Ingredients
  • 200 g organic brown rice flour
  • 80 g almond meal
  • 30 g potato starch
  • ½ tsp vanilla powder
  • 130 g sugar (I used half rapadura sugar + half xylitol sugar)
  • 120 g neutral coconut oil (soften, not liquid)
  • 80 ml dairy free milk
  • 1 egg
  • Pinch of salt
  • For the coating:
  • 200 g chocolate
  • Desiccated coconut, frozen dry raspberries (or crushed hazelnuts)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven 180 degrees.
  2. In a bowl, mix all the dry ingredients: flours, almond meal, vanilla powder, sugar, salt. Then add the coconut oil, the milk and the egg. Mix well until smooth.
  3. Fill a pastry bag with a star shaped nozzle and pipe the biscuits directly on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Bake for about 12-15 minutes until the biscuits are golden.
  4. Allow the spritz to cool down entirely.
  5. Melt the chocolate in a bowl and soak the biscuits. Sprinkle with desiccated coconut, crushed hazelnuts or other favorite topping. Let stand on a grid or parchment paper until the chocolate hardens.
