A spice mop is the same as a spice nut but bigger.
Peppernuts are actually those delicious, block-shaped treats but most people call everything peppernuts.
- 150 g chufa flour extra fine
- 50 g arrowroot
- 50g coconut blossom sugar (they can be made with less sugar but this will make them less crunchy)
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- pinch of fine Himalayan salt or fine Celtic sea salt
- 2 tablespoons of biscuit spices
- 100 g (cold) butter, ghee or coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons milk, coconut milk, horchata or water
- 1 tablespoon chufa oil, olive oil will also do the trick (this makes it easy to spin small balls and makes them crispier)
- Add all the dry ingredients together and blend in the food processor.
- Add the butter, ghee or coconut oil along with the (coconut) milk and oil and mix again. Not too long, the dough should preferably remain cold.
- The spice mops turn out best when you let the dough rest overnight in the fridge.
- Make big balls of the dough and flatten them slightly.
- Place them on a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake for 25 minutes at 160 degrees.
- They only get crunchy later.
Black Pete went out cycling, then his tyre snapped.
Then he had to walk, with the bike attached to his hand.
He came into a village, and said to the blacksmith:
'I believe in my back tyre, there's a tiger nut!
