If you don’t eat wheat, it is sometimes hard to resist sweets and cookies, especially at this time of the year. This is why I made myself some gluten-free cookies the other day! They were not enough sweet for some, but I loved them anyway. This recipe couldn’t be more simple, you need only 8 ingredients and I assure you, they’re so much fun to make! They may not look as presentable as the ones on Pinterest, but are still worth a try ;) You’ll need:
250 g butter ♥ 3–4 tbsp honey ♥ 3 eggs ♥ 250 g rice flour ♥ 200 g buckwheat flour
2 tsp baking powder ♥ 3 tbsp roasted coconut flour ♥ cinnamon ♥ walnuts (optional)
Melt the butter and mix it with eggs and honey in a bowl. Add some cinnamon, then coconut, rice and buckwheat flour and mix thoroughly. If the dough is too soft or sticky, you can add some more rice flour, but let me just remind you that the dough should be a bit sticky – it will go in the fridge for 20 minutes and will harden in the meantime anyway. When the consistency is right, cover the dough with a cloth and put it in the fridge for around 20 minutes.
When you take it out, you can start with the best part! Cover the baking tray with parchment paper and start making balls. There should be around three centimeters between them as they will grow during baking. I stuck some walnuts in one half of the cookies. I was concerned it would be too much, but it turned out pretty well!
Put the baking tray in a preheated oven (170°C) for 15–20 minutes. The cookies are done when they get golden brown. Because there is no wheat in them, they tend to crumble at start, but when they cool down, they’re just fine.
Aren’t they cute? :D Probably the best cookies I made in years, I just have to try to cut out some shapes the next time, I’ll keep you posted if they turn out to be good :) And I’ll probably take them with me everywhere I go, you never know when you’ll start craving some sweets! :) Take care,
