Ingredients

  • 125 g unsalted butter 1/2 cup + 1 Tablespoon
  • 40 g golden caster sugar 2 Tablespoons
  • 40 ml maple syrup 2 Tablespoons
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 90 g dried unsweetened blueberries or currants 1/2 cup
  • 50 g rolled oats 1/2 cup
  • 105 g sorghum flour 3/4 cup
  • 40 g brown rice flour 1/4 cup
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • Pinch salt

Instructions

To make the dough

  • Cream together the butter, caster sugar and maple syrup until light and fluffy.
  • Add the vanilla extract and stir to mix.
  • Stir in the blueberries and rolled oats.
  • Stir in the sorghum and brown rice flours, ground ginger and salt to form a dough.
  • Roll the dough into a 20cm log and wrap in baking paper or alfoil.
  • Allow to rest in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, or preferably overnight. The dough can also be frozen at this point.

To bake the biscuits

  • Preheat the oven to 175C (155C fan forced).
  • Line a baking tray with paper and set aside.
  • Using a sharp knife, slice the dough into 8mm slices.
  • Place the biscuits on the baking tray.
  • Cook for approximately 15 - 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Allow to cool on the baking tray for about 5 minutes before transferring the cookies to a rack to cool completely.
  • Store in an airtight container.

Notes

If you cannot find unsweetened dried blueberries, use currants instead.
I have added quite a lot of ground ginger to this dough as I like it. If you are not a huge fan, then reduce the amount of ginger to 1/2 teaspoon.
