1 tbs coconut oil
2 tbs maple syrup
1 tbs manuka honey
drop of vanilla essence
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1. add the kernels to a blender, or food processor- keep your speed on low and pulse every few seconds while scraping the sides down

2. when your nut butter has become a liquid go ahead and add the rest of the ingredients and whizz again until its all combined.
300g of ground almonds or sweet apricot kernels
30g bitter apricot kernels
200g of coconut sugar
Grated zest of one lemon
3 egg whites
Optional coatings: flaked almonds; pine nuts; fennel seeds
Makes about 30
Line two baking trays with baking parchment.
Take the bitter kernels, cover them with boiling water and leave for about 5 minutes. Drain, then pop them out of their skins by squeezing them between your fingers. Grind them finely with some of the sugar. You could whizz them in a blender or processor, making sure to shake them regularly and add more sugar if they show any signs of going oily. Or you could use a pestle and mortar.
Mix the ground apricot kernels with the almonds, the rest of the coconut sugar and the lemon zest.
Whisk the egg whites with the almond essence, if using, until they form soft peaks, and then fold them into the nut mixture. You need to get everything thoroughly mixed, but don’t overdo it. Don’t worry if the egg whites seem to have lost volume. They will still do their job.
Dip your fingers into a bowl of cold water and pick out 20g lumps of the dough, slightly less if you are using the coatings. (If you’re not as obsessed as me with making every biscuit the same size, you could just weigh the first one then do the rest by eye. Or if you really don’t care, a heaped teaspoon would be about right. I find my digital scales invaluable here. I put a small plate on top, then add rough lumps of dough in 20g increments, either doing the necessary mental arithmetic myself or using the “tare” button to make life easier. I weigh them all out before shaping them).
Roll into balls as neatly as you can. If you are using the coatings, you’ll need to press the dough quite hard into them to get them to stick, then neaten up the balls. In any case, make sure to leave some uncoated, as they have their own charm and will be a good indicator of when the batch is cooked.
Place about 1” apart on the baking trays and leave out at room temperature for at least an hour.
Heat the oven to 190C / 375F / Gas Mark 5 (adjust for fan oven).
Bake for 10 to 15 minutes. Check them after 7 minutes, and turn the trays and swap them between shelves if necessary. Then check them every few minutes. They want to be golden brown, no more.
