200 g of Rice Flour
50 g of Coconut Sugar
50 ml of extra virgin olive oil
40 ml of Alchermes liqueur
50 g of dried Cranberries
Q.b Vanilla powder
1 tsp of Baking powder

Soak the blueberries for about 1 hour. After the time has elapsed, remove the water and squeeze them lightly, let it dry on a cloth before using it.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
In a bowl, add all the flours and sugar. The yeast, vanilla and eggs, mix with a fork and then add the liquid ingredients.
Start working the dough with your hands, if it sticks to your fingers sprinkled with a little flour, when it starts to take shape, add the coarsely chopped almonds and blueberries. Form a smooth and compact dough.
Divide the dough in two, make two loaves about 3 cm wide, arrange in a baking tray covered with baking paper. Cook at 180 degrees for 20 minutes. After the time has passed, take them out of the oven and cut them with a knife, shape the cantucci of about 2 cm, place them in the pan and cook for another 4-5 minutes per side. Remove from the oven and let them cool before eating.
