This chocolate wafer biscuits are so yummy and versitile oh and of course gluten free. You can eat them as are, smear some peanut butter in between two or even make some nice cream to smash between them as a delicious dessert.
It looks like there are a heap of steps to make these but they are actually really simple and they sort of take us back to the original baking processes that are sometimes missed these days with all of our whiz bang kitchen appliances.
- 1 + 3/4 cups buckwheat flour
- 1/2 cup cacao powder
- 3/4 cup coconut sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
- 1/4 teaspoon himalayan salt
- 1/2 cup butter or ghee (melted)
- 1 egg
- 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- splash of water
- Pre heat oven at 150 degrees
- Mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl (flour, xanthan gum, cacao powder, coconut sugar, him salt) Make a well in the middle of the mixture.
- Pour in all wet ingredients (butter or ghee, egg, vanilla extract) and combined well. You may like to use your hands to fold the mixture together.
- Use a splash or two of water if need be to help the mixture stick.
- Divide the dough into two equal parts, and roll each out between two sheets of baking paper until the dough is about half a cm thick (the thickness of a one dollar coin)
- Pull back the top sheet of parchment paper on one piece of dough. Use a cookie cutter to cut the mixture. Remove the surrounding dough, and set it aside. Transfer the rounds to a baking tray lined with baking paper.
- Gather the scraps, roll them out again, and cut more rounds. Repeat with the second piece of dough.
- Place in the oven for 8 minutes one side. Flip and cook for 2 - 3 minutes on the other side.
- Cool on a drying rack completely.
