Instructions
To make the biscuits:
  1. Heat your oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the maple syrup, coconut sugar, vanilla extract and egg and mix well with a wooden spoon.
  3. Crush the cardamom pods in a pestle and mortar, or with the back of a spoon, and discard the green outer husk. Grind the black inner cardamom seeds in the pestle and mortar, coffee grinder or mini food processor so they turn into a powder. Then add the powder to your liquid ingredients.
  4. Grate the zest from the lemon with a fine grater (like a Microplane) into the saucepan with your liquid ingredients.
  5. In a large bowl mix the spelt flour with the baking powder. Then add in the liquid ingredients from the saucepan and fold into a smooth biscuit dough.
  6. Pop a little flour onto a flat surface and roll out the dough with a rolling pin until it is even and about 2-3mm thick. Cut the biscuit dough into circles with a cookie cutter. With half of the circles, using a mini cookie cutter also cut out a heart, circle or star shape from the middle.
  7. Place the biscuits onto a baking sheet lined with baking parchment or a silicone mat. Bake for 12-14 minutes until golden brown. Then pop on a cooling rack.
To make the jam:
  1. Whilst the biscuits are cooking, make the chia jam. Simply add the frozen berries, chia seeds and honey to a saucepan and cook on a medium heat until it thickens into a jam like consistency. This should take around 5-8 minutes. Then remove from the heat and let it cool.
To assemble:
  1. Once the biscuits and chia jam have cooled, spread a little jam in the centre of the full circle base biscuits and then pop the biscuits with the shape cut out on top to make a scrumptious jammie lover!
Recipe Notes

Cooks' Tips:

  • Use whichever mini cookie cutter shapes you like for the tops - they all work well and look super cute over the chia jam.
  • Can be stored in an airtight tin for up to 7 days (although I doubt they'll last that long!).
  • You can make a batch of just the biscuit bases as well as they're perfect to pop in lunch boxes or as an after school treat.
