Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
This is our favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. It’s easy to prepare and you wouldn’t even know these cookies were gluten free if you didn’t bake them yourself. Serve them with tall glasses of cold milk (or soy milk, if you don’t tolerate dairy well).
When purchasing the ingredients to make these gluten free chocolate chip cookies (or any other gluten free dessert recipes), make sure all the ingredients you buy are gluten free. For instance, chocolate sometimes contains small amounts of gluten, so make sure the chocolate chips you buy are gluten free.
Combine the gluten free flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and xanthan gum in a large mixing bowl. Mix well.
In another bowl, combine butter, brown sugar, and white sugar. Beat with an electric mixer until creamy. Then add eggs and vanilla. Beat until well-mixed.
Add flour mixture a little at a time, continuing to mix, until all is well-mixed.
Drop chocolate chip cookie dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for ten minutes.
