Haman-Taschen Gluten Free Plus Recipes

gf Fruit Hamantaschen 

FOR THE COOKIE
1 cup (110 g) cashews
1 egg
1 cup (95 g) almond flour
Pinch sea salt
½  tsp baking soda
3 TBS (45 ml) maple syrup


¼  cup (28 g) coconut flour

FOR THE BERRY FILLING
1 cup (140 g) frozen raspberries (or fresh, if in season)
¼  cup (60 g) coconut palm sugar
½  lemon, juiced

FOR THE APRICOT FILLING
½  cup (160 g) fruit-sweetened apricot preserves
1 TBS (8 g) poppy seeds

Preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C). To make the cookies, place the cashews into a food processor or blender and pulse until you have a “flour.” Next add in egg, almond flour, salt, baking soda and maple syrup. Blend more until all ingredients are well combined and form a dough.


Spoon the dough onto a piece of parchment paper and begin sprinkling in the coconut flour, 1 tablespoon (7 g) at a time. The dough will be sticky to start, but the coconut flour will take care of this.

gf Lekvar (Prune) Hamantaschen



• 11 oz Prunes (dried plums), pitted/chopped
• 1 cup Raisins
• 3/4 cup Water
• 1/3 cup Lemon Juice
• 2 cup Blanched Almond Flour
• 1 cup Arrowroot Flour, plus 1/2 cup for dusting
• 1 tsp Salt
• 1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
• 1/2 cup Pure Maple Syrup
• 1/4 cup Organic Coconut Oil, melted


  • In a medium sauce pan, add the prunes, raisins, water, lemon juice, and maple syrup. Heat over medium heat.
  • Bring filling to a boil, while stirring. Continue to stir frequently, while "mashing" the filling with a wooded spoon.
  • Once the liquid has reduced, and you have a thick filling of plump prunes and raisins, remove from heat and set aside for filling the cookies.
  • In a large mixing bowl, stir together the almond flour, arrowroot, and salt.
  • Add in the vanilla extract, maple syrup, and melted coconut oil. Stir until all ingredients are combined and you have a ball of cookie dough.
  • Place ball of dough on to a sheet of parchment paper, adding additional arrowroot flour and kneading the dough until it is firm enough to be rolled and cut into shapes.
  • Place another sheet of parchment paper over the dough, and roll into a 1/4 inch thick layer.
  • Dust dough with additional arrowroot, as well as dip the cookie cutter in arrowroot flour, so the dough does not stick.
  • Carefully cut circles in the dough, and remove the excess dough from around the circles.
  • Add about a tsp of filling to the center of the cookies, and carefully fold three sides in, making a triangular shape. Pinch the corners in to seal the cookies.
  • Transfer the parchment to a baking sheet, and bake cookies 350 for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and place on a cooling rack.
  • Repeat this process using a fresh sheet of parchment, for the remainder of the dough, until you have used all of the cookie dough.
