Honey and Spelt Biscuits

Dairy Free High in Fibre Nut Free

This delicious Honey and Spelt biscuit recipe was developed for Our Big Kitchen’s Pay it Forward initiative. Wholesome Child was invited to give the traditional honey biscuit a healthy overhaul. Mums, dads, children and caregivers all came together to bake 10,000 biscuit to donate to the Sydney Children’s Hospital.


It is a cause dear to my heart, and one I speak of in my Wholesome Child Book, with small tweaks, we can take everyday recipes that our children love to eat and make them more nutritionally sound. Swapping from white (often bleached) flour to a wholemeal flour, replacing hydrogenated vegetable oils with virgin coconut oil or unsalted butter, using a natural sweetener such as raw honey or coconut sugar instead of refined sugar are all small changes… but make a big nutritional difference.


I am so delighted the children at the hospital will be receiving this mouth-watering wholemeal spelt biscuit that is free from additives, flavourings and colourings.


This biscuit is easy-to-make, delicious and will suit all ages.
