It’s orange season here in Australia and our orange tree is showering us with its first fruit.
Last week I made GF carrot and orange cake, still tweaking the recipe but I will share soon, and today I just made Jaffa cookies. The combination of chocolate and orange is just amazing, just deserving to be turned into a cookie.
They have a crunchy shell with a soft centre, just like the lolly. I have added flaxseed/linseed meal for fibre and almond meal for protein. I always try to make anything with a little bit of goodness.
125g softened butter
1/3 c Panela sugar, or brown
2 tsp orange zest
Cream all of these together until light in colour and fluffy in texture.
1tsp baking powder GF
1 c GF plain flour blend
1/2 c almond meal
1/3c linseed meal
1/3 c dark choc chips.
Mix in flours first and then choc chips. Refrigerate until firm.
Preheat oven. 180c degrees.
Roll dough into balls.
Press down slightly and bake for 20 mins or until browned.
