Food Fun Friday - Gluten Free Recipe Chocolate Chip Cookies

Gluten Free Recipe for cookies

We are always on the lookout for yummy gluten free recipes for our family to enjoy. We have had a tough time finding a gluten free cookie recipe. We have tried all the pre-made mixes and they are fine, but you can always tell they are gluten free. I stumbled across this recipe from The Wannabe Chef and it sounded delicious. We gave it a try, made a few modifications and we were so pleased with the results.

These cookies are so good that we served them to some non gluten free folks and they thought they were great and were shocked when we told them they it was a gluten free recipe. These are a must whether you are on a gluten free diet or not. The almond meal really gives these a wonderful nutty flavor.

Read more to see how we made them.

You will need:
  • 3 cups of almond meal
  • 1/2 cup of room temperature butter
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/2 cup of chocolate and white chocolate chips
Makes 18 large cookies. If you want smaller cookies you'll get a lot more.

Gluten Free Cookie Recipe

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream the butter and sugar together until the mixture is smooth. 

Add in the eggs and mix. 

Add the almond meal next.

Now add the vanilla, baking soda and salt and mix until blended. 

Finally, add your chips and mix so they are evenly distributed. 

Place a sheet of parchment paper on a baking sheet and drop spoonfuls of cookie dough a few inches apart. We pushed down each of the dough balls to get a flatter cookie.

Bake at 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes. You will want to take them out when they appear golden brown.

Easy Gluten Free Cookies

Serve with glass of milk or your favorite beverage. The best part of the cookies is they are slightly crunchy on the edges and soft in the middle. Hope you enjoyed this gluten free recipe!
