These Ginger Snap Biscuits are to die for (and they won’t hurt your waistline). Whip some up today!

Makes 20 -24 biscuits


  • ½ cup raw buckwheat
  • 3/4 cup oats
  • ¼ cup boiling water
  • 1 cup dates
  • 1 – 2 teaspoons of fresh ginger, peeled and grated (depending on taste,
  • can replace with minced ginger or vanilla extract)
  • 1 tablespoon golden syrup or honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat an oven to 160 degrees and grease a baking tray.
  2. In a small heat proof bowl place dates, golden syrup/honey, ginger, and cinnamon, pour over boiling water and allow to soak. While dates are soaking, use a mix stick or food processor grind raw buckwheat and oats into fine flour. Place buckwheat flour into a medium sized mixing bowl and set aside.
  3. Place date mixture, including all liquid, into a food processor on high until a smooth paste forms. Add date mixture to flour and mix well. Mixture may seem dry at first but after thorough mixing should come together as a thick, moist dough. Roll mixture into tablespoon sized ball, press flat and place on the baking tray (if dough not thick enough add more oats). Bake in pre-heated oven for 15 – 20 mins.

*Note, these biscuits can be left raw and enjoyed as a non-bake bliss ball.

  • They look great but where do I find raw buckwheat? I do t think I’ve ever seen it in Coles

    • Woolworths has raw buckwheat in the health food isle (macro brand, beige with pink package), otherwise every health food store should sell it.
