Gluten Free Cookies


These are very simple cookies, perfect for those who love “soaking”; .. also, they are gluten free, if this could be helpful to someone…


(for 2 trays of biscuits)
200gr rice flour
50gr corn or potato starch
2 tablespoons of soy flour
200gr of soy margarine or soy butter
1-2 tablespoons peanut butter (or almond or hazelnut)
1 pinch salt
150gr sugar (I used cane sugar)
2-3 tablespoons water or vegetable milk
1 teaspoon powdered yeast

Melt margarine in a double saucepan, incorporate flour, sugar, salt and yeast; blend this mixture with margarine, water (or vegetable milk) and peanut butter. Let the dough rest in refrigerator for half an hour, preheat the oven to 180 degrees, roll out the dough on a sheet of baking paper and cut biscuits with your favourite mold. I simply roll the dough and cut out rectangles, as, being gluten-free, the dough is not very elastic (and I don’t have the wonderful cookies-maker thingy, which I will look for asap !!!!).
Bake cookies for 10-15 minutes.
Variations: You can replace 50gr of rice flour with the same amount of chocolate or chestnut flour (with which, in my opinion, the perfect combination is the peanut butter).

    I am just getting into cooking more vegan recipes. This looks great! I never heard of vegetable milk before. Do health food stores sell it? Thanks for the great recipe and for the education, too! I’m wondering if I can use almond butter with this recipe. Is almond butter vegan?

    Hi Carla, and a warm welcome from VeganWiz. I’m trying to answer your questions. Vegetable milk are all those kind of milk which, as the name says, come from vegetable. There is plenty of them. The most common is definitely soy milk; and you find soy yogurt, soy cream and soy butter as well. Other kind of milks come from oat, quinoa, almond, rice. Virtually you can produce milk from cereals and nuts: you may prepare, for instance, homemade cashews milk. To answer your question, yes, healthy food store do have these kind of milk: you will certinly find rice and soy milk (which I’m pretty sure you can find at the super as well), almost certainly almond milk. And yes, almond butter is definitely vegan, as it doesn’t come from animal. Every product which does not come from animal (not only food, but also clothing, detergents, and so on) is vegan. I hope this helps. Thank you for your comment, and if you want to join us with some of your recipes (vegan, of course) you’re more than welcome!!!
