Gluten/dairy/sugar-free Hamantaschen! mmm

This picture is making me hungry. We avoid sugar + gluten + dairy, but don’t want to cook things that require a bunch of crazy expensive ingredients. This recipe seems simple enough… I may experiment with buckwheat (instead of almond) flour, coconut (instead of grapeseed) oil, and various sorts of fillings such as poppyseed + agave mmmm.

Raspberry Hamantaschen
2 cups blanched almond flour
½ teaspoon celtic sea salt
2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
2 tablespoons agave nectar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon water
some raspberry jam

– In a large bowl, combine almond flour and salt
– In a smaller bowl, combine oil, agave, vanilla and water
– Mix wet ingredients into dry
– Chill dough in refrigerator 1 hour
– Roll out dough between 2 pieces of parchment paper ¼ – ½ inch thick
– Cut dough into circles (size of your choosing)
– Make a light indentation with your forefinger in the center of each circle
– Drop ½ teaspoon of raspberry jam into the center of each circle
– Fold the dough in to create 3 sides; pinch each of the 3 corners to form a triangle shaped cookie
– Bake at 350° for 8 minutes until cookies are golden brown around the edges
– Serve
