Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

For chocolate chip lovers, there is nothing better than a warm, chewy, chocolate chip cookie. I’m a sucker for them and enjoy sinking my teeth into a good one.

The problem for me is that the Starbucks Chocolate Chip Cookies that I sometimes get are $1.60 and pack 390 calories. Ouch!!!

So, my lovely wife Alisa went to the kitchen to make a healthy, yummy chocolate chip cookie that meets our needs. This is that special recipe for gluten-free cookies that you’ll love!

These chocolate chip cookies are so good that I’ve had them for breakfast. ; )

Here’s the how-to for making Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

      My wife, Alisa, has had issues with gluten and yet she is a chocolate chip cookie lover. She went to work on figuring out how she could still have them and this is what she came up with.

      They are yummy and we hope you enjoy them.
