Sprinkle the work surface with rice flour or cornflour. Turn the mixture on to the floured surface and roll out to 5cm thickness. Cut rounds out with a cookie cutter and place on a prepared oven tray. Brush with beaten egg.

Makes about 500ml jam
500g strawberries, hulled and chopped 125ml Lifestyle Food Xylitol 30-40 ml Lifestyle Food Chia Seeds Combine the strawberries and xylitol in a saucepan over a medium heat. Simmer until the fruit breaks down, 5-10 minutes.
Add the chia seeds and simmer for another 5-10 minutes until thickened. Remove from the heat and pour into bottles. Keep this jam in the fridge.
If the jam is not thick enough for your liking, stir in more chia seeds. It will thicken on standing.
Other berries can be used in place of strawberries. A mixture of strawberries, raspberries and blueberries is nice.
