Nutribrex biscuits 

I’m on a mission to come up with a plain biscuit style snack for my son to take to school for a play piece. Something a little more nutritious than just flour, sugar & fat. I’ve been using the basic shortbread recipe I like and mucking about with the ingredients. I really liked the ones I made with oatmeal and Sunbutter in them but alas he did not. Today’s effort was made using Nutribix. I’ve only made these once! I’m sharing at special request but I think they turned out pretty well.

Nutribrex biscuits

Makes approx 24 depending on size of cutters

Ingredients

50g Nutribrex (3 pieces)

175g plain gluten free flour

1/2 teaspoon Xanthan gum

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 tablespoon ground flaxseed

75g soft brown sugar

150g Stork block

Instructions

Preheat oven to 180C

Blitz 3 Nutribrex in a food processor (or crush in a bowl) until fine

Add gluten free flour, xanthan gum, flax and sugar to the food processor and combine on a low speed (or stir well)


Chop Stork block into small squares and add to mix along with the vanilla


Blitz until breadcrumbs form and then pulse till the mix comes together (or cut into mix then knead gently till it comes together)

Turn mix out onto a well floured surface, I use baking parchment and squish together into a ball. Divide ball into two and squash down with your hand then roll with a well floured rolling pin (or just use the palm of your hand)

Cut out shapes and place on a baking tray. You may want to line your tray with baking parchment, I didn’t and a couple of my biscuits stuck! I made two trayfuls.


Bake for 8 minutes then rotate the tray and bake for a further 8 minutes.

Remove from oven and allow to cool for a few minutes on the tray before transferring to a cooling rack. My hearts worked better than my stars as the points of the stars got a little crunchy.

Remember you’ve made them for your children and don’t eat them all before they come home from school!
