Chocolate Chip Cookies

There is nothing better than soft and light chocolate chip cookies that melt in your mouth, and guess what... they are gluten free!


These cookies are a great way to treat yourself! They are super easy to make, once you have prepped the dough all you do is wait 60 minutes and then simply place them into the oven for 12-15 minutes. So kick back, relax and wait for the magic to happen!


These cookies taste best straight out of the oven, especially because I am a sucker for gooey chocolate.


For these cookies, I chose Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1 to 1 Baking Flour. This particular flour already contains xanthan gum. Xanthan gum is required in gluten free baking because it provides the elasticity and acts as a binding agent for the flour, more importantly it is responsible for holding onto moisture, which is exactly what gluten free flour often lacks. Find yourself a gluten free flour blend that has xanthan gum already added, but if it doesn't, it's not the end of the world! Simply buy xanthan gum separately from your local supermarket and add about 1/4 tsp to your recipe.


To make this recipe dairy free:

  • Swap butter for Nuttelex

  • Swap the chocolate chips for dairy free chocolate chips
