Mama Nibbles: Recipe: Big Chewy Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies of Your Dreams

Recipe: Big Chewy Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies of Your Dreams

This recipe makes about 3 dozen cookies, perfect for freezing. These are thick, chewy and completely satisfying like a great chocolate chip cookie should be. I recommend storing them in a bag or sealed container in the refrigerator and then nuking for a few seconds in the microwave for that "just out of the oven" taste.

2 1/4 cup GF cookie blend (**see below)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp xanthan gum
3/4 cup softened salted butter
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs + 1 egg yolk
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips or chunks
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Heat oven 375 F

1)Sift together all dry ingredients into a bowl.
2)Cream together sugars and butter until fluffy.
3)Add eggs and vanilla then mix well.
4)On low speed add in all dry ingredients until well incorporated.
5)Fold in chocolate chips and optional nuts.
6)Scoop into rounded tablespoon size balls and drop onto ungreased cookie sheet, keep 2 inches apart.
7)Bake for 10-11 minutes until lightly golden, do not overbake.
8)Let cookies rest on sheet for 1 minute and then transfer to a rack to cool completely.

This recipe makes about 3 dozen cookies, these freeze really well. Want to take these cookies to a whole other level? Melt a cup of chocolate chips in a bowl, spread a bit on top of each cookie. Crush up some M&M's and Butterfinger candies then sprinkle those on top and viola! YUM

**Flour blend for my cookies:
I make this in a ziplock bag and then shake to mix.
3/4 cup brown rice flour
3/4 cup white rice flour (can just use brown rice if you don't have this)
2/3 cup potato starch (not flour)
1/3 cup tapioca starch or flour
2 tsp xanthan gum
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup blanched almond flour/meal
