Carbs 26g | Fat 3g | Protein 1g
Sugar 15g | Fibre 0g


155g gluten free plain flour
25g cocoa powder
1/2tsp baking powder
50g sunflower spread
130g caster sugar
1 egg
1/2tsp vanilla extract
45g icing sugar


1. In a large bowl mix together the flour, cocoa and baking powder. Add in the sunflower spread and rub together with your hands to make a breadcrumb consistency.

2. Add the caster sugar, egg and vanilla to the flour mixture and beat well until you get a dough. The dough should be soft, almost like a cake batter but slightly thicker.

3. Turn the dough out onto cling film, wrap up and place in the fridge to firm up slightly for around 30 mins.

4. Split into 12 pieces, roughly the size of walnuts. Roll the balls in the icing sugar and place on a greased and lined baking tray, leave a good gap between each so they have room to spread.

5. Place the baking tray in an oven preheated to gas mark 3 and bake for 12-15 mins. Remove from the oven and place on a cooling rack to
cool and firm up.
