Its totally a grandma thing to make cookies when the kiddies come over and I knew it was very hard on my mom when we found about Wy’s allergies. She felt very limited with what treats she could make him. I was super happy when we tried this recipe and they actually turned out! I remember telling my mom about it and she quickly replied,” So I can make chocolate chip cookies with him now?!” Yes yes you can mom!
- 2 1/2 cups all purpose gluten free flour blend
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted (or any vegetable oil)
- 1/3 cup dairy free milk (I prefer coconut milk)
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup dairy free chocolate chips
- 3/4 cup nuts, oatmeal or coconut (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grab a bowl, sift together dry ingredients flour, baking soda and salt. In a different mixing bowl, beat together the sugar, brown sugar, coconut oil, coconut milk, maple syrup, and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Add the flour mixture, chocolate chips, and anything else you desire. Stir until you have cookie dough (which you can totally eat bc there are no raw eggs in this!) Drop some cookie balls onto a sheet and pop in the oven for 10 mins. These cookies dont really flatten when they bake so if you want flatter cookies try smashing them down before baking. Makes about 2 dozen.
*A side note if you are new to gluten free baking…there is a different texture. You will be able to tell it in these cookies with how they are a bit chewier than most cookies. But I do love how they don’t crumble to the ground when you pick them up. They hold together and are soft and sweet.
