Gluten free Shortbread biscuits with coconut sugar ☕️

Hi folks,

I made some biscuits with pureed dates and was really pleased, so I looked for some date sugar but they only had coconut sugar. Whats interesting about coconut sugar is it contains inulin which helps probiotics to grow and flourish, so yes its still a sweetener and with calories but its an interesting alternative. I used quinoa flour and plain GF flour with organic butter coconut sugar and free range eggs to help bind the biscuits and shortbread are my favourite biscuits.

So here's a photo of some of my biscuits with a nice cuppa...

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. 😊

Thanks Deb's and I feel for you over the tea as I had to avoid all hot drinks for several days last week as I had to have dental surgery and afterwards I said was 'when can I have a cup of tea'...😊

Thank you Orangerose, here's my original recipe:

wheat-free.org/gluten-free-...

This is the variation I made yesterday:

280g plain GF flour

55g quinoa flour

225g unsalted butter

110g coconut sugar

2 large eggs, beaten

I baked them in a muffin tray as its quicker and easier and these are my favourite home made biscuits...😊

Thank you L-t. the thread yesterday was closed because of some of the responses and my thread this morning caused more conflict so I deleted it and I'm sorry that you wasted your time. And lucky Gary...😊
