.  Preheat the oven to 160 – 180ºC.
  2.  Whisk the eggs, vanilla extract, coconut sugar, yoghurt and vinegar until a creamy texture.
  3.  Then add the oil and continue mixing.
  4.  Add the flour, anise and baking powder gradually into the creamy mixture.  Mix together.
  5.  Pour the batter into a baking tray or loaf pan.
  6.  Bake in the lower tray at 160 – 180oC for around 20 – 25 minutes.
  7.  Leave it to cool, cut it into slices and place it flat side down again on the baking tray to toast in the oven for extra 5 – 7 minutes, depending on your oven heat and your personal preferences in terms of the toasting level.
  8.  Leave it to cool down.  Now you can enjoy it with a cup of tea.
