Lemon and Poppy Seed Biscuits (Everything-Free)

If you're looking for a treat this Easter weekend that is something other than chocolate these might be for you. 

By the time I'm done telling you what's not in these biscuit/cookie creations you will be thinking well, what IS in them?? (Apart from lemon and poppy seeds.)

There is no:
  • sugar
  • dairy
  • gluten
  • flour
  • nuts

What is the main ingredient? Chickpeas.

Stay with me here, just a second. You can't taste the chickpeas. But they do create the best flour like cookie texture for these biscuits. Trust me! 

Lemon and Poppy Seed Biscuits
(Sugar-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, grain-free)
Makes about 20 biscuits.


  • 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • juice of 1 1/2 lemons
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seed butter  
  • 1/4 cup flax seed
  • 1/4 tsp pure stevia
  • 1 Tbsp poppyseeds
  • pinch of fine sea salt

  • Preheat oven to 180C and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  • Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until thoroughly combined. 
  • Spoon about half a tablespoon of the mixture onto lined baking tray and flatten down into a cookie shape with your fingers. The biscuits won't change shape in the oven.
  • Bake for 20 minutes. 

When you pull these out of the oven you won't believe they are flourless. They are a bit crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, perfect!

You can find this recipe over at Wellness Weekend.
