"Healthier" Hamantashins (Gluten, dairy and cane sugar free)

For those of you who have just celebrated Purim, there is nothing worse than seeing all these delicous treats that you can't enjoy due to food intolerances. So here is my recipe for 'healthier' hamantashins that cater for all requirements (the egg can be replaced with a tablespoon of tahini for vegans or those with an egg allergy).

Here is my recipe for ‘healthier’ Hamantashins that all can enjoy!


1 ½ cups rice flour
1 ½ cups potato or tapioca flour
125 g coconut oil
1 egg
½ cup maple syrup
½ teaspoon gluten free baking powder
Jam of choice or choc/ almond spread

Mix flour, coconut oil, egg, maple syrup and baking powder together in a bowl until it forms a smooth batter.
On a board sprinkle some rice flour to stop pastry sticking.
Roll out a handful of dough and use a cup to cut into an even circle. Place ½ teaspoon of filling (jam or spread of choice) into the centre of the circle. Fold over 3 sides of pastry to create a triangle with jam showing in the centre. Do this by folding over one edge at a time.

Place hamantashins on a lines baking tray and put in over at 180 degrees Celsius for approximately 20 minutes until pastry golden brown.

Allow to cool and enjoy!

Makes approximately 24
