This recipe is adapted from Granola Cookies from the White on Rice blog. It makes about 24 biscuits.
I am often looking for a snack which is not too sweet, is low FODMAPs, and contains oats. These preferences must be rare, because I seldom find them. So here is my first attempt at inventing a treat like this. The biscuits are chewy and a bit American-biscuit-soft, but pleasantly so. Soft, but not particularly doughy. They taste salty sweet and wholesome. Like an every day biscuit snack, rather than a Special Treat.
- 1/2 cup sorghum flour
- 1/2 cup buckwheat flour
- 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups quick oats
- 3/4 cup salted butter, at room temperature
- 1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup roughly chopped or crushed walnuts
- Beat sugar and butter together.
- Add vanilla extract and eggs.
- Add flour, xanthan gum and baking soda and mix well (mixing thoroughly activates the faux gluten effect of the xanthan gum).
- Add oats and walnuts.
- Put heaped teaspoonfuls on baking trays.
Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 13 minutes (at 5,000 ft altitude - beware all you low altitude bakers!).
