Home made gluten free shortbread biscuits with ground almonds 🌞

β€’16 Replies

Hi everyone,

These are one of my favourite biscuits made with ground almonds and plain GF flour which includes buckwheat flour. I used organic butter free range eggs and unrefined sugar with ground almonds to top so they are still much healthier than many shop bought biscuits and a treat for those of us who need a gluten free diet.


175g plain gf flour 75g ground almonds 250g butter 2 free range eggs 100g unrefined brown sugar mixed in a food processor then coated with 50g flaked almonds and baked for approx 35/40 mins in a baking tray at 175C

I like biscuits like this with a cup of tea or with fruit like raspberries and strawberries and they're so easy to make

what is unrefined brown sugar ? I live in edmonton, Alberta Canada not sure if we can find it ?

in reply to Mncwdj1

Hello Mncwdj1 I tend to buy golden sugar or Demerara for baking as they are less refined than white sugar, here's a link to sugars in Canada:


I hope this helps, Jerry 😊
