Gluten-Free Hermit Cookies

Gluten-Free Hermit Cookies

We have been enjoying the challenge of developing gluten-free recipes for professional bakers who use American Almond’s nut flours. Chewy molasses-type cookies work well in gluten free versions. Here we’ve combined blanched almond flour, which absorbs some of the moisture and binds the batter, to enhance a multigrain formula for Gluten Free Hermits.

Here are a few tips when working with this recipe.  Let the batter sit for 15 minutes before you scoop and portion the batter onto the baking sheets.  This time allows the buckwheat, millte and almond flour to absorb the liquid in the recipe. We oike to use a cookie or ice cream scoop to make the cookies uniform in size. Resist the temptation to overbake these cookies.  Gluten-free baked goods can be fragile and crumbly.  Simply let the cookies cool completely before removing them from the baking sheet.   Keeping the moiture in the cookies is the secret to preserving their shelf life.  Make sure they are packed in a tightly covered container. Pack the cookies in layers  separated by waxed or parchment paper to keep them from sticking together.  You can freeze these hermits and then take out as many as you want to eat at a time. At room temperature, eat the cookies withint 3 or 4 days.
