Apricot Honey Nut Cookies Recipe (Gluten Free)

This recipe is from my gluten free recipes index page:

My Apricot and Honey Nut Cookie Recipe is totally irresistable!

Not only is it delicious to people who can not tolerate wheat and gluten, it is also a very tasty cookie indeed even for people who enjoy eating wheat.

My cookies are soft in texture yet light and fluffy too, the honey sweetens the cookies perfectly and the apricot peices taste like sticky little jams in between each bite.

This Apricot and Honey Nut Cookies Recipe does not take long to bake so why not give them a go and taste the delicious cookies for yourself?

Ingredients for my gluten free cookie recipe:

2 Level Tbsp Low Fat Margarine
4 Tbsp Honey
10 Almonds (chopped)
5 Walnuts (chopped)
7 Dried Apricots (chopped)
4 Tbsp Gulten Free Self Raising Flour
2 Level Tbsp Skimmed Milk (or milk alternative)
1 tsp Vanilla Extract

Getting Started on Jeena's Gluten Free recipe (Apricot and Honey Nut Cookie Recipe)

Place your margarine and honey into a bowl and mix well.

Once mixed well add your choopped nuts, apricots and vanilla extract mix well then add your flour and mix well again.

Add your 2 level table spoon of milk and mix well.

Place table spoons of the apricot and honey nut cookie mixture onto a greased and floured baking tray and place into a pre-heated oven at 180C for 15 minutes only.

Take your cookies straight off the baking tray with a spatula and place onto a cooling rack.

These looks really simple. Just a question. If I don't have self raising flour, can I use normal wheat flour with some added baking powder?

These looks really good.
I will try them and then if they are easy and good I will take the recipe to the Teen Center and bake with the teens.
It's great that you have this site + the picture you are using helps a lot.

FUn with new ideas :-) thank you

hi jeena, so glad i have found you! i have just recently been told i need to eat gluten, dairy, egg free for at least 3 months - and cound be indefinately - fingers crossed on at least being able to introduce the dairy & eggs back in. just wondering you have many recipes with margarine in them - what would you reccomend as a substitute? i know that i can use nuttelex or other vegan margarines, it's not that i can't eat it but rather that i've heard all margarines are just so bad for you. another is soya flour which you use in many recipes. regardless of my food intolerances i try to stay away from margarine & any soy products as they have such a bad rap. what are your thoughts on this and can you reccomend any substitutes? thanks!
