experimental matcha nori shortbread


Been getting extra-experimental in the kitchen these days: dietary restrictions = inspiration! The challenge: make a splendid unique cookie without: sugar, gluten, nuts, eggs. I came up with these fun little matcha nori shortbread cookies. Still working on them - next time I'd eliminate the nori as it became quite chewy compared to the nice crumbly cookie. These were made with: brown rice flour, tapioca starch, matcha tea powder, organic butter, black sesame seeds and xylitol - an interesting naturally-derived "sugar" that won't spike blood sugar levels, feed candida, or cause cavities - still testing baking with this sweetener...
