I made these for a friend who was missing her favourite sweet treat since being diagnosed with Coeliacs Disease. Her feedback about them was 'heavenly'!
These are completely grain free, dairy free and sugar free (except for the dried fruit). Give them a go and eat them fresh straight out of the oven or reheat later for the perfect spiced roll.
Prep: 30 mins
Bake: 30-35 mins
Makes 8 scrolls
1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees and line a baking tray with baking paper.
2. In a saucepan, place oil, water, salt, rice malt syrup and bring to the boil.
3. Take off heat and add arrowroot flour and mix until a stick dough forms. Let cool for 3 minutes.
4. Add egg and coconut flour and mix until combined.
5. Place a piece of baking paper of the bench and place the dough on the board and knead with your hand for 1 minute.
6. Place another sheet of baking paper over the top of the ball of dough and roll flat with a rolling pin. You'll want it to be square in shape and approximately 3mm flat (not too thick or the dough will split when rolling!)
7. In another bowl, combine the filling ingredients and then spread evenly on the pastry dough, leaving a 2cm border on all sides.
8. Roll the dough into the log and then slice carefully into 3cm slices.
9. Place evenly, flat side down on a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake at 180 degrees for 30-35minutes, until tops are golden.
10. Melt the coconut butter and drizzle on top as a glaze.

I've seen many remakes of the American classic Oreo cookie, many of them raw, most of them containing dates or coconut sugar, so I set out to make a version with even less sugar!
These deliciously chocolatey (is that even proper English?) biscuits can be made and eaten as is, or you can fill them with whatever filling you choose! I used mascarpone here, which complemented the biscuit really well, but if you're dairy free you could try some whipped coconut cream or even coconut butter for a slightly sweeter filling.
All the rage a few years ago, LCM bars brought back the old classic rice bubble slice which was an absolute favourite at every kids birthday party growing up.
Whether you're making the traditional version or buying the packaged bars at the supermarket, now you can have the same great taste, without all the sugar and additives!
