Chocolate Chip Cookies: A Gluten-Free Recipe
Kids love chocolate chip cookies, but if we’re being honest, moms love them too. This gluten-free version is sure to please both kids and adults.
“Mom, these cookies are really good,” was the comment one of my teenage sons recently made. That’s saying something because he is particular about food, and he eats gluten.
If you don’t have all of the ingredients, you can find them on Amazon or try your local health food store. Especially with rice and millet flour you should look for a brand that is labeled gluten free. Also be sure to read any warning statements. Some companies process gluten-containing grains which can cause a significant amount of cross contamination. Bob’s Red Mill has a gluten-free line of ingredients and is easy to find.
