How to make lemon biscuits?

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and line the baking tin with baking paper. In a large bowl, mix together the oat flour, rice flour, potato starch, baking powder and baking soda and set aside for a moment.

In a small bowl, combine the maple syrup, lemon zest and juice, ground flax seeds, melted coconut oil and vanilla (if using). Mix until smooth.

Then pour the liquid mixture into the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly until a dough forms. Pour the dough into a pre-covered baking tin and bake for 30-40 minutes, until the top of the dough is golden brown and a toothpick comes out dry. Let the biscuit cool for 5 minutes in the mould, then remove from the mould and place on a plate of your choice to cool.

Prepare the glaze. To do this, place the pre-soaked indian nuts, lemon juice, water and maple syrup in a blender and process until creamy (make sure the cream is not too runny). When the cake has cooled, cover it with the lemon glaze. Slice and serve!
