You could say gluten free chocolate cookies are a dime a dozen, but not these. What makes them special is they’re grain-free, flourless, and delicious! They are made without egg yolk, oil, or butter, and can easily be made dairy-free by using Enjoy Life Mini Chocolate Chips or additional nuts. Oh you want them nut free? Skip the nuts and use more chocolate chips. Whatever your allergies are, there’s a work around. For those who are intolerant to potatoes, use tapioca or cornstarch or to replace the one tablespoon of potato starch. You can even use arrowroot if you’re allergic to all other starches.

They are simply addicting!

Chewy Gluten Free Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

I not only broke down and made chewy gluten free chocolate cookies but made them with chocolate chips to boot, for a double chocolate delight! I wanted to duplicate the cookie recipe used in the Pizookies at BJ’s Restaurant Brewhouse. They serve you a warm cookie freshly baked in a large tin topped with 2 scoops of rich chocolate ice cream. They even add a square of Ghirardelli Chocolate. These cookies are to die for! Fortunately, theirs are made with gluten, or I would be sharing one every time I visited there. Due to their calorie content, I would not eat these cookies often, but they are a definite treat for guests and special events. These gluten free chocolate cookies are soft, chewy and rich with chocolate. Add walnuts or more chocolate chips. It’s up to you! Look for Pizookie recipe in tomorrow’s post!
