    About this recipe: Honey biscuits made with rice flour, cardamom and honey are gluten-free and sweetened only by honey. In Ancient temples, they offered 'Honey cakes' to the goddess. I imagine that they might have tasted something like this! Coconut oil can be used in place of butter, if desired. Barley flour can be used in place of rice flour. Crushed almonds or poppy seeds can be used in place of hemp seeds.

    • 120g butter, softened

    • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
    • 300g rice flour
    • 1/4 teaspoon gluten free baking powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
