Gluten Free Orange Sesame and Cacao Nib Biscuits

February 5th, 2020  |  Health and Wellness

Hello there,

I’ve been having a bit of a craving for oranges lately. I recently made my old faithful Gluten Free Orange Cake, which I hadn’t made in a while and it really hit the spot. Sticking with the orange theme I created these Orange, Sesame, and Cacao Nib Biscuits, which were very tasty. They are quick and easy to make, gluten-free, egg-free,  vegan and refined sugar-free.

In this recipe, I used orange essential oil, which isn’t essential for this recipe but definitely gives it a beautiful fragrant orange flavour (plus has plenty of health benefits). After making my Matcha Peppermint Slice using pure peppermint essential oil, I was quite blown away by how amazing food can taste with the addition of a few drops of organic essential oils. As I may have mentioned I use First Light 100% organic essential oil, which is made with integrity and can be safely used in food.

Health benefits to Orange Essential Oil

  • Anti-inflammatory properties (both internal and external)
  • Alleviates anxiety and depression – just the smell can bring about a happy relaxed feeling and an enhanced mood
  • Antiseptic – can help fight of microbes and disinfect wounds
  • Natural Sedative
  • Mild aphrodisiac – can help increase libido

Common methods of use for First Light Organics Essential Oils: 

  • Vapourizing – add 6-8 drops of essential oil to water in a vapouriser. Apply heat, breathe deeply and enjoy the benefits.
  • Massage / Moisturiser – add 3 drops of essential oil to 1 teaspoon of massage oil, mix with fingertips and smooth over the skin (or 5 drops for 10ml of carrier oil).
  • Shower – cover the plughole in your shower with a face cloth, dispense 5 drops onto the shower basin and shower as normal, breathing in the steam to be energised.
  • Bathing – add 5 drops of essential oil to hot water and agitate the surface, then immerse and enjoy.
  • Spritz – add 2 drops of essential oil to a spray bottle of 100ml water. Shake and then mist your face and body with your eyes closed. Enjoy the sensation.
  • Compress – add 3-6 drops of essential oil in 200ml of water. Soak a washcloth, then press it into face.

You can use this particular essential oil in baking as I have here. I am very particular about using essential oils in cooking and will only do so if it is 100% certified organic and comes highly recommended.
