Healthy macrobiotic cookies. They have a light taste but are addictive! You won't be able to stop eating them.

Ingredients: 20 cookies - about 4 cm round

Brown rice flour
12 g
Cake flour
120 g
2 pinches
◆Grapeseed oil
40 g
50 g
◆Maple syrup
20 g


1. Prep: Preheat an oven to 170°C. Put the flour and salt in a bowl and combine well with a whisk.
2. In another bowl, put the ◆ ingredients. Mix well with a whisk until it emulsifies evenly.
3. Pour the step 2 liquid mixture evenly into the bowl with dry ingredients. Using a rubber spatula, mix from the bottom.
4. Once everything is mixed and you can't see any flour in the mixture, form it into a ball.
5. Place plastic wrap on the working surface first, then put the dough on top. Cover with another plastic wrap. Roll the dough into 6 mm thick.
6. Remove the top plastic wrap. Cut out into shapes and place them on the baking tray. Bring the left-over dough together again and repeat this process to use up the dough.
7. Using the thick end of a bamboo skewer, make eyes on the cookies. And using the edge of a teaspoon, make a smiley mouth on it.
8. Bake in the preheated oven at 170°C for 15-16 minutes.
