Gluten Free Anzac Biscuits
Ok you asked for it ! So here they are – gluten free Anzacs. The perfect cookie for gluten free diets that will satisfy that sweet cookie craving, it’s hard to stop at one. The almonds contain protein and add a lovely sweetness, and I’ve replaced butter with macadamia nut oil which contains heart healthy mono-unsaturated fats. These cookies keep for about 5 days and make the perfect snack if you’re craving something sweet and healthy.
1 cup (100 g) almond meal (ground almonds)
1 cup (100 g) flaked almonds
1 cup (75 g) organic desiccated coconut (see notes)
1/4 (80 g) cup honey
1/4 cup (60 ml) macadamia nut oil
1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda
1 tablespoon water
Combine almond meal, flaked almonds and coconut.
Combine honey and oil into a small pot and heat gently.
Mix the bicarb and water then pour into the honey pot and mix until it starts to froth.
Pour into the dry nut ingredients and mix through until combined. Add a little water if needed to combine which will help them stick together.
Form into 22 cookies
Bake in a low pre heated oven 120 C (248 F) for about 30 minutes until golden.
