V/GF Chocolate Chip Cookies

My go-to all year round treat! I love these chewy chocolate chip cookies and they can be made with or without any add ins and they're still so delicious. Adjusted from Milo and Oats, I have been cooking these for years!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups gluten-free flour blend (I like oat flour or a rice flour blend)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter (Melt or Earth Balance work well)
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 tablespoons ground chia seed (or ground flax)
  • ⅓ cup applesauce
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1½ cups chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Whisk together gluten-free flour, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In a small dish stir together applesauce and chia or flax seed. Set aside to gel
  4. Mix butter and coconut sugar together until light and fluffy. Stir in applesauce mixture and vanilla. 
  5. Stir in chocolate chips.
  6. Scoop dough balls onto a cookie sheet and bake 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Don't over bake, or you won't get the delicious soft and chewy center!
