Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

The more I’ve read about gluten, the more I try to avoid it. Lately, though, my children have been giving me the “you’re neglecting us” look while peeking into the empty cookie jar with big sad puppy dog eyes. Thus began my search for a gluten free recipe that was as “clean” as possible, but still tasted yummy. I believe I found it first try! Beware, if this is your first time using coconut sugar as a brown sugar replacement it does give the cookies a slightly different texture. That being said, even my picky 16 year old son that has been fighting me tooth and nail on this clean eating trip loved these cookies.

This recipe was adapted from this one I found on Yummly
