Serves: 20
Ingredients
  • 1 x 15g Oscar Whyte Chocolate (similar size to a standard Freddo Frog)
  • ¾ cup Self Raising Gluten Free Flour
  • 1 Tbsp Grapefruit Zest
  • 2 Tbsp White Sugar (or use Coconut Sugar / Rapadura Sugar)
  • 3 Tbsp Coconut Oil (melted)
  • 1 Tsp Chia Seeds (soaked for 10 minutes in 2 Tbsp water)
Instructions
  1. Soak the chia seeds in water in a small bowl for 10 minutes - stir once or twice to ensure the seeds are forming a gluggy mixture. This is the egg replacement.
  2. Preheat your oven to 180oC and get your cookie cutters & rolling pin ready with a baking tray too.
  3. Rub the grapefruit zest into the sugar in a bowl to release the oils from the zest.
  4. Finely grate the whyte chocolate into the bowl
  5. Add the coconut oil and chia seeds to make a paste
  6. Add the flour and mix with a spoon. Combine it all with your hands.
  7. Let the mixture rest for about 5 minutes.
  8. Roll out thinly on a floured surface and cut out your stars (or other shapes). Place them on your awaiting baking tray.
  9. Pop in the oven for about 8 minutes or until the points of the stars are turning golden.
  10. The consistency of the cookies is similar to a shortbread.
  11. This should make enough for about 15 - 20 stars depending on the thickness of your mixture and size of your cookie cutter. Tip: You can dust with icing sugar if the resulting cookie isn't sweet enough for you.
