These cookie type biscuits are gluten free and dairy free, deliciously light and very soft they almost have the texture of cake not a crispy biscuit but they are amazing moreish all the same. They have an almost buttery taste and texture with the crisp crunch of coconut thrown in. They won't be in the biscuit tin for long!

70g cornflour
Pinch xanthan gum
1/2 tsp gluten free baking powder
70g dairy free sunflower spread
1 tbsp golden syrup
40g caster sugar
50g desiccated cocounut

3. Mix together well until you get a stiffish dough.

4. Line a baking tray with grease proof paper.

5. Drop a dessert spoon full of the mix onto the baking sheet, and push down lightly, dont let it go to flat you want it to still be fairly round and raised.

Dairy free sunflower spread can be replaced with margarine or normal sunflower spread if dairy free isn't required
