Vegan & Gluten Free Vanilla Biscuit Recipe

Valentine’s day is just around the corner so of course I just had to make a heart shaped dessert. Valentine’s day wouldn’t be complete without a heart shape treat to show your other half how much they mean to you.

These vanilla biscuits are easy to make and delicious whilst also managing to be vegan AND gluten-free! All you need is aheart shaped cookie cutter and some dark chocolate to make them extra special. Decorate with some chopped nuts, seeds or dried fruit. I went a step further and topped mine with dried pomegranate seeds that the hubby got me as a gift a while back. They’re so cute!

Whether you’re celebrating Valentine’s day this Sunday or not, you shouldmake these anyway! Treat yourself to something special, or make them for a special friend orfamily!

Ingredients

  1. 1 cup (115g) oat flour (plain oats blended into a fine flour in the food processor) - use gluten-free oats if you have a gluten allergy
  2. 3/4 cup (135g) gluten-free flour
  3. 1 tsp baking powder
  4. 1/4 tsp salt
  5. 1/4 cup xylitol or stevia
  6. 1/4 cup maple syrup, honey or other liquid sweetener
  7. 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  8. 1/2 tsp vanilla paste or 1 tsp vanilla extract
  9. Chocolate of choice (I used green & black's 85% dark chocolate)

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 180*C (160*C fan assisted)/ 350*F
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the oat flour, gluten free flour, baking powder, salt and xylitol. Mix to combine.
  3. Melt the coconut oil then pour into the bowl of dry ingredients along with the liquid sweetener and vanilla.
  4. Mix until well combined. Use your hands to kneed the dough together. If the batter seems too dry, add in 1 tbsp at a time of milk or water. Cover and leave to chill in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
  5. Take out of the fridge and transfer onto a floured surface. Start rolling out as thin as possible. The thinner the biscuit the crispier the end result will be.
  6. Transfer your onto a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes, take out and leave to cool completely.
  8. Melt the chocolate either in the microwave or using a double boiler. Dip each biscuit in the chocolate and place on a rack to set. You can leave them as they are or top with chopped seeds, nuts or dried fruit.
  9. Enjoy!

    How can 1 cup be less grams than a 3/4 cup? In your recipe you say 1 cup is 115g and then 3/4 cup is 135g. Can you tell me how much grams of GF Oats I should be using. Thank you

      Because they’re different ingredients with different weights – just like 1 cup of feathers isn’t the same weight as 1 cup of rocks. I can’t get shop bought oat flour here in the UK so I make my own by blending oats into a flour. Perhaps the gluten-free flour has much smaller grains and therefore more fill up the cup making it heavier. I just double checked and the measurements are correct.

    Is it possible to leave out the stevia, and instead add more maple syrup? Stevia gives my daughter av headache, so I can’t use it in baking. Thank you for sharing your recipes! ?

    Hi. Is it necessary to use the xylitol? Can I use something else or just omit it?
    Thank you.

    These sound delicious. I’m wanting to make your wagons wheel recipe. What gluten free flour did you use?
