Crisp delicious Easter biscuits with a difference. These are lightly spiced, low in sugar, packed full of nutrients and purple! (Note: This recipe makes 26 biscuits)

  • Saucepan
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Wooden Spoon
  • Round-bladed knife
  • Rolling Pin
  • Biscuit Cutters
  • Oven
  • Wire Rack


  1. Firstly, slightly soften the coconut oil in a saucepan on a very low heat for only a few moments then pour it into the mixing bowl.
  2. Add the almond butter, yacon powder, sugar and spices together to the mixing bowl. Stir together until well combined.
  3. Add the two flours and currants to the mix and work them in with a wooden spoon until you have a crumbly type mixture.
  4. Next, add the water and stir with a round-bladed knife until well combined. 
  5. Pop your hands under the cold tap for a second then bring the mixture together with your hands to form a dough.
  6. Then, roll the mixture out to 6mm thickness with a rolling pin. There may be a few cracks as it is a crumbly mix, but this doesn't matter. Use your biscuit cutters to stamp out the shapes.
  7. Bake in the middle of the oven at 180 degrees for 10 - 12 minutes, becuase of the colour it is a bit difficult to tell when they are done but they should still be purple rather than brown. 
  8. Pull out a little and sprinkle over extra sugar if you'd like and leave to cook for an extra few minutes. 
  9. Once baked, turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely. 
  10. Serve and enjoy!
