Three healthy biscuit recipes

Snacking without remorse? Yes, it's possible - with the healthy biscuits from our chef at the Park Igls Medical Spa Resort! The secret: little sugar, but lots of healthy ingredients such as spelt, carrots and oats. The recipes are for approx. 20 biscuits each.

In this blog post you will find

  • Three healthy biscuit recipes for the Advent and Christmas season
  • Spelt biscuits
  • Carrot and oat biscuits
  • Orange and corn biscuits

A well-rounded thing

Spelt biscuits


  • 170g spelt flour
  • 50g icing sugar
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 35g butter
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 msp. cardamom, ground
  • Zest of one orange
  • Seeds from ¼ vanilla pod


  • 1 tsp beetroot powder
  • 2 tbsp icing sugar

Ready in no time


Pour the flour, sugar and spices into a mound and make a well. Add the softened butter in small pieces together with the sunflower oil. Add the egg yolk and work the flour inwards until you have a smooth dough.

Place the dough in cling film in the fridge for 30 minutes. Then roll out to half a centimetre thick and cut out biscuits. Bake the biscuits at 180°C on baking paper for approx. 8 mins. until golden brown.

Tip: Sieve the beetroot and icing sugar mixture onto the biscuits while they are still hot so that the flavour is better absorbed.


Healthy & juicy

Carrot and oat biscuits


YMelt the butter and sugar in a small pan over a medium to high heat and remove from the heat. Leave to cool and stir the remaining ingredients into the mixture. Place approx. 3cm mounds on baking paper and bake at 180°C for approx. 7-8 minutes until golden brown.
