Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil.
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon granulated stevia.
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla powder.
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest.
  • 1 3/4 cup almond meal.
  • pinch salt.
  • tablespoon poppyseeds.
  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten.

Directions

Preheat oven to 180ºC / 350ºF. In a large bowl, combine oil, stevia, vanilla and lemon zest. Add the flour, salt and poppy seeds and work with your fingers for a good five minutes – this will release the oil in the meal and form a better dough.

Roll dough to about 1.5cm thick. Cut into shapes with a cookie cutter. Brush with lightly beaten egg white to give it a pretty gloss. Bake for 6-8 minutes, until it gets a light golden brown tinge around the edges.

Use a bunny cutter to make a batch of Easter cookies. If you can’t be bothered with cutters, roll the dough into balls and squish flat.
