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.
A nice treat to go with your tea, because these are very dry. But they are also very light and not too sweet, just delicate in both flavour and texture. Reading all the possible adaptations in the description and in the notes I used ingredients to adhere to my family's diets. I used white rice flour to keep it gluten free and chose to use crushed almonds instead of hemp or poppy seeds. Two teaspoons are not enough for the final step, so I ended up tripling it. I made some with almonds and some with sesame seeds. Thank you for the recipe. - 15 Mar 2016 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I had to add an additional 1/2 to 3/4 cup rice flour to the recipe. I also baked for only 7-8 minutes in my convection oven. - 12 Sep 2017 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
