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
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!
