I regularly make my Chocolate Digestive recipe and they are always a big hit. They’re really good and recently made another batch and as they cooled, my husband walked into the kitchen and said the smell was great and could he have them? He’s a coeliac and I felt really bad having to say no, these are not for you 🙁
So the hunt began to find a workable recipe for gluten free digestive biscuits and this is a combination of two I found and together, they worked perfectly. I also like that the ingredients were ones most coeliacs or gluten intolerant bakers would have at home. You will find this recipe along with some other great biscuit and cookie recipes in my Gluten Free Baking from the Heart Recipe Book (available here)
There was one ingredient that did surprise me – Chinese Five Spice! Yep I know it gives a little heat at the back of the throat. Perfect! You can smell the spice while the biscuits are baking but it’s not identifiable once baked. You could replace the Chinese Five Spice with some Mixed Spice if you prefer.
