Recipe type: Snacks
Cuisine: Modern Australian
Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • 1 cup almond pulp* or almond meal
  • 1⅓ cups quinoa flakes - (or gluten free rolled oats)
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • ½ cup unrefined or raw sugar
  • ½ teaspoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons light flavoured vegetable oil
  • 4 tablespoons rice malt syrup - (or maple syrup)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup water - (omit if using almond pulp)
Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Line a large flat baking tray with baking paper.
  3. Using a large mixing bowl, add the almond pulp, quinoa flakes, coconut, sugar & rosemary.
  4. Mix with a wooden spoon until just combined.
  5. Add the oil, rice malt syrup, vanilla & water (if using).
  6. Mix until well combined.
  7. Take out golf ball size lots of the dough, form them into a ball & place on baking tray.
  8. Flatten each one with your hand or a warmed fork.
  9. Bake for about 25 minutes, or until browned around the edges. Leave for 5 more minutes if you like them crunchier.
  10. Allow cool on the tray for at least 5 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.
Notes
* - almond pulp is what is left over after making your own almond milk. It is made up of almond flesh & water & can be used like almond meal in most baking. Just keep in mind it will have moisture already in it, so adjust recipes accordingly to avoid them becoming soggy.
