With so little flour and sweetened with dried apricots only, these biscuits make a nice low GI sweet treat. Like anything else, low GI does not necessarily mean low energy (kJ). The ingredients in these biscuits are nutritious but if you're looking to lose weight, exercise control and eat in moderation.
Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
Combine whole almonds and apricots in a food processor, using the blade, and process for 3 minutes. Add vanilla, apple juice concentrate and vinegar. Beat egg whites until stiff.
Fold through almond mixture.
Roll into small balls. Roll in wholemeal plain flour.
Place on a lightly greased non stick baking tray. Press down flat lightly.
Cook for 10 minutes, biscuits should be lightly browned around the edges. Do not overcook. Cool on a wire rack and keep in an airtight container.
