Nutrient Dense and Delicious NZ Anzac Biscuits


These biscuits are very easy to create, a nice heath option for crew afternoon tea or just to have in the biscuit tin for snacking on espcially delicious coated in dark chocolate.  Mix and match your favourite seeds and nuts to create a different flavoured biscuit such as cashew and sesame seed or Brazil nut and sunflower. Add a combination of nuts and seeds will add a greater nutrient profile as they each have there own nutritional strengths. Very high in fiber so great for digestive health. Enjoy :)
