Although I can't be 100% sure I am almost certain that most supermarkets now do "free from" ranges and that will probably include suitable biscuits. They usually have a complete row of shelves with it on.
I really appreciate all your lovely comments on my projects. Your feedback is very important to me.

Re: Recipe help
wont be near a supermarket until Tuesday if they have nothing I'm stuffed. Thought if I had a recipe I could make some and then it wouldn't matter if I couldn't find any.

Re: Recipe help
Easter biscuits Often associated with the West Country, these biscuits were traditionally eaten on Easter Sunday. Guide to the symbols Makes 25 Prep 15 minutes Cook 7-9 minutes Each 19g serving contains (excludes serving suggestion) kcal 74 CARBS 8.7g FIBRE 0.9g protein 1.4g FAT 3.0g saturates 0.3g sugars 3.6g salt 0.1g portions fruit & veg 0 Nutritional information explained What makes a healthy, balanced diet? Ingredients 6 tbsp rapeseed oil 1 egg 50g soft brown sugar (10 heaped tsp) 1½ –2 tsp stevia or other sweetener (equivalent to 5 heaped tsp sugar) Finely grated zest of 1 lemon Juice half a lemon 200g wholemeal flour 1 rounded tsp mixed spice 40g currants 10g chopped mixed citrus peel 1 tbsp plain flour for rolling 1 tsp caster sugar Method Preheat the oven to 170°C/gas 3. In a large bowl, beat the oil, egg, sugar, stevia, lemon zest and lemon juice. Add the flour, spice, currants and peel and mix well until the mixture forms a ball. Turn out the dough onto a well-floured surface and roll to 3–4mm thick. Using a 5cm fluted pastry cutter, cut out the biscuits and carefully place them onto a lightly oiled baking tray, re-rolling the trimmings as you go. You should get about 25 biscuits. Bake for about 7–9 minutes until just starting to brown at the edges, sprinkle with the caster sugar and cool on a wire rack. Chef's tips You could use a shaped cookie cutter, such as a rabbit or duck to make fun Easter biscuits for children. If you don’t have currants, raisins or sultanas work just as well, or use 50g mixed dried fruit instead of the currants and mixed peel. Freezing instructions: Suitable for freezing once cooked. Freeze in individually wrapped portions. Defrost for 2 hours, or in the microwave. I got this from the DiabetesUK website. They have lots of recipes there. .
