GLUTEN-FREE FLOUR MIX

  • 2 Cups Rice Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Potato Starch
  • 1/4 Cup Tapioca Flour

VEGAN SHORTBREAD COOKIES

  • 3/4 Cup Gluten-Free Flour Mix
  • 1 Cup Almond Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Tapioca Flour
  • 1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
  • 1/4 Cup Solid Coconut Oil
  • 6 tbsp. Maple Syrup

 

COOKING INSTRUCTIONS

1) Start by preheating your oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

2) Mix all your dry ingredients well, then add in the coconut oil. Use a spatula to mix everything well until a sandy grainy texture that can be clumped up is obtained.

3) Next, pour in the maple syrup and mix well until you get a dough (if the dough is too soft, place the mixture in fridge for 20 minutes).

4) Spread a piece of parchment paper on your counter and neatly place the dough on it, then cover with another parchment paper on top. Using a rolling pin, flatten the dough until you are left with 1/4 inch thick dough (be sure not to roll too thin!).

5) Next, grab a cookie cutter or glass cup and cut your dough into cookie shapes. Using a butter or cheese knife, gently transfer the cookie doughs onto a baking sheet on your baking tray.

6) Place the tray in the oven for 10 minutes (or until edges are golden), and enjoy!
