Ingredients:

  • 2 Weet-Bix biscuits, crushed 
  • 1 ½ cups plain white flour
  • ½ cup plain wholemeal flour 
  • 2 ½ tsp baking powder 
  • ¾ cup castor sugar 
  • 1 cup whole raw hazelnuts or nuts of your choice 
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten 
  • juice and rind of 1 orange

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. In a large bowl combine all the dry ingredients. 
  2. In a separate bowl, combine eggs, orange juice and rind. Add egg mixture to dry ingredients and stir to form a dough. 
  3. Turn dough on to a floured surface, divide in two and shape into two logs. Place logs on a greased and floured tray and bake for 15 minutes.
  4. Allow logs to cool completely. Cut into thin slices. Spread in a single layer on a baking tray and bake in a slow oven, 150°C for 10 minutes or until firm and golden.

Tips:

  • Use any seed, nut and citrus combination of your choice, e.g. lime and macadamia. 
  • Lime or lemon juice works just as well as orange.
