Gluten Free Berry Friands Recipe

gf berry friands 1

To celebrate the release of my new eBook Going Gluten Free Permanently, I am featuring three weeks of gluten free giveaways, blogs and recipes.  Doesn’t today’s look rather scrumptious?

On a chilly overcast Sunday, sitting with a nice cup of herbal tea and a warm blanket was in order… which inspired me to bake up a batch of golden gluten free berry friends :-)

Friands are actually super easy to make… Have I mentioned my great liking for recipes where you just toss everything in a bowl and hand mix before baking?  Well this is another one!

Here are a few tips to help you out…

  • When measuring out the dry ingredients, be sure to sift the icing sugar.
  • There’s no need to over whisk the egg whites – merely break them up with a fork or small whisk is all that’s needed.
  • If adding frozen berries, be sure to add them at the very end once all the mixture is combined and then immediately spoon the mixture into a friand pan and pop it in the oven before the berries defrost.  And whether fresh or frozen, fold them in with a delicate hand :-)
  • For this batch, I used Bobs Red Mill 1 to 1 Flour mix and Almond Meal and Oob organic frozen mixed berries. As always, where possible, aim for organic, additive free ingredients to avoid unnecessary health or behaviour issues.
