My daughter had her birthday and she really wanted “real” (ie: don’t add healthy stuff) cookies to share with her volleyball team. I think these gluten free white and dark chocolate chip cookies were a big hit.
You won’t see many of these recipes on my site. Full on sugar bombs. Easy gluten free chocolate chip cookie sugar bombs with extra chocolate chips!
There, I gave these cookies a real name.
Once in awhile my kids want to have a treat like their friends…one that doesn’t have healthy ingredients. I think they are afraid of someone calling them out on the healthy thing…
Can’t you just imagine that conversation?
“Hey Kaela, is that a chia seed in my cookie? Or, Flaxseed, or did your mom use coconut sugar?”
It would be pretty funny, but for Kaela’s birthday, I decided to do right by her so she could save face in front of her JV volleyball team. Given how much she loves cookies, I should probably make these Gluten Free Chocolate Sandwich Cookies too. They are a great Oreo substitute!
So here’s to you Kaela, in lieu of a another big birthday cake, I am giving you your very favorite cookies. These homemade gluten free cookie recipe is quick and easy, and is perfect for a cookie exchange, bake sale, or for any occasion. You can freeze these gluten free chocolate chip cookies, so make a double batch!
We hope you love these gluten free dark chocolate chip and white chocolate chip cookies!
So for you Kaela….here are your birthday sugar bombs! These cookies were made from scratch just for you :-).
