Gluten-Free Honey and Coconut Cookies

Serves: 20 biscuits |Prep: 20 min

Dairy Free Gluten Free High in Fibre

Serves: 20 biscuits |Prep: 20 min

Who doesn’t love a delicious honey cookie? This gluten-free version is a variation of our Honey and Spelt cookies developed for a community ‘Pay it Forward’ initiative. It contains a blend of desiccated coconut, almond meal and buckwheat flour which gives it a rich, nutty flavor.


You can adapt the sweetness levels by reducing or increasing the amount of honey in the recipe. For little taste-buds who are accustomed to refined processed biscuits, increase to 1/2 cup, and for young children who aren’t use to sweet foods decrease it to 1/4 cup.


The almonds provide a fantastic protein and fiber boost. For a school-friendly version, replace the almond meal with pumpkin seed meal (grind up 1 cup of pumpkin seeds in a high-speed processor and voila… homemade pumpkin seed meal!)

Ingredients

Method


1 cup desiccated coconut
3/4 cup almond meal (for a school-friendly biscuit use pumpkin seed meal)
3/4 cup buckwheat flour
1 egg
3 tbs extra virgin coconut oil, melted
1/3 cup raw honey
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking powder
Pinch of sea salt
1. Preheat oven to 360ºF and line two baking trays with baking paper.
2. Place all ingredients in a high-speed food processor and process until a sticky cookie dough is formed. Wet hands with water to prevent dough from sticking to hands.
3. Separate the dough into 20 even-sized balls.
4. Place balls on the baking tray.
5. Using the palm of your hand, press the balls down to form a thick flat round cookie about 1/4" thick.
6. Bake at 360ºF for 10–12 minutes or until the sides are golden brown.
7. The cookies will appear soft to touch but will harden when cool. Place on wire biscuit rack to cool down completely.

Tip:
Wet your hands with a little water if the dough is too sticky to form balls. Serve immediately. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks or freeze for up to 4 months.
