Gluten Free Jaffa Biscuit

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.

Okay, recipe.

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.

Add
1 egg
1tsp baking powder GF

Combine.

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.
