Just by reading the title of this post, I think you understood that this is another of those recipes for who like me is gluten, lactose, corn….everything intolerant! But please know that on my blog you can also find recipes for “normal kind of humans” just click here to check out the other recipes 😉
These biscuits were born as an experiment due to the fact that, since Chickpeas flour is not a flour that can raise, I was already prepared that the outcome wouldn’t have been that good…but actually, they are!! Of course, if we compare them to normal biscuits there is no doubt, these ones would lose the battle…but for who can’t even touch normal cakes due to allergies or intolerance this recipe is a great substitute! 🙂
So here you go with the recipe:
300 gr chickpeas flour (or any other kind of flour if you do not have problems)
50 gr tapioca flour (or cornstarch if you do not have problems with corn)
6 gr yeast powder
60 ml of Maple Syrup or Honey
40 ml Olive Oil (or seeds oil)
100gr raisins (or chocolate drops if you prefer 😉 )
Pinch of Salt
Beat the eggs with the oil, honey/syrup and a pinch of salt. Then add the flour previously mixed with the yeast and the tapioca flour, and blend everything together.
When the dough has a homogeneous look, add the raisins or chocolate drops and keep mixing.
With a spoon divide the dough in a baking tray (as when you’re doing cookies) – the recipe should be for 14/16 biscuits.
Then bake them in the oven at 180°C for 20 minutes. They will be cooked really quickly so check them quite often because the timing also depends on the kind of oven you have 😉
Due to the type of flour, I’d suggest keeping the biscuits in a glass/plastic box if you’re not planning to eat them all the same day you’ve cooked them. Also, if after a day they’re a little hard to eat like that, I sometimes heat them in a toaster so that they’re a bit war and more pleasureful to eat 😉
As I said earlier, of course, they’ll not taste as normal biscuits but, said from a person who has done many experiments with alternative flours, these are not so bad!! 😀
Hope you like them and let me know in the comments below if you try it or if you have other recipes to share! 🙂
