Gluten Free Cookies

It’s no secret I like to bake. Unfortunately, my hobby doesn’t coincide well with our Celiac-induced lifestyle modifications. As a result, my cupcake tins have gone ignored, the sprinkle collection is dusty, and the pastry bags have hardly seen the light of day. I’ve dabbled with gluten-free baking here and there, but the results have mostly been disastrous (banana bread anyone? bana-NO).

The process has been discouraging to say the least–in both taste and texture. Luckily, Graeme has a pretty trendy disease so we’ve had a number of options available to us. I think we finally found a winner though:

So far, I’ve only used this for baking gluten free cookies and in a few recipes as an additive here and there. It’s simple. It’s easy. It’s tasty. And it’s GF AF.

Seriously, it’s easy. I used this flour as a straight replacement for the poisonous wheat flour in the Toll House cookie recipe. We bought our box at a local Sprouts, but it looks like you can order Arrowhead Mills flour online too. These aren’t sponsored links. I just like to bake cookies (read: eat cookie dough) and share the love.

Do you have any gluten free baking products you recommend?

Lately I’ve been trying very hard to enjoy focusing on a moment and a memory – which funny enough, can be a little difficult with a well-focused camera in the way.
