Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Kids love chocolate chip cookies, but finding one that is gluten free and allows your child to enjoy the treats that other kids take for granted isn't always an easy task. 

Even some chocolate chips are processed on equipment that is not always free of the allergen that troubles them. One answer to this is using buckwheat flour to create recipes. Despite its name, buckwheat is not true wheat.

 It is gluten free, according to the Celiac disease website and offers a lot of protein and iron on top of being gluten free. Creating chocolate chip cookies from buckwheat, which is a good substitute for traditional flour makes them a tiny bit heavier but allows your kids to have the treat that they want, and you want to give them.

You will need:

  • 1 and 1/4 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp. soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (remember to check the package to ensure they are gluten free)

To make:

Combine the dry ingredients except the sugar Whip together softened butter, egg and sugar Mix the sugar mixture with the remaining dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.

Stir in chocolate chips 

Drop by rounded teaspoons into a lined cookie sheet.
