Notes on ingredients

You can find a complete list of ingredients with exact amounts and instructions in the recipe card below.
  • White rice flour: Rice flour is a delicate neutral tasting gluten-free flour that I use quite often in gluten-free baking. 
  • Oat flour: Oat flour is a nutritious, unrefined flour that lends great texture to baked goods.
  • Potato starch: Potato starch is a pure starch extracted from potatoes. It has a light, powdery, flour-like consistency. It improves crispness resulting in a more delicate texture of the cookies. It is naturally wheat-free and gluten-free.
  • Ground walnuts: Ground walnuts have a rich nutty flavor that makes them perfect for baking into cookies.
  • Coconut sugar: It can be subbed with brown sugar or regular white sugar (for a less healthy version).
  • Coconut oil: It provides a rich taste and more flavor overall.
  • Rice milk: Substitute it with soy milk, oat milk or almond milk.

Hi,
May I ask about the texture of the cookies? Soft or crispy?
Thanks!

As far as I can remember (and I made this recipe almost two year ago), cripsy on the top and chewy on the inside.
