Quick And Delicious
Gluten Free Rusks
July 3, 2020

My husbands family are south african and when visiting grandparents, the day always started with rusks and tea.  Something the kids loved when they visited.  However when we went gluten free, there wasn’t a good alternative available until a friend shared this recipe courtesy of Eighty 20 Nutrition!  I hope you enjoy.

Gluten Free Rusks
Preparation:  15 minutes

Cooking time:  approx. 5 hours


  • 3 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract or powder
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, ghee or butter, melted
  • 400g tin coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup raw unfiltered honey, erythritol or coconut sugar
  • 2 cups ground almonds
  • 4 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/2 cup flax meal or ground flax seed
  • 1 Tbsp psyllium husk powder
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1 Tbsp baking soda
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/3 Tbsp ground ginger
  • 1 1/2 cup chopped almonds, hazelnuts, cashews, pecans or whatever you have on hand.
  • 1/2 cup raisins (or cranberries)
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds


    1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius or 350 degrees Fahrenheit
    2. In a large bowl whisk all the wet ingredients together
    3. Add in the dry ingredients and stir altogether until well combined
    4. Line a baking tray approximately 30cm and spoon the mix into the tray then spread evenly
    5. Bake for 40min until golden brown and firm in the middle
    6. Remove from the oven and turn the oven down to 80ºC
    7. Lift the paper and ‘cake’ out of the baking tray and leave to cool for 10 minutes
    8. Cut into approx 10cm X 4cm sized rusks
    9. Place the rusks on the baking tray, leaving a small space between each rusk
    10. Bake for 4 – 5 hours until hard and dry leaving the oven door slightly open.
    11. Remove from the oven and leave to cool completely.  Alternatively place them into a dehydrator on medium for approximately 2 hours to make the rusk harder and drier.
    12. Store in an airtight container and enjoy as a breakfast on the go or a snack anytime.
