One of the most tricky elements of cooking for other people when you have a gluten allergy is thinking up something to cook for snacks. if you have friends over for a few glasses of wine on a Friday night you’re going to want to serve up some nibbles to go with the drinks.

  • 200g of tapioca flour
  • one large egg
  • one tablespoon of cooking oil

To begin with preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius, gas mark 6. Next take a large bowl and add to it the tapioca flour, the powdered milk and the parmesan cheese. If you are not keen on parmesan cheese you can opt for a more mild cheese like a cheddar.

Mix together these ingredients until they are combined. Use a whisk to make sure there are no lumps in the mixture.

Now take a separate bowl and add the egg, oil and water to it. Use a whisk to mix the ingredients together and then add to the dry ingredients in the first bowl. Now combine everything together until it takes on a sticky, doughy consistency.
