These gluten-free vegan shortbread cookies are awesomely delicious! They even melt in your mouth like regular shortbread and they are vegan too. I was determined to keep out the unhealthy starches, adding only a little healthy arrowroot and of course no white sugar.
These cookies are one of the many recipes in my Healthy Baking Class

Here are more of my delicious cookie recipes:
Fancy Sunflower Seed Cookies – Gluten Free – These sunflower seed cookies really are fancy, delicious and healthy too! Often cookies are made with lots of butter, white flour and white sugar which are not healthy ingredients. I have developed them with healthy ingredients and no starch.
Delicious Gluten-Free Hermit Cookies – These delicious gluten-free hermit cookies are not overly sweet which is why we like them. The best thing is that they are full of very healthy ingredients and are vegan too. They do have a bit of a drier texture than the ones with wheat in them but don’t be concerned and are still yummy.
