I’m on a mission to come up with a plain biscuit style snack for my son to take to school for a play piece. Something a little more nutritious than just flour, sugar & fat. I’ve been using the basic shortbread recipe I like and mucking about with the ingredients. I really liked the ones I made with oatmeal and Sunbutter in them but alas he did not. Today’s effort was made using Nutribix. I’ve only made these once! I’m sharing at special request but I think they turned out pretty well.
Makes approx 24 depending on size of cutters
50g Nutribrex (3 pieces)
175g plain gluten free flour
1/2 teaspoon Xanthan gum
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
75g soft brown sugar
150g Stork block
Preheat oven to 180C
Blitz 3 Nutribrex in a food processor (or crush in a bowl) until fine
Add gluten free flour, xanthan gum, flax and sugar to the food processor and combine on a low speed (or stir well)
Turn mix out onto a well floured surface, I use baking parchment and squish together into a ball. Divide ball into two and squash down with your hand then roll with a well floured rolling pin (or just use the palm of your hand)
Cut out shapes and place on a baking tray. You may want to line your tray with baking parchment, I didn’t and a couple of my biscuits stuck! I made two trayfuls.
Remove from oven and allow to cool for a few minutes on the tray before transferring to a cooling rack. My hearts worked better than my stars as the points of the stars got a little crunchy.
Remember you’ve made them for your children and don’t eat them all before they come home from school!
