Refined-Sugar Free Shortbread

I love when you make a couple of healthier substitutes to a traditional recipe, and it still turns out just as good! Shortbread is a classic Christmas treat and this version uses honey instead of sugar, and brown rice flour instead of white. This method is for a thermomix, but you can use the same ingredients to make without. 

Ingredients:

  • 2.5 cups wholemeal plain flour
  • 1/3 cup brown rice (use rice flour for non-thermomix method)
  • 250g butter, chopped
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla paste

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees
  2. Mill brown rice in Thermomix - 2 minutes, speed 9
  3. Add remaining ingredients and mix 10 seconds, speed 7
  4. Remove dough onto cooking mat or bench and roll out until approx. 1cm thick
  5. Use cookie cutters to cut into shapes and put onto lined baking tray
  6. Bake for approx. 15 minutes, and leave to cool on tray for 20 minutes before transferring to cooling rack
