Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

GF Chocolate Chip Cookies

We love these cookies in our house, not only are they GF but they are low glycemic using the coconut sugar so they work great for diabetics.  You can replace the coconut sugar for brown sugar if you want it to be sweeter.

Also, these cookies are great for kids to make as well.  Often, I have my 5 year old make these not using a mixer at all.  She pours all the ingredients in a bowl and just mixes everything.  They still turn out fine.

If in a rush you don’t have to refrigerator them either but I think refrigerating them they just turn out a little better.

I usually keep these in a glass container outside of the fridge but you can store them in a fridge and they last for at least a week.
