New & improved Chia seed ‘Jammy dodgers’

IMG_4426.jpg

I made ‘jammy dodgers’ a while ago and posted the recipe, however with it being jam season again and i’ve picked more blackberries I wanted to improve the recipe to make even better biscuits this time around!

Also, if you are a huge lover of The Great British Bake Off, like me then you will understand the sweet cravings I get every Wednesday night!

Ingredients

For the Jam

  • 35g of blackberries
  • 2 tbsp of Creative nature chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp of agave/maple syrup

For the biscuitsΒ 

  • 80g fine oats
  • 150 g ground almonds
  • 200g of coconut flour/buckwheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp of ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp of nutmeg
  • 125ml of coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tbsp of agave/honey
  • 1tsp of vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt

Method

For the jam

  1. Wash the berries and place in a medium saucepan with 2 tbsp of water
  2. Bring to the boil, the reduce the heat to a simmer.
  3. Roughly mash the berries, add the agave and chia seeds then simmer.
  4. Continue to stir the jam, to prevent it sticking to the bottom of the pan
  5. Remove from the heat and allow the jam to cool before serving.

For the biscuitsΒ 

  1. Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees and line two baking trays with greaseproof paper. Alternatively flour the trays to prevent sticking.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the dry ingredients.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until a dough forms.
  4. Flour a clean surface and roll out the dough until thin.
  5. Use a cookie cutter, (or a clean glass if you don’t have one) to cut out circles, re-rolling if needed.
  6. Use a smaller cutter to cut out the circles in the middle, do this on half of your circles.
  7. Place all biscuits on your baking trays and into the oven for 12 minutes or until golden.
  8. Allow the biscuits to cool, then sandwich them together with a tsp of jam.
