Gluten Free Anzac Biscuits Recipe
You don't need wheat or even oats to enjoy the satisfying, delicious crunch of a well-made Anzac bikkie. Follow me..
If you don't have GF self-raising flour, it's easy to make. For every cup of flour, add 2 tsps of baking powder, and a little salt.
125gm Unsalted Butter, chopped
1 Tbs Golden Syrup
1 Tbs Honey
1 Cup Gluten Free self-raising flour
1 Cup Rice or Quinoa flakes (can be found in the health section of your supermarket)
1 Cup Dessicated Coconut
3/4 Cup Almond Meal
3/4 Cup firmly packed brown sugar
1-2 Tbs hot water
1. Place the butter, Golden Syrup and the Honey is a saucepan and cook over medium heat, until melted and combined
2. Combine the Flour, Rice or Quinoa flakes, Coconut, Almond Meal and Sugar in a bowl. Stir to combine. Add the Butter mixture and the hot water (1 Tbs at a time until you have a workable, not sticky, cookie dough). Mix well to combine, and knead gently so it comes together in a ball.
3. Wrap the dough up in plastic wrap and pop it in the freezer for 15 minutes to harden up. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees celsius (160 degrees celsius for fan forced ovens).
4. Arrange the dough on baking trays lined with baking paper. Cut them in to whatever size you wish, and they can be as pretty or as rag-tag as you want. Place them on the baking trays so that they aren't touching, and bake for 15 minutes, or until golden. When they are done, allow them to sit in the trays for 5-10 minutes, until they are solid enough to handle, then transfer them to a wire rack.
