Vegetarian. Low FODMAP. Gluten Free
Makes approx 16
3 tbsp of Natvia natural sweetner – baking mix
1/2 tsp of baking powder
1 tsp of cinnamon
1 tsp if cardamom
1 cup of coconut flour
1 cup of quinoa flakes (or 1/2 ground flaxseed + 1/2 quinoa flakes)
4 tbsp of rice malt syrup or coconut sugar
60ml of coconut oil
85g of butter
1/2 tsp of vanilla essence
Place natvia, spices, melted coconut oil & butter, rice malt syrup, eggs & vanilla essence into a bowl and whisk until well combined.
Sift coconut flour, quinoa flakes and baking powder into the wet mixture and stir until the mixture forms a dough.
Roll the dough into tablespoon sized balls and squish the mixture onto a tray lined with baking paper then press down on the top of each cookie with a fork.
Place the cookies into a pre-heated oven at 170 degrees for 20mins, or until they start to brown.
Whilst the cookies are baking, melt the coconut oil and combine with the icing ingredients.
Once you have removed the cookies from the oven allow then to cool for 15mins before coating the underside with icing. You could even lather up a cookie with icing and then stick two together, up to you!
Place the cookies back on some baking paper, with the chocolate side facing upwards and pop them into the freezer for 5mins or until the icing has gone hard.
Then Voila, you’re done.
