What better way to celebrate the weekend than with a big glass of almond milk and warm homemade cookies?! Just recently (a little more than 4 weeks ago) I decided to change my diet. There’s plenty of reasons why, but the main one being that I need to find ways to be a healthier ME. So I decided to get rid of the gluten in my diet as well as eating more whole foods rather than process foods. But let’s be honest…I oday I would like to share my first ever gluten free recipe with you… Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies!
1 c brown sugar
1/2 c white sugar
1 c butter
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cocoa powder
2 1/2 cups gluten free flour (coconut or almond flour)
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups chocolate chips
In a large mixing bowl, combine sugars and butter.
Add vanilla, cocoa powder, and eggs to the mixing bowl and mix until combined. Don’t mix too long or your sugars will dissolve.
Add flour, salt, and baking soda to the mixture and combine well.
Fold in chocolate chips.
Cover with plastic wrap and allow your dough to chill in the fridge 20-30 minutes.
Scoop dough onto cookie sheet and bake at 300* for 15 minutes (give or take a few).
Remove from oven and place onto cooling rack.
I tell you what, I was nervous to bake gluten free goodies but after this experience I am so excited to get my gluten free bake on!
Thanks for stopping by friends! Have a great weekend!
