Blueberry Walnut Biscuits – Gluten-Free and No Sugar Added

These Blueberry Walnut Biscuits are the perfect healthy treat. With Mother’s Day coming up, they make an incredible breakfast or brunch addition, or snack on-the-go. Plus they are naturally sweetened, full of healthy fats and just the perfect texture.

The blueberries burst with juicy flavour and the nuts are so naturally sweet, you won’t believe there is no sugar added. Plus they are gluten-free and taste very similar to a blueberry crumble. 

Blueberries are high in an important anti-oxidant compound called resveratrol; the same compound found in red wine grapes. This makes blueberries the perfect choice when it comes to preventing premature aging, protecting against heart disease, boosting brain function and preventing degenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s. Blueberries are also amazing at promoting healthy skin, helping with weightloss and aiding in digestion with soluble and insoluble fibre.

Beautiful blueberries are in season in the summer so take advantage of this nutrient-dense superfood with these delicious, wholesome Blueberry Walnut Biscuits.
