OFS Gluten free Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe!

Food allergies are something I understand, if you’ve ever sat across a table with me at meal time you probably already know that.  I’m severely allergic to corn, and due to it’s excessive over use in almost ALL process/packaged products it makes my eating life challenging – to say the least.

It’s difficult, often times it’s frustrating, but it’s my life and I’m ok with that.  My family is healthier for all the things I’ve learned about nutrition and food processing along the way.

This weekend was the annual Father/Kids camp out with Corey’s company and like I do each year I was busy in the kitchen Friday baking treats to take.  As I sat contemplating what to send with our girls to share, I remembered that one of  our friends was planning to be there with his son (and daughter) who is allergic to gluten & soy.

He’s such a little trooper about not being able to have what other kids have, he too at such a young age has learned the life of a food allergy sufferer and thanks to some great parents handles those situations well.

Trooper or not though, the idea of him not having a treat this weekend too made me sad.  So I did what any kitchen loving, allergy suffering Mama would – I tried out a new cookie recipe for him.

I initially started with a gluten- free chocolate chip cookie recipe I found online but quickly decided I didn’t like how it was written.  No biggie, I just made a change here, tweaked an ingredient (or 5) there and voila, it was ready to head for the heat.

As it baked I nervously watched the oven.  What if they didn’t turn out?  What if they caught fire, or didn’t bake or worse yet – the kids didn’t like them.

I was pleasantly surprised, not only did they look like a chocolate chip cookie, they tasted like one too and they received the Corey & Bethany stamp of approval!  (Audrey doesn’t like chocolate chip cookies)

The weekend turned out to be a success and while the cookies all came home (because my fantastic 3 forgot to share!  Something about being too busy playing) I’m still really pleased with the recipe.

A few of you asked for it on Facebook and without any further adieu here it is!  My first, and only Gluten-Free chocolate chip cookie recipe!

OFS Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: PT12-15M

Yield: 30 Cookies

OFS Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie

Ingredients

  • 1/4 C Butter, softened**
  • 1/2 C Brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 C Cane or granulated sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/4 C Vanilla coconut milk (in the carton, NOT the can)**
  • 1/2 tsp Pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 C Rice flour
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 - 3/4 C Gluten free chocolate chips
  • Dash Cinnamon, ground

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 375°
  2. Cream together butter and both sugars until creamed
  3. Add in egg & vanilla, beat until light & fluffy
  4. In a separate bowl combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon & salt
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until almost combine
  6. Drizzle in coconut milk. Depending on how your dough looks you can add more or less milk. It should look be a firm, not sticky dough.
  7. Add chocolate chips. Begin with 1/2 c and decide if the remaining 1/4 C is desired
  8. Roll dough by spoonfuls (I used heaping teaspoons) into balls and place on either stoneware or parchment lines baking sheets.
  9. Bake for 12-14 minutes until tops are golden brown.
  10. Remove from oven, cool on pan 5 minutes then transfer to cooling rack
  11. **Butter is necessary to maintain the flavor and quality of the cookies**
  12. **We use So Delicious Vanilla coconut milk, which is found in the refrigerated section at the grocery store. Do NOT use sweetened, canned coconut milk. It's not at all the same**

I am always far to nervous to tweak a cookie recipe, but when it comes to cooking I have no issues. So glad you tweaking turned out yummy!
