Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip CookiesThis is a great gluten-free chocolate chip cookie recipe.  If you use mini chips, you get chocolate in every bite.As far as I am concerned, gluten-free living is fine as long as I can still have a few old stand-by foods.  I need a decent slice of toast (I love Three Baker’s Bread), I need pancakes and I need chocolate.  Cookies, brownies, cheesecake, I don’t care what form it comes in, but I need, I need, I need!!!Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe is adapted from the cookbook, Easy Everyday Gluten-Free Cooking: Includes 250 Delicious Recipes.  It’s a great all-round gluten-free cookbook for all levels of gf eating and cooking.  I don’t eat refined sugars as a rule, so I substituted coconut sugar.  Use brown sugar if you want.

  1. Never mind a bread recipe, I’m just impressed you made such good looking gluten-free cookies! i’m new to gluten-free baking, is there a specific brand of all-purpose GF flour you recommend? And what’s it comprised of, if not wheat?

    1. I really like Namaste Perfect Flour Blend. I stay away from those that have bean flours in them…I don’t like the taste. Mostly, they are rice flour with tapioca and sorghum. Sometimes the flours contain potato flour or arrowroot starch.

  2. I have a couple of friends that are gluten free, either by choice or by diagnosis so I am always delighted to have a few recipes to treat them in my repertoire. Your chocolate chip cookies look wonderful and I imagine that everyone would enjoy them, even those who don’t need to eat gluten free.

    1. This would be a good recipe for them. Though I don’t think it’s possible to totally clone a wheat cookie with gluten free flours, this one was mighty tasty!

    1. These were definitely very chocolately. I think using the mini chips helped to get the chocolate into every bite.
