Gluten-free Chocolate Chip Cookies

What makes a good chocolate chip cookie? To me, first the perfect cookie has to be super soft. I like the fall apart, melt in your mouth, soft kind of cookie. Second, GOOD chocolate is essential. I am very picky about the chocolate I use. Sometimes, the cheap store brand chocolate just isn’t good enough. These are the best gluten-free chocolate chip cookies I ever had.

*As with anything gluten-free, know you can always substitute gluten-free flour for all purpose flour.
**Note: Many gluten-free recipes call for xanthan gum. Here’s the good news: you don’t need it. In fact, omitting it may save you some intestinal pain; I found this out the hard way. Just substitute that xanthan gum with chia or flaxseed.

 Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cups All purpose gluten free baking flour
  • 1/2 cups gluten free millet flour
  • 1/2 cup organic cane sugar
  • 1/2 cup organic turbinado sugar**
  • 1/4 cup flax meal
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon corn starch*
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 6 tbsp apple sauce
  • 2 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

*You can omit the corn starch. Corn starch will make your cookies extra soft, just the way I like them!
**Brown sugar will make your cookies softer as well. You can also use 1 cup of white sugar and omit the brown sugar.

Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Line baking tray with parchment paper. Melt coconut oil.
  2. Mix all eight dry ingredients in a bowl.
  3. Add in melted coconut oil, applesauce and vanilla extract. Mix until well blended.
  4. Stir in chocolate chips.
  5. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and bake in 350 F oven for 7-10 minutes until light, golden brown.
  6. Remove from oven and let cookies cool for 15 minutes before removing from baking tray.
