These gluten free financiers have a flavorful, tender crumb thanks to brown butter and almond flour, and are studded with fresh figs.
After weeks of sweltering weather with highs in the upper nineties, we’re finally having a “fallish” day here in Chattanooga with highs only reaching the upper eighties. I bake no matter the weather, but feeling a tiny chill in the mornings really makes me eager to turn on the oven. If you’re doing some fall baking this weekend, I highly recommend these gluten-free financiers with figs.
Financiers are a French treat made with brown butter, almond flour, and egg whites. There’s usually a bit of all-purpose flour in there, too, but here I’ve used cassava flour* (*affiliate link–I earn from qualifying purchases.
