It's so nice to see sunshine this morning. Hello Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend.
These coconut biscuits are the perfect weekend morning treat, and not too bad for you either. It's especially perfect when you happen to have all the ingredients in the cupboard. ;) I love the light coconut flavour, but the orange butter pushes them over the top. So. Good.
Coconut Biscuits with Orange Butter - makes 9-12 biscuits
3/4 cup brown rice flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup tapioca starch
2 tablespoons arrowroot starch or corn starch (I used arrowroot)
2 teaspoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons guar gum
1 tablespoon baking powder
pinch of salt
1 vanilla bean (seeds only), slit down the length, seeds scraped out.
1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup coconut milk
2 eggs, beaten
Preheat oven to 375f /190c. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flours, tapioca starch, arrowroot, sugar, guar gum, baking powder and salt. Whisk until well combined. Make a well in centre of dry ingredients and add vanilla, eggs, butter and coconut milk. The dough should be fairly wet and sticky.
Drop spoonfuls of dough on baking sheet, about 1 inch apart. I made mine a little larger this time, so I got 9 from this batch.
Bake for about 15-20 minutes, depending on size, until golden brown on bottom and lightly coloured on top. Allow to cool a little, on a wire rack. Serve warm with orange butter. Mmmm.
about 1/4 to 1/3 cup of unsalted butter, softened
zest of one large orange (best to use organic when using zest)
about 1 tablespoon honey
Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl. That's it! Easy.
That's it for now! Have a lovely day.
