Orange & chocolate madeleines

Author: Shelly


  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • ½ cup avocado oil or other neutral tasting oil
  • 3 small eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Zest from 1 orange
  • ¾ cup superfine brown rice flour
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • 2 heaping tablespoons tapioca or arrowroot flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Handful chocolate chunks – optional


  • Put the coconut sugar and avocado oil  in a medium bowl and whisk vigorously. Add the eggs, vanilla extract and orange zest (you can zest it straight into the bowl) and continue to whisk until the mixture is thick, 1-2 minutes. Fold in the dry ingredients and continue to fold gently until they’re incorporated.
  • Let it rest in the refrigerator for 30-60 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 375°F/190°C. You can either pipe batter or spoon it into the molds. Fill only ¾ of each mold. Put 2-3 chocolate chunks on some and bake for 10-12 minutes or until browned.
