Pastries, especially bite-sized ones, are meant to be enjoyed by all. Nothing beats having a sweet on-the-go snacks to energize your afternoon. Unfortunately, due to the wheat content in most pastries that triggers gluten intolerance, some of us are having restrictions on pastries.

Intolerance/allergy to gluten affects up to 6-7% of the population, but Time magazine puts it that about 30% of Americans avoid eating products that contain gluten. Complications of being intolerant or allergic to gluten include bloating, abdominal pains and other intestinal issues. This explains why there is now a growing need for gluten-free pastry alternatives.

Rise of Gluten-Free Pastries

To cater to the emerging gluten-free market, some stores such as coffee shops are now offering gluten-free pastries. However, there are still not much options available as the market still is just adapting. This explains why many resort to making it by themselves at their homes. Thankfully, there are now growing recipes online that make this easier, which includes this recipe on gluten-free tea time financiers.

One of the easiest pastries to make is the financier. All you need to do is to mix the ingredients, pour it in a mold, bake, and voila! You already have some delightful snacks on hand.

Prep and Bake Time

Prep time: 35 min
Ready in: 35 min
Yields: Serves six people

Ingredients for Tea Time Financiers

  • 55g hazelnut power
  • 20g mango puree
  • 145g icing sugar
  • 50g rice flour
  • 60g hazelnut oil
  • 12g inverted sugar
  • 2g baking powder
  • 1g salt


  1. Mix all the ingredients into a large bowl, and ensure that it's evenly mixed. No whisking needed. The resulting texture will be watery, so don't panic. To make it organized, you can begin mixing all the wet ingredients first before adding all the dry ingredients. As a tip, you can put all the dry ingredients in a closed container and shake it, before mixing with the wet ingredients. This will ensure that you get an even distribution for your mixture.
  2. Prepare the baking mold, preferably rectangular-shaped ones that are bite-sized. Pour out the mix into the mold. You can use one that is made of silicone, so that it will be easy to remove the financiers from the mold.
  3. Bake at 170°C for about 15-20 minutes, or until the financiers turn brown and lightly crisp.
  4. Serve and plate.
