Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

chocolate chip cookies

Last week my son needed to take snack for a home school class he attends once a week.  I made these cookies, and because I am the teacher for half the time, I was nearby when everyone ate them.  The kids were outside, and I wasn’t close enough to hear all the comments, but I did hear things like, “These are really good.”  Later my son said, “Everyone really liked the cookies.”  That’s the kind of report that makes any mom smile, but when you know they liked your gluten-free cookies, and didn’t know the difference, it can really make your day.  Not that I was surprised, I wouldn’t have sent them if I thought they weren’t good, but it’s always nice to have confirmation.  And you know kids will be honest.  I hope you enjoy  them too.

If you don’t have millet flour, you can use additional rice flour to replace it.  Or try whatever flour mix you have on hand.  They will probably turn out well.

Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Combine the dry ingredients in a small mixing bowl.  I combine them with a whisk.  In the bowl of your mixer, beat together the butter and sugars.  Add the eggs and vanilla and beat well.  Gradually add the flour mix and mix until incorporated.  Remove the bowl from the mixer and stir in the chocolate chips.  I think I only used 1 1/2 c. in this recipe, but use more if you like.  I find that sometimes they are too much chocolate and not enough cookie when I use 2 cups.

Drop the dough by spoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake at 375 degrees for 8 – 10 minutes.  Remove to a wire rack to cool.  Enjoy!

I made some cookies w/ Namaste Cookie Mix and Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips (GF/DF) for a demo at the store where I work. No one could tell they were GF!
 
I think gluten free is the new black. And gluten free chocolate chip cookies are like the little black dress. Always in demand.
 
Well, the Washington Post did say Celiac Disease was "in" for 2010, so maybe it is the new black :)
 
Yum! I love chocolate chip cookies - because honestly, who doesn't? :) I haven't made them since going gluten-free though. Should definitely give it a try!
 
Linda--These look great! I have several really good choc chip cookie recipes, but there's always room for one more. ;-) I'm like you about the right balance of chocolate to batter. There's a chocolate chip overload cookie recipe and it calls for 24 ounces of chocolate chips. Yes, two bags. There's just no way I could make those. Yes, I'd try one, but I wouldn't make them.

Love Iris' comment--how true!

I love gluten free chocolate chips cookies more than the glutinous version. These look great!
 
Linda,

Those look wonderful! I love Millet and need to use it more often, thanks for sharing!
