I’ve been trying for the past couple of months to make gluten free cookies that don’t taste gluten free (gluten free flour has a very distinct taste that’s hard to hide). For those who have cooked/baked with gluten free flour, you know how hard it is to work with as it absorbs liquid so quickly. BUT, I think I’ve finally found the perfect recipe after many, many changes!
If you are gluten free, and even if you’re not, I highly encourage you to bake these delicious treats. They’re chewy, rich and (somewhat) good for you!
What you’ll need:
– 2 cups gluten free flour
– 1 tsp salt
– 1/2 tsp baking soda
– 1 cup butter (softened)
– 1/2 cup white sugar
– 1 cup brown sugar
– 2 eggs
– 2 tsp vanilla extract (pure or artificial)
– 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (you can also do white chocolate, butterscotch and/or mix them all up!)
First, combine flour, salt and baking soda in a bowl and set to the side.
Next, blend butter and both sugars until creamy. The only way to do this properly is with a mixer, you won’t have the same result if you do it by hand!
When it is light and fluffy, add your eggs and vanilla.
Once blended, gradually add the flour, baking soda and salt mix to your liquid. Finally, add your chocolate chips!
Now, take about 1 tbsp of dough, roll into a ball and lightly flatten.
Bake for 7 minutes and enjoy!!!
Happy eating 🙂
