Allergy Friendly Chocolate Chip Cookies

Over the last couple of years we have incorporated more gluten and dairy friendly recipes into our family's Sunday baking. And this one's a classic fav. Lightly sweet, has a great crunch and chew to it, and satisfies that "oh gotta have it" need for a good chocolate chip cookie. Enjoy!

Pre-heat oven to 375

Mix/sift together and set aside 

2 1/2 Cups gluten free flour blend (Namaste or Pamela's)

1 tsp. Baking soda 

1 tsp Salt

1 tbsp. xantham gum (bob's red mill or other)

2 Tbsp Tapioca Starch

 

 

 

Beat together until creamy 

1 cup dairy free butter (I use smart balance vegan buttery sticks)

3/4 cup sugar

3/4 cup packed brown sugar 

1 tsp vanila extract 

 

Then add one a time, beating well after each addition

2 eggs

 

Add dry mixture to wet and blend well.

 

Slowly mix in until evenly incorporated

Roll or shape into 1 inch balls and bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly golden brown on the ended. Let sit on warm cookie sheet until cool. Yields about 36 cookies
