These are a baked oats kind of texture. Not crunchy like a biscuit, not as soft as cake, a sort of in between result. The whole recipe makes 9 mini bites and if you are a grazer these are just the ticket to satisfy that sweet craving too.
To make these Mini Cherry Bakewell Bites you will need
A baking tray
A food processor for making breadcrumbs
Pre heat oven to gas 6 , Electric 200, Fan 180
1 piece of Lo-Dough blitzed into breadcrumbs
1 extra large egg
1 tsp almond essence
2 tbsp Sukrin Gold
2 tbsp Sukrin Melis (icing sugar alternative)
9 glacé cherry halves
Place the sheet of baking paper on the baking tray and spoon 9 rounds of the mixture onto the sheet leaving a little space in between each one. Press into a biscuit shape.
Place in the top of the oven for apx 15 mins until golden brown. Remove and cool. Meanwhile, mix the Sukrin Melis with a tsp of water at a time – be very careful or it will go too watery, I want you to add a drop at a time until you achieve a thick paste texture that doesn’t run. When the bites are cool place a small about of the icing mix in the centre of each bite and top with a cherry half.
