Gluten Free Shortbread Cookies Recipe

Baking gluten free is almost as easy as baking with gluten. Considering we are not counting on the elastic properties of the gluten we can substitute flour with common staple ingredients like rice to make basic snacks. Cookies one of the easiest things to make. They lasts long if needed and satisfy the sweet tooth in desperation.  It’s a sugar free recipe but it’s far for being low carb as the banana and rice flour are both high carbohydrate foods. We may swap the banana to a non caloric sweetener like stevia to reduce the extra energy in the cookies but then we loose the mild banana flavor too. Well, for some of us it’s a win-win too.

Ingredients

  • 2½ cup / 300g Rice flour
  • 2 oz / 50g Coconut oil
  • ½ cup / 100ml Coconut milk
  • 1 Egg (medium)
  • 1 teaspoon Baking powder
  • 2 Bananas (ripe, mashed) or sweetener of choice
  • 4 oz / 100g Chocolate (for melting)
  • 4 oz / 100g Shredded coconut
