Quick-Fix Scandinavian Toffee Biscuits for Gluten-Free Vegan Cookie-Lovers On The Run..

A Scandinavian Christmas classic, that is as easy to make as it is moreish!

This recipe is gluten-free, vegan, egg-free and dairy-free

To make about 40 fast-vanishing Toffee Biscuits you’ll need:

  • 100 ml caster sugar ( or normal sugar)
  • 1 tbsp golden syrup
  • 100 grams butter (or vegan substitute – not spreadable) at room temperature
  • 250 ml gluten-free white flour mix
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3-5 drops organic natural vanilla extract

TIP: If you don’t have a gluten-free flour mix at hand, simply sub for 1/3 rice flour, 1/3 potato/corn or tapioca starch, and 1/3 buckwheat flour + 1 tsp xantan gum (or other gum)


  1. Pre-heat oven to 175 c conventional, or 165 fan forced (347 f)
  2. Mix all the ingredients smooth, then roll the dough into finger-thick sausages the length of your baking tray. Flatten the “sausages” slightly.
  3. The dough has a high butter content, so a cool surface (or room) helps the process. Queensland summer plays mean tricks on cookie dough..
  4. Bake in the oven for about 12 minutes. Do not wait for the dough to go brown, it should be light golden.
  5. You wanna cut the lengths into diagonal biscuits whilst they’re still warm, and separate them when they’ve cooled down

And that’s it folks. Say hello to your new favourite biscuit!
