These Ginger Biscuits are a perfect all-inclusive treat that is perfect for those with any special dietary requirements; they are gluten-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free!
Natural and Healthy Ginger Biscuits
These Ginger Biscuits are made with uber-healthy ingredients and are therefore low in fat, sugar, carbs, and calories. These biscuits are made with stevia, a natural sweetener used as a substitute for sugar in beverages and desserts. These biscuits are gluten-free and made without wheat flour. Instead, they are made with a combination of rice flour, almond flour, tapioca or potato flour, and coconut flour. Nut milk (almond or coconut) is used as a replacement for dairy milk for these biscuits.
Traditional Biscuits with Spice
What makes these biscuits unique is that they consist of a blend of many interesting spices. Ground ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon are used to spice these biscuits and add a lovely earthy and nutty aspect to the biscuits. If you would like to take the spices further, add some all-spice or cloves into the mix too. Ground ginger makes this dish even healthier as it has many health benefits. Ginger has anti-diabetic properties as it can lower blood sugar levels. Ginger also aids in reducing indigestion and can help lower cholesterol levels. It has been said that ginger also helps fight infections as it inhibits the growth of many types of bacteria.
