Proving that yummy treats don’t have to be full of sugar and refined grains, these simple biscuits are a deliciously satisfying treat for the whole family. Ginger and cinnamon spice up the coconut, and because they’re rich in good fats and fibre, they won’t trigger cravings. Add 2 tablespoons of chopped dark chocolate for a sweeter twist.
