Simple Gluten Free

There’s no need to worry about converting some rice flour and adding some kind of gum to these simple treats. We simply suggest using a gluten-free flour blend like Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten Free Blend.

Be sure to get chocolate chips that are also certified gluten free. We like the ones from Enjoy Life.

Fat Choices

Several years ago, I came across an old article that said the best chocolate chip cookies are made with lard. I have always been a fan of real butter in cookies but wanted to give the lard a try. And my goodness it is really tasty in chocolate chip cookies.

If you’re not opposed to eating pork, lard is a great choice in these cookies.

Butter is an amazing choice and will work perfectly in these cookies so don’t feel locked into the lard.

Optional Add-Ins

If you’re a fan of nuts in your chocolate chip cookies, add about 1 cup chopped nuts to the batter.

While not necessarily traditional 1 cup raisins added to the batter is also quite nice.

Great Keepers

These gluten-free chocolate chip cookies will stay fresh and delicious for about 5 days at room temperature. Keep them in an airtight container.

Freeze the cookies in a bag or container for up to 6 months. Tuck a frozen cookie into a lunch box in the morning and it’ll be thaw by lunch for a great treat.

Tuck these cookies into care packages for a sturdy cookie that can stand up to shipping and will delight the recipient.
