I put together a quick recipe for spirulina biscuits that you can have as a nutritional supplement if you fancy it.
Spirulina cookies – for 16 biscuits
2 tsp olive oil
200g rice syrup
2 generous tbsp Almond butter
4 rounded tsp spirulina
200g puffed rice
pinch of salt
optional: vanilla extract, mixed seeds, chopped dates
1. Line a small tray with grease proof paper.
2. Warm the rice syrup and nut butter on a low heat until it is liquid and well mixed.
3. Let it cool a little and add the spirulina and salt followed by the puffed rice. Add a little at a time to make sure each grain is covered.
4. Squash the mix into the tin tightly and mark the biscuits with a knife. Then leave it to cool.
Typically, spirulina is made of 5-15% lipids, 60-70% protein and 8-13% carbohydrate. Due to the concentrated nature of the food source, spirulina is rich in trace elements and minerals making it a great nutritional supplement.
