Gluten free banana and nutella empanadas sprinkled with sugar.
I had a new jar of Nutella on my shelf for a weeks now so I thought it about time I try something new with it so, off to google images I went and found a recipe for these. I am forever baking cakes, cookies and cupcakes so fancied a bit of a change. They were pretty simple to make, the only thing is the assembling, wrapping and marking the dough was the most time consuming as I made several small ones so if I were to make it again I would get my husband to help.
I hate banana with a passion but still wanted to make them gluten free to see if the flour would still work with the recipe. Cakes and cookies are fine with GF flour but now I am starting to try new things I am beginning to find recipes that do not work so well with it. Because of my hate for bananas I wouldn't even have a bite but my family soon ate them all up, my eldest going as far as to say "these are the best thing you have ever baked" My husband said that was going a bit for but they were really good. Now I know the recipe works wonderfully and local strawberries are in season I might just have to make them again so I can eat them with a fruit I do like!
Another great thing is you can freeze them before baking for a month so you can make them plenty ahead of time if you were making them for a certain occasion.
