The biggest thing i’m missing going Gluten Free is all the baking and sweets I have to avoid! I came up with this recipe for Gluten Free Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies, they’re quite tasty.
- 1 stick butter
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup shredded coconut
- 1/2 cup Gluten Free All Purpose baking flour
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350. In a microwave safe bowl melt butter for 45 seconds. Stir in sugars and vanilla extract and mix with a wooden spoon. Next stir in egg, and baking soda. Next add in the GF flour and the shredded coconut. When everything is combined, fold in the chocolate chips.
- Line cookie sheet with parchment paper, and roll dough into 1 inch balls, keeping 2 inches between the cookies (they spread out while baking). Bake for 12-15 minutes, keep in mind once they turn brown on the edges it's time to take them out! Let cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes then transfer to a cookie cooling rack.
