Fancy a quick easy, sweet treat? As usual Eleanor Ozich doesn't disappoint with her offering this month, perfect with a cuppa or in the kids' lunchbox


These vanilla biscuits have a delicious soft and chewy texture, and the perfect amount of sweetness. They are naturally sweetened with a little honey and contain a handful of simple ingredients. Perfect for an afternoon pick-me-up. Enjoy.

1 cup ground almonds
1/2 cup organic peanut butter (you can use any type of nut butter)
3 tbsp honey
1/2 cup raisins (or any dried fruit of your choice)
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking soda

Preheat the oven to 180°C, and line a baking tray with baking paper.

In a food processor add the almonds, peanut butter, honey, raisins, vanilla and baking soda. Process until a dough-like texture is achieved (about 1 minute). You may need to scrape down the sides a little.

Using your hands, form small balls and place them on to the baking paper, a couple of centimeters apart as they expand a little.

Using a fork or your fingers, press down on each ball to flatten in half.

Place in to the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes or until nice and golden on the outside.

Makes around 16 medium-sized cookies that will keep for 3-4 days in an airtight container.
