Gluten Free Peanut Cookies

Gluten Free Peanut Cookies

Makes 24 Cookies

  • Gluten Free
  • Dairy Free
  • Egg Free
  • Fructose Free

Ingredients:

  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1½ Teff flour
  • ½ cup of dark chocolate bits (gluten free)
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • ½ cup coconut oil, in liquid form
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 cup  peanut butter

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 120 degree Celsius and line a tray with greased baking paper.
  2. In a large bowl combine the Teff flour, salt and dark chocolate bits and set aside.
  3. In a food processor combine all the remaining ingredients and process until smooth.
    • Hint: If your coconut oil is solidified microwave it first.
  4. Add your processed mixture to the Teff flour mix and stir until incorporated. The batter will be thick, but will still be moist when you pick it up with your hands.
  5. Use a tablespoon to scoop some of the mixture. Roll each portion in between the palms of your hands until smooth and round. Place the round ball of the prepared cookie sheet and gently press down with a fork to flatten.
  6. Bake for 18-20 minutes then cool completely before serving. The cookies will be fragile when they come straight out of the oven, allow them to cool completely before handling.

 

Helpful Hint:

You can make the batter 24 hours in advance and place it in an airtight container in the fridge and let it sit outside for about one hour before baking.

Passionfruit Cake

We have recently had a glut of passionfruit, and after making passionfruit jam and passionfruit butter, one of my friends made a comment about passionfruit cake. I don't know if she was thinking more along the lines of a sponge with passionfruit icing, but what immediately came to my mind was a moist syrupy Middle Eastern style cake, so I set about making one. Loosely based on that old gluten free favourite, orange and almond cake, I think the addition of LSA mix gives it a lovely slightly nu...
