Gluten free vegan quinoa shortbread biscuits.

Hi everyone,

I’ve been experimenting with dairy free baking and my vegan friend and neighbour is popping round this afternoon so I said I’ll bake some cookies.

I ground some quinoa in my coffee grinder to make a quinoa flour as I like adding quinoa to food as it’s so healthy.

Here’s the recipe: 50g ground quinoa 250g plain gluten free flour 200g Pure vegan cooking block 100g brown sugar 50ml of vegan single cream and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence.

I just weighed it and then whizzed it up and spread it in a Pyrex dish and baked for approx 25 mins @170C

Enjoy your Saturday folks and stay safe especially if travelling this weekend.

Thank you Sue and your'e so right about quinoa, it also adds protein which important in gluten free baking so its win win and then I get to eat them so even better. 👍 😁

I think that's a very useful recipe for me Jerry, I bought a packet of quinoa a couple of months ago and I still haven't found a use for..👍😊

This sounds really wonderful, Jerry! :-) I know your friend/neighbor is going to enjoy the biscuits. What flavor quinoa did you use for the biscuits? :-)

Hey thanks Leah my neighbour loved the biscuits and took some home. I buy unflavoured quinoa so when ground it’s like a coarse flour. 😊

That's a great idea-- unflavored quinoa. I'll have to check to see if we have that and then add it to the biscuits when I can get them baked. :-)

You're welcome! Anytime! :-)

Your shortbread cookies came out successful and looking lovely
