The wholewheat honey biscuits are a variant of the classic wholewheat biscuits without butter and without sugar. In fact, for the preparation we will use wholewheat flour, extra virgin olive oil, honey, an egg yolk and baking powder; they will be ready in a few minutes and they can be preserved for many days. Perfect for those who follow a low-calorie diet and for those who want a healthy and delicious snack. Enjoy your wholewheat honey biscuits for breakfast or a snack: they are excellent to soak in milk or tea, thanks to their rustic and slightly caramelized flavor which makes them irresistible. Let’s see how to prepare them.

How to prepare wholewheat honey biscuits

Mix the wholewheat flour and baking powder in a bowl together (1). Make a hole in the center of the flour and add the extra virgin olive oil, honey and yolk. Mix with a spoon and then knead with your hands (2), until you will have obtained a smooth and homogeneous mixture. Cover it with plastic wrap (3) and let it rest in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes.

After the necessary time has passed, roll out the dough with a rolling pin (4) and cut out your biscuits: you can give them the classic round shape, or the one you prefer. Place them on a dripping pan lined with parchment paper and bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees C for about 15 minutes, or until they are golden brown. Once ready let them cool (5) completely, before serving or storing them. Your wholewheat honey biscuits are ready to be enjoyed (6).

Tips

The dough will be more sticky than the classic shortcrust pastry: if it is difficult to roll it out with a rolling pin, form balls with dampened hands, lay them on the dripping pan, flatten them slightly and proceed with the cooking.

You can flavor the dough with the addition of grated orange or lemon zest, with a pinch of cinnamon or with vanilla, according to your tastes.

Do not prolong cooking beyond the recommended times and let them cool completely before storing them in a tin box: in this way they will remain fragrant without moistening.

In our recipe we used acacia honey, with a more delicate and perfect flavor for the preparation of desserts, but you can use whatever you prefer: keep in mind, however, that the flavor will be very differentt.

Those who prefer can add a little brown sugar to the surface before cooking.

Preservation

You can preserve wholewheat honey biscuits for 4-5 days in a tin box or a glass container with airtight closure.
