Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

I would have to say my favorite cookie and sweet treat of choice would be a Chocolate Chip Cookie!

There really is nothing better… so buttery, gooey, with rich chunks of chocolate mixed throughout!

All I need is a big glass of cold milk and I’m a happy girl 🙂

I have noticed as I’ve gotten older that I have a sensitivity to gluten… not a full on allergy but it just doesn’t agree with me. As you can imagine chocolate chip cookies being my fave I needed to find a way to make them that was not gluten free but also healthier.

These gluten free chocolate chip cookies are everything you could every want in cookie but of course gluten free so your belly will be thanking you.

With just the right amount of chocolate chips these cake-y cookies just hit the spot and at under 200 calories for 3 cookies you really can’t beat that!
