These gluten-free chocolate chip cookies are perfect for those who are craving cookies, but have to avoid gluten!
Do you ever get the urge to bake at random times? I got a hankering to bake last night. My HVAC unit decided to die on me. And since it was pretty chilly, I figured that it was a great time to let my oven heat things up a bit. That was my excuse to bake! I decided that I really wanted to make gluten-free chocolate chip cookies. I dug out one of my old family recipes for regular chocolate chip cookies and went to town.
These cookies are really tasty! Of course, that wasn’t a complete surprise to me. The family recipe that I used has been a part of my family for decades! It has always been a family favorite. The best part is that they don’t taste like they are gluten-free, which is a big bonus. This is the brand of chocolate chips that I use because they are soy-free (unlike so many other brands). Luckily, they are really good and I love them! If you’re looking to reduce sugar content, then use coconut sugar to sweeten. You can also use this brand of chocolate chips which is sweetened with stevia.
These cookies freeze well! So make a double batch and put some in the freezer for those times when you have a cookie craving!
