Sluttishly Gluten Free: Chocolate and Ginger Biscuits

I found out I was a Coeliac nearly 3 years ago now, for a while I found it very restricting, no bread = no sandwiches, no dough = no pizza, no flour = no cakes or biscuits!! But over the last couple of years I've learnt to adapt very easily. There are lot of gluten free products about now and with a little experimentation, practice and research you can find some great recipes that make sure you don't miss out. In fact I regularly enjoy gluten free bread from the supermarket, a cheeky frozen pizza, and even more naughty gluten free biscuits and cakes. You can find some great products in most of the mainstream supermarkets but it is even better if you can make your own. These are some delicious ginger biscuits, really easy to make and excellent with a cup of chai.

Makes about 16 biscuits

You’ll need:
  • 200g gluten free plain flour (I used Doves)
  • 150g butter (soft)
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 2 nuggets of stem ginger, chopped
  • A teaspoon of ground ginger
  • 50g of dark chocolate, chopped
Make it!
  • Cream the butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy.
  • Add the flour and ground ginger and mix until it comes together as a dough.
  • Add chopped ginger and chocolate and stir into mix.
  • Get out some cling film, form dough into a large sausage shape on cling film (think salami size) and then wrap in cling film and roll in to cylinder shape.
  • Chill dough in fridge and preheat oven to 160 degrees for fan or 180 otherwise. (Gas marks 4/5)
  • Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Once the dough has chilled and the oven is hot, slice your sausage shape into cm rounds and remove cling film.
  • Place rounds on baking tray and bake for 25-30 minutes.
  • Serve cooled with a nice cuppa!
