Chocolate Chip Cookies (Dairy Free/Gluten Free)

Update: I’ve created a video to show you how to make these gluten free and vegan chocolate chip cookies.

The other day I received a call from Kelly about a potluck at my children’s school. This superwoman who doubles as first grade room parent and I spoke about taking the “luck” out of potluck.

During our chat, we touched on the significance of children breaking bread together and sharing in the most important part of the meal – dessert! To accommodate the different dietary needs of the first graders in my son’s class, I developed a dairy-free, gluten free chocolate chip cookie recipe.

Kelly and I enlisted five moms to bake these tasty cookies for the potluck and I’ve posted the recipe here for them.

  1. I made these with oatmeal flour and mixed dried cranberries in with chocolate chips with a great result.
    I’ve been making these cookies for a few years now and I love them. Today I wanted something with oatmeal flour and didn’t find just what I wanted already prepared. I’ve read enough of Elena’s comments to know I needed to just experiment myself. I put about 1.5 cups of oatmeal into my vitamix to make slightly course oatmeal flour and replaced some of the almond flour with my oatmeal flour. The texture is great. I packed the balls of dough a bit more purposefully than needed with just almond flour. They came out delicious and are as good or better than just the raw dough.
    Thanks Elena and to this community for experimenting and sharing the results.
