1 cup chestnut flour
1 cup almond meal
2 tbs cocoa powder
11⁄2 tbs finely grated orange rind
2⁄3 cup coconut oil
11⁄2 heaped tbs manuka honey
1 egg yolk
Preheat a fan-forced oven to 160° Celsius/325° Fahrenheit.
Place the chestnut flour, almond meal, cocoa powder, orange rind, coconut oil, honey and egg yolk in a bowl and combine well.
Roll out the biscuit dough onto a sheet of baking paper, place another sheet of baking paper on the top of the dough to prevent sticking. Roll the dough until 5mm thick. Use a cookie-cutter to cut shapes from the dough, re-roll when necessary.
Place the cut biscuits on a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes or until they are slightly golden.
Cool the biscuits in a refrigerator before serving.
