Nut Free, Gluten Free, Vegan Florentines

GBBO week 2 this year was biscuit week. Now, while most biscuits are easily convertible to gluten & dairy free, I wanted to set myself a challenge.

One of Britain’s most loved biscuits (believed to originate from France), the Florentine. A family favourite, especially at Christmas, makes the perfect gift and is loved by most of the family… of course with a hot cuppa!

So, being one to not make things easy I decided that I would make a Florentine and convert it to suit my dietary requirements – free from wheat, gluten, nuts, dairy and refined sugar… Da, Da daaaa! Yep… what a challenge. Baking a Florentine gluten free, wheat free, dairy free, nut free and free from refind sugar is certainly a different kind of bake!
