I heard you! After I posted my vegan madeleines on Instagram a while back, many of you have been asking me to make a gluten-free version. And here is my proven recipe for gluten-free vegan madeleines. After many tries and more patience, i finally got them just right and ready to share the recipe with you.
These Madeleines are free from gluten and butter. They are made with almond flour, coconut oil, cacao powder and brown sugar. They are almost perfect, each Madeleine is firm, has the perfect texture with crunchy edges, so delicious!
Gluten-free chocolate almond madeleines (vegan)
- 1 cup almond flour
- 3 tbsp cornstarch/cornflour
- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 2 tbsp cacao powder I used @happywayau
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 4 tbsp melted coconut oil
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp unsweetened apple sauce
Preheat oven to 180 celsius. Grease madeleine mould and set aside.
Sift almond flour, cornstarch, cacao powder, baking powder, salt and set aside.
In a large bowl combine apple sauce, melted coconut oil, milk, sugar, vanilla, Gradually add dry mixture to wet and Mix until everything is incorporated, but don’t over mix. Place batter in fridge to rest for 20-30 mins until batter is thicken.
Spoon batter into moulds. Bake at 180 celsius until madeleine springs back to the touch, an inserted skewer comes out clean and the edges begin to become a little golden. My madeleines took about 30 minutes. (i got a bigger and deeper mould, if you’re using a regular size madeleine pan, check for doneness at 15 minutes)
Let madeleines cool for about 2 minutes in the pan and then invert them onto a cooling rack to cool completely. Dust with powdered sugar if desired. Enjoy.
