Sequilho is a typical Brazilian biscuit that as a vegan I though I would never eat again but with the help of flaxseed that when mixed with water can be used as a egg replacer, I managed to veganised this recipe the other day and the results was better than expected. This biscuit is light, sweet and totally addictive. It's a perfect combination with tea or coffee.
150g grated coconut
3 1/2 cups cornflour
3 tbsp flaxseed
9 tbsp water
1 cup spread (vegan margarine)
1 3/4 cups light brown sugar
1 - Mix the flaxseed and the water until it gets a bit gooey.
2 - Mix the flaxseed/water mixture together with the rest of the ingredients and knead until dough forms a ball. If it gest to sticky add a bit more of cornflour.
3 - On a floured surface shape small portions of the dough into long "snakes". Cut
the snakes into 1.5cm pieces
4 - Bake it on a pre-heated oven at 180C for 15 minutes
