Melt in the mouth Biscuits

We have really struggled over the years to make gluten free biscuits that still taste good and don’t break your teeth once they cool down.  We adapted a recipe and were amazed with the results.  They are not only incredibly tasty, but they take only a few simple minutes to make too.

Makes approximately 12 biscuits.

 

Ingredients:

50g ground almonds

50g gluten free flour

1/2 tsp gluten free baking powder

50g sugar

4 x tbsp oil

4 x tbsp water

 

Method:

  • Pre-heat the oven to 170 degrees C.
  • Cover 2 large baking sheets with greaseproof paper.
  • Mix the flour, ground almonds, sugar and baking powder together in a bowl.
  • Add the oil and water.
  • Mix until it forms a smooth paste.
  • Take a teaspoonful and drop it onto the greaseproof paper.
  • You should be able to fit about 8-10 on each tray.
  • Ensure that you leave spaces between the biscuit mixture, so that they don’t ooze into each other when baking.
  • Put in the oven and bake for approx 10 mins until golden brown.
  • Can be eaten warm or cold.
  • Best served with a cup of coffee or hot chocolate.

 

Enjoy! x

 

 

It’s snack time kids!

Look at these wonderful treats!. Morrisons have done us proud and created some delicious things for the packed lunch box or after school snack.  As a family, we have all gone gluten free for lent and therefore all have tried these delights.  We were pleasantly surprised at how ‘normal’ they tasted.  The jam tarts were so big and tasty, but the favourites in the family were the chocolate brownies….they disappeared far too quickly! It’s so nice to find a child friendly selection of goodies, as so many are aimed at adults.  The brownies and digestives also didn’t taste as overly sugary as many cakes/biscuits can do, which was refreshing and didn’t take anything away from the overall taste.

My little Coeliac definitely approves of these, thank you Morrisons! x
