Fluffy Butter Cookies

Sugar Free and Gluten Free


  • 2 cups gluten free plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon gluten free baking powder
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • ⅓ cup Perfect Sweet® xylitol
  • 175 grams Nuttelex
  • 2 tablespoons rice milk or soy milk
  • ½ a vanilla bean


  1. Line 2 trays with baking paper and preheat a fan forced oven to 180°.
  2. Using a small sharp knife slice the vanilla bean length ways and open it up, then using the side of the knife gently scrape the seeds from inside the bean
  3. In a small bowl combine the vanilla seeds with some of the Perfect Sweet® xylitol and break the seeds up using the back of a spoon
  4. In a mixing bowl combine the nuttelex, Perfect Sweet® xylitol & vanilla seeds
  5. Using a beater cream these ingredients together for 1 minute until pale and fluffy
  6. Sift baking powder and flour over nuttelex mixture
  7. Add milk and egg then mix till just combined
  8. Roll heaped teaspoon size balls and and place spread apart on tray, allowing a little space for spreading. Flatten slightly using two fingers (be warned this is a sticky, messy process, do not be tempted to add extra flour. Also to achieve the look in the photo don’t remove batter off your hands in between each cookie, as this stickiness will create the prickly effect)
  9. Bake for 10 minutes, swap trays around and bake for a further 5 minutes
  10. Remove from oven and leave on trays to cool. 

And there you have it – a deliciously healthy sugar free and gluten free butter cookies recipe that will surely leave your guests wanting more. Enjoy!

"Just wanted to say that I have now tried both packets of baking mixes.  First the brownies (all now eaten) and this afternoon I made the lamingtons.  Im soooooooo impressed and sooooooo happy that I have finally found a tasty, not too expensive, low carb sweet treat to have made up in the freezer.  I will never be without a packet in my cupboard !!!!!!!!!!" - thanks  Lindy

"I was given chocolate bake mix by a friend, left it in the cupboard for ages assuming it would be average tasting. Made brownies this evening and will definitely be buying more and recommending it to all my colleagues in the health industry." - Regards, Sandra
