We’ve been gluten free for the majority of this year and it has only gotten easier and easier. I no longer drool over all the gluten-filled desserts (I have a major sweet tooth) because we’ve found so many really awesome gluten free options! By the way, if anyone knows how to make GF pan dulce (Mexican sweet bread) send it to me! Not the recipe. The bread. Like ship it overnight. K thanks!
Since people seem to be interested in me sharing them (gotta love the Instagram polls! – you can follow me @darlinglittlelessons), I’ll start posting some of our favorite GF recipes from time to time.
One of the first GF treats I tried out was chocolate chip cookies because one cannot live without them.
I’ve adapted the following recipe from Meaningful Eats. Click over to Erin’s post to see the original recipe! She makes so many amazing gluten free recipes!
I’ve also included links to all the products I use. You can click on any of the photos below to shop for them through Amazon!
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3 cups blanched almond flour
- 1 cup chocolate chips of choice
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat.
- In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, coconut oil, and brown sugar. Add the vanilla and eggs, mixing until incorporated. I use my Kitchen Aid handheld mixer.
- Mix in the baking soda and salt. Add the almond flour, 1 cup at a time, beating well after each addition. Fold in the chocolate chips with a wooden spoon.
- Form the dough into tablespoon rounds and place on the lined baking sheet about 3 inches apart. Bake for 15 minutes, or until golden brown around edges. We like ours darker making them more chewy, but the cookies will be “done” by 13 minutes. Allow to cool on racks and enjoy! Yields 2 dozen cookies.
Guys, these are so, so good! I’m not a huge baker but they’re super easy to whip up and even easier to slam 5 of them before you can gain control of yourself. haha…but seriously.
Couple of things – you can add walnuts if you wish. We don’t particularly like nuts in our cookies though. You can sub coconut sugar for the brown sugar, but I have never tried this. You can also sub almond meal for the blanched almond flour.
Let me know if you try these out and save one for me! Thanks for reading!
