Lovely sugar-free coconut and apple biscuits

I made these a few days ago and they went down a treat, but I was advised to put some apple into them. I added apple and sultanas, as they go very well together. They have quite a crumbly texture, so they are a bit like sugar free shortbread in a way.

2tsp truvia/stevia (or agave nectar/syrup)
50g porridge oats
75g plain flour
75g butter
1/2tsp bicarbonate of soda
1tsp almond extract
1/2 of an apple, grated
50g dessicated coconut
1 medium egg
25g sultanas or raisins
A small splash of milk

First of all you need to line and grease one or two baking trays (sheets).

Next, measure out the coconut, flour, stevia, oats and bicarbonate of soda into a bowl (or a food processor) and then mix until it resembles dry bread crumbs.

Then measure out the softened butter and cut it into small cubes, and add to the mixture.

After that, you measure out and add the almond extract, grated apple, sultanas or raisins and the egg into the mixture.

When you have added those, mix it until it is all thoroughly combined.

Finally roll small or large sections of the dough between your palms until they are round and smooth-ish, and place onto the tray(s).

Put them into the oven for 12-18 minutes, or until they are golden brown and crispy.

I hope you make these, and if you do, comment below how you made them and if you changed anything.

Many thanks,
