Before we get to the recipes, I want to remind you: although there is no ordinary sugar in this cookie, but nevertheless – it is sweet due to syrups and dried fruits. Yes, it’s all natural and healthy. Gluten-free and healthy baking recipes #2.
Recipe #1: macaroons
ATTENTION: the cookie dough should be in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour!
Ingredients (about 40 pieces):
Cold Pressed Coconut oil 4.41oz
Agave syrup or maple syrup 1/2 cup Large egg 1 piece
Baking powder 2 teaspoons
Almond flour (or regular almonds ground into flour in a blender/mini-cutter) 2.64oz
Rice flour 3.53oz
Vanilla stick grains 1 pc
Rice milk for lubrication (or other vegetable)
Chopped almonds (for decoration) 3 tablespoons
Rub the syrup and coconut oil with a mixer until you have a homogeneous mass. Beat in 1 egg, add baking powder and whisk until airy. Add both types of flour and mix with a spoon (there should be no lumps). You should get a fairly thick lump of dough. Wrap it in plastic wrap and leave it in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
The dough can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. After an hour, remove the dough from the refrigerator and divide into 4 equal parts. Preheat the oven to 356 F. Roll 4 sausages out of the dough about as long as the length of a standard baking sheet.
Lay 2 baking sheets with baking paper and put 2 sausages on each at a good distance from each other (the cookies will grow in width), having previously crushed them with the palm of your hand so that they become flat.
Bake 1 baking sheet at a time for about 12 minutes — pull out until it starts to turn brown. Cut the freshly baked cookies immediately with a knife until they harden, and put them to cool on the grill.
