Guys, ever since my husband admitted he had a problem, we have been living the gluten free life. I have ventured into gluten free land before, but now it is a whole new world. Everything I bake must be gluten free or he can't eat it. Generally he says I just shouldn't bake things because he doesn't need to be eating it anyway. Sometimes though, you just need a treat. I cannot eat all the cookies all by myself!
Okay... I totally could actually... but why should he miss out??
Well, I was on a quest to make a pumpkin chocolate chip cookie that wasn't quite so cakey, but more like a regular chocolate chip cookie. Now, it ALSO had to be gluten free!
I am here to tell you guys... I did it! I found the best gluten free pumpkin chocolate chip cookies!
These gluten free pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are soo good!
Don't judge that it is almost March. Pumpkin can, and should, be consumed year round.
Friendly reminder, pumpkin is good for you.
So anyway, my favorite gluten free flour mix definitely came in handy this time around. Bob's Red Mill makes great gluten free flour blends! This one comes with the xanthan gum already mixed in. It is a 1 to 1 ratio. I like that a lot. It takes very little effort to switch out basic cookie recipes for this great gluten free substitute.
Here is another great thing about this recipe: it is egg free! You are just a short step away from making it vegan. So... if you want to, go ahead and do it! You could switch out the butter for your favorite vegan butter, and use these vegan chocolate chips instead.
I'm lookin' out for you my vegan and gluten free friends!
So, go make these gluten free pumpkin chocolate chip cookies and try not to eat all of them at once! (Although, you totally could. I would not judge you.)
