These Gluten Free Macadamia Florentines are the perfect sweet treat, homemade gift or enjoyed with a cuppa with your guests.

The recipe is gluten free and dairy free friendly using simple ingredients you can find at your supermarket. Unlike many store bought biscuits, these are low in natural sugars  using sweetness from coconut sugar and honey. With the added crunch of my favourite Australian Macadamias providing a source of healthy fats.

Simply combine dry ingredients into the caramel like syrup and baking in the oven. Once cool you can make these extra special drizzle your caramel crunch florentines with your favourite dark chocolate. However if chocolate isn’t your thing, you can make these as incredible gluten free biscuits on their own.

To make these vegan friendly use rice malt syrup in place of honey.
