Low Carb, Keto, Paleo Ginger Biscuits 

  • Prep time: 20 minutes

I love the smell when my daughters cook Delia Smiths Ginger bread biscuits, so I have sort of morphed it with the Hemsley and Hemsley recipe to make a low carb/ Paleo/ keto version

 To make up for the lack of sugar you need to max the ginger, they are fiery but satisfying.  You may wish to adapt the sweetener and ginger depending on your taste, but below gives you 2g carbs a biscuit


·       10g of black treacle

·       10g of date syrup

·       zest of an 1 unwaxed lemon and ½ unwaxed orange

·       1  - 2 tablespoon ( 15-30ml) of water

·       1 -2 tablespoon/ 15-30g of  ground ginger ( yes tablespoons!)

·       1 tsp of cinnamon

·       ¼ teaspoon ground cloves


·       50g of coconut oil

·       50g of grass fed butter ( Vegan option - substitute for another 50g of coconut oil)

·       1 tsp vanilla extract

·       ½ teaspoon bicarb


·       225g of ground almonds



 1.    Put the treacle, date syrup, water, spices and zest together in a large saucepan.

 2.    Then bring them to boiling point, stirring all the time. You want a paste so if too dry add more water

 3.    Now remove the pan from the heat and stir in the butter /  coconut oil (cut into lumps) and the bicarbonate of soda and vanilla

 4.    Next stir in the almonds  gradually until you have a smooth manageable dough – add a little more almonds if you think it needs it.

 5.    Leave the dough covered in a cool place to become firm (approximately 30 minutes).

 6.    Pre-heat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4.

 7.    Roll the dough out  between 2 squares of baking paper, to around 3mm , cut out with a  circular cutter and place on a baking sheet lined with more baking paper

 8.    Bake near the centre of the oven, one sheet at a time, for 10–15 minutes. Keep an eye on them as the almonds can suddenly burn , so you may have  to remove the outer ones first

 9.    Leave them to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire cooling rack.
