♥ A new chocolate chip cookies recipe ♥

Few gluten and casein free cookies can pass for the real gluten-buttery thing. This one can. And, unlike many GFCF cookies, you don't need to use parchment paper to bake them! The recipe is from the "Special Diets for Special Kids" cookbook.

Combine 1 1/2 cup white rice flour, 1/4 cup potato starch, 1/2 cup sweet rice flour, 1 tsp. baking soda, 2 tsp xanthan gum, 1/2 tsp. baking powder and 1 tsp. salt. Set aside.

Cream together 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1 cup CF butter (I used Spectrum organic butter flavored shortening), 2 eggs, 1 tsp. vanilla and GFCF chocolate chips (I used 365 Everyday Value Vegan Chocolate Chips).

Mix together and drop by spoonfuls on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes.

I'd recommend hiding these bad boys in the freezer in a container labeled "Brussel Sprouts".


  1. I think I may need to borrow this one....if only I could find those vegan choco. chips. The ones I've used to date appear okay...however we are still reacting to them.....did you find them online or in a store?

  2. Momma,
    I found them at a Whole Foods store in the twin cities (I think they are nationwide). I've also used the Enjoy Life brand which is available on Amazon but the Whole Foods ones were cheaper. ~Kari

  3. Thanks Kari, I'll keep my eye out. I hope your finding some peace and totally understand your decision...I look forward to keeping up with you here....all the best, Shannon
