Chocolate Coated “McVities” Biscuits

These chocolate coated biscuits are incredibly tasty but what makes this recipe just that tad bit better is that you can still enjoy tea dipped biscuits in a healthier, more nourishing way for your body. I’ve made these using organic and natural ingredients that won’t leave you with a sugar crash! 

Everyone loves them and they have made me enjoy baking so much more than I already did; keep your eyes peeled for more baked goods! What makes these biscuits so special is the combination of sweet, salty, crunch and softness that hooks you in, and we no longer have the originals stashed in our cupboards, happily, so these really hit the spot. 

I’ve come up with a similar version here, which will satisfy your biscuit cravings when they set in. These are your perfect tea time biscuits; make them when friends are around and they’ll guess they’re healthy! 


12 biscuits

Ingredients:

Biscuit Base:

3/4 cup ground almonds 

1 1/4 cup ground oats/oat flour 

1/4 cup cashew butter 

1/2 cup almond butter
1/2 cup coconut nectar/maple syrup 

1/4 cup coconut sugar

1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Pinch of hinalayan/sea salt

Chocolate coating:

1/2 cup cacao butter 

1 tbsp coconut oil, solid

1/4 cup cacao powder

1/4 cup coconut nectar/maple syrup

Method:

Preheat the oven to 180C. Line a baking tray with parchment paper or grease with coconut oil. 

In a large mixing bowl combine the biscuit base ingredients and stir well so that everything is all nicely combined. Scoop out a tablespoon of the mix and place onto the tray; flatten into a small to medium hobnob sized circle biscuit. Repeat until you make 12. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until light gold on the edges. The biscuits might still seem a little soft in the middle but they will harden once they cool. Leave them on a cooling rack for half an hour. 

Make the chocolate by melting the cacao butter and coconut oil in a bowl over a saucepan half full of water and then stirring in the other ingredients. 

Dip the biscuits in the chocolate (you might want to do this a couple of times for each biscuit) and then drizzle extra chocolate on top if you fancy. Leave them in the fridge for 10 minutes for the chocolate to set. Happy dipping!
