METHOD

DIFFICULTY: Easy 6 HRS

Combine all ingredients except the honey and coconut oil in a food processor and blend to a fine crumb.

Melt the coconut oil with the honey in a small saucepan until warm but not hot.

Slowly add the honey and coconut oil mixture to the food processor on a slow speed until all the ingredients are combined.

Shape into 25 evenly-sized balls. Place on a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper, making sure you leave a small gap in between them. Using your fingers, flatten the bites slightly.

To make the topping, place the gluten free flour in a small mixing bowl and slowly add the water and oil to the flour, whisking by hand until you get an elastic paste consistency.

Spoon the mixer in to a piping bag with a very small nozzle and pipe the cross on the top.

To finish, either place the baking tray of bites in a dehydrator for 12 hours at 46°C, or in a conventional oven at gas mark ¼  or at 110°C for 6 hours.

The finish will be a moist bite with crispy cross topping, great for a healthy Easter snack.
