April A to Z gluten free vegetarian treats: C is for cookies

I have seen a lot of recipes for rainbow cookies which use Smarties but unfortunately they have wheat in the shell of aren’t suitable for me 🙁 M&Ms are fine though! They do tend to splurge a bit and the colour leaks into the cookie so they don’t looks quite as pretty but they taste fab!

4oz butter or soft margarine
4oz light brown sugar
2 tablespoons golden syrup
6oz self raising flour
3oz M&Ms

Beat the butter/marge and sugar together with a wooden spoon.
Beat in the syrup.
Mix in half of the flour.
Mix in the other half of the flour and the M&Ms.
Shape into small balls (15 to 20) on a baking tray.

Bake for 12-15 minutes GM5.
Leave to cool on the tray and then eat!



  1. Ooh yum! I’m dairy free and very much missing cakes and biscuits so I completely understand the difficulty of finding replacements that work. Thank goodness for Stork 🙂 I might try these but replace with some dark chocolate chips and see how that works. Thanks for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove
