Diabetic friendly Brain biscuits

 I’ve called these ‘ Brain Biscuits’ because the contain both Walnuts and Sunflower seeds.  Both excellent brain food. To increase the fibre content I’ve used Wholemeal plain flour and Sunflower seeds. I’ve also used olive oil instead of butter. Then I replaced the sugar with NatVia.
