Following my popular Stollen recipe I was asked for a recipe for Gluten Free Stollen Bites so I’ve adapted my recipe so that everyone can enjoy gluten free Stollen Bites that can also be made dairy free and vegan too.

Servings: 12 Stollen Bites
Calories: 179 kcal
- 50 g caster sugar
- 25 g vegetable fat I use Trex
- 25 g butter or dairy free spread I use Pure plus extra for brushing
- 50 g gluten free breadcrumbs
- 75 g mixed fruit I always add an extra table spoon of candied peel
- 40 g ground almonds
- 2 tbsp brandy
- 1 tsp almond extract
- 0.5 tsp cinnamon
- 0.5 tsp clove
- 1 egg or 1 flaxseed egg 1 tbsp flaxseed in 50ml water
- 125 g gluten free self-raising flour
- 125 g marzipan rolled into a long snake shape about 2cm wide
First, you’ll need to make your breadcrumbs, choose your usual gluten free bread and blend into fine crumbs, add the brandy, extract, egg or flaxseed alternative and fruit, leave to one side.
In a mixer combine the caster sugar, vegetable fat and butter/dairy free spread until light in colour.
Add the breadcrumb and fruit mixture and mix thoroughly.
Change to a dough hook if you have one and now add the ground almonds and flour, the mixture should come together into a sticky but manageable dough.
At this point you can keep for the dough for later and it will stay fresh in the fridge for a week wrapped in clingfilm/wax wrap
Roll out your dough into a rectangle to approx. 1/1.5cm thick. To make it more manageable you may wish to divide the dough into two and roll two rectangles.
Brush liberally with melted and cooled butter or dairy free spread and place your roll of marzipan in the centre.
Fold the stollen dough over the marzipan like a mini sausage roll and place onto your greased/silicone baking tray.
Brush again with butter or dairy free spread and pop into a preheated oven on 200°C/180°C fan for 10-12mins, your stollen may brown due to the butter you’ve brushed on the surface so make sure it doesn’t catch.
Remove from oven and immediately brush with more dairy free spread/butter. Dust liberally with icing sugar, wait 5mins and if the fat starts to bleed through, dust again.
Allow to cool completely before serving.
