Hi and welcome back to LivingCoeliac.
I can’t be the only one who is loving all the Easter products showing up in the Supermarkets now? If you are looking for an easy guide to finding gluten free Easter products in the UK, you can check out this post from CoeliacUK. I always make sure to check out their website before purchasing any new product.
I was so happy to find out Mini-Eggs are gluten free in the UK. I have always loved this tasty chocolate treat. Last year, I used them in every Easter recipe including my Chocolate Banana Loaf. I also baked them in my truly decadent chocolate Mini-Egg Cookies. You can find the recipe here if you are interested.
While I loved those cookies, I have a soft spot for Vanilla Cookies so wanted to share this Mini-Egg Vanilla Cookie Recipe with you this year, I find the vanilla in the cookie brings out the richness of the mini-eggs without being too much.
To make this recipe, add melted butter to caster sugar and dark brown sugar. Once combined, add gluten free flour, egg and vanilla extract, mixing to combine. I then add crushed mini eggs before molding into cookie shapes and baking.

I just love how easy this cookie recipe is. Just make sure the butter is melted before adding the other ingredients or the cookie dough will not combine properly.
Just the perfect treat this Easter. I hope you love this recipe. If you re-create it, please let me know by tagging me on Instagram using #livingcoeliac.
