There is nothing better than a fresh soft-baked chocolate chip cookie warm from the oven. These Classic Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies are vegan, top-8 allergy-free, low in sugar, and super easy to bake! This recipe is just what you need to warm hearts and bring out the smiles!
The humble chocolate chip cookie. Such a simple, standard, staple dessert, but there’s always a story behind everyone’s favorite. I’m always up for some of my favorite quinoa chocolate chip cookies, but there is something to be said about a traditional soft, simple, warm and cozy chocolate chip cookie. They are such a nostalgic cookie, just evoking memories and feelings of love and hugs!
The chocolate chip cookie just seems so fitting as we find ourselves deep into THE cookie season and the season of joy and giving. I’m definitely one of those people who shows their appreciation and thanks through food. Whether it’s birthdays, holidays, or random acts of kindness, I always use my love for cooking and baking to express my gratitude. To me, when you give a gift to someone it should be intentional, thoughtful, like giving a piece of yourself to that person.
Running out last minute to buy a generic gift card or worse (a picture frame or candle!), is not the way to show your love to someone one! When you actually take the time to cook or bake for someone, your time, energy, thoughts, and love are so tangibly and intangibly true. The person on the receiving end knows you put thought into the gift, while you were planning it, making it, and then giving it to them. Plus, when you bake something, like cookies, and give it someone as a gift, they literally can taste the love…always that secret ingredient.
There’s also something so wonderful about cooking and baking for someone else too. Whenever I can give my creations to my family and loved ones it feels so good! I usually like to leave those surprise goodies at random for my family to find. I left these chocolate chip cookies over at my mother’s house for her to come home to for a very sweet surprise. I get so excited (and anxious) to find out what she thought. Rave reviews for these sweet and soft gluten-free chocolate chip cookies that I had to bake a few more batches for the rest of my family!
I didn’t mind one bit making multiple batches of these cookies. I had to perfect the recipe first and then when I got requests for more, I was fully compliant. They’re so easy and simple. My favorite and trusty Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour, sugar-free sweetener, applesauce, vegan butter, vanilla extract, and of course plenty of chocolate chips! Remember that chocolate chips cookies were one of the only things my mom baked with my brother and I? Well, making this classic remake, now gluten-free, vegan, and allergy-free, gave me ALL the nostalgic vibes and a perfect throwback to give to my mom!
