I have been trying to lose weight lately and trying to eat healthy by cutting down carbs and processed sugar. The only problem is whenever i try to eat healthy, i start craving dessert and my diet goes down the drain, which is why i decided to come up with a healthy recipe for freshly baked chocolate chip cookies.
This recipe is super easy and you won’t even miss the gluten or realize these are suppose to be healthy!!
The key to these cookies is to refrigerate the cookie dough for at least 2 hours and they turn out even better if you let it rest overnight!
You may use any choice of gluten free flour.
You can use baking dark chocolate chunks instead of dark chocolate chips.
Using room temperature ingredients is important so all the ingredients can incorporate properly.
I love the Bob’s Red Mill Gluten free 1 to 1 baking flour, it is by far one of the best baking flour i have ever used. In fact I am looking forward to trying more recipes with this flour.

This recipe is not one I had to work really hard to come up with because its identical to my regular chocolate chip cookies recipe, all I did was changed the ratio of the flour with gluten-free flour and quick oats. This recipe yields 12 cookies.
I hope you enjoy this recipe, please don’t forget to like, comment, and share with family and friends. Please don’t forget to follow me on Instagram and subscribe to my youtube channel and blog.
