Have you been following the Nordic summer series with a selection of Scandinavian inspired recipes created by Peta Coote? Peta is a self confessed cat lady with a very positive outlook on life and a penchant for cups of tea who adores creating ‘free from’ recipes. She believes in finding the food that feels good for YOU, whether that’s a delicious fruity smoothie or chocolate ice-cream. Peta aims to inspire others to discover, eat and enjoy the food that makes them feel good, whatever that may be! I have been following Peta for a while now and her recipes always look so delicious, so I am very happy to be able to share some of her magic with you here on that Scandinavian feeling too.

Makes 30 – 35 biscuits

I can’t quite believe we’re at the end of my Summer recipe sharing here on That Scandinavian Feeling. I have had a delightful time researching Scandinavian inspired dishes and coming up with my own free from versions. I originally had a kind of truffle in mind for the sweet recipe in this series and it just didn’t work out. I went with the flow, channeled my inner hygge and created these scrumptious cinnamon and ginger biscuits instead. It’s the first time I’ve really been able to create a proper biscuity crunch whilst keeping the recipe gluten free, refined sugar free and dairy free. I hope you enjoy these very yummy biscuits, they are perfect with a nice cup of tea or coffee!
