The Best Gluten Free Cookies

by Katie Bucknell

For those looking for the ultimate gluten free cookie, this is it. This variety is loaded with milk chocolate chips, but you could switch these out for alternatives – like M&Ms, oat and raisin, or white chocolate and raspberry.

This recipe makes quite a significant haul, approximately 16 large cookies! If you want a smaller batch, just half the recipe… but these do keep well in a sealed container.
