The Best Gluten + Dairy Free Chocolate Chip Cookies


What do you even say when your hiatuses are as long as mine? I AM WILDIN' I AM SORRY!

The past year has held so much action. Business things with The Perfect Bite - employment changes, heartache (yeah, again, I know - I know), loss, grief. You name it.

And sometimes I feel super self-helpy and I can wake up and cross things off of all of my 'lists' and feel like I am moving in the right direction - and other times I feel like that one time Andy from The Office went on that sail and forgot all the AHA moments he had on the boat after he came back.

Actually, I am mostly that version of Andy. 😢😃

In the winter around Christmas I was super looking forward to kicking up the business momentum - only to have major kitchen issues and have a complete shut down.

So my only outlet has been a bit of a rough patch WHICH IS WHY I AM SO EXCITED TO BE HERE WITH A NEW RECIPE FOR Y'ALL.

I am going to try and not talk as much.

How am I doing? TERRIBLE? Seems about on pace for 2020 let's do this. 

 Gluten free cookies always have this issue of being too soft, I feel.

Or hard as rock. Good for abs, bad for cookies.

These are nicely crisp around the edges and soft in the middle.

If you put them in a container they will soften over time though!

So if you want that crispy chewiness then freeze the scooped balls of dough and just bake as needed.

Baking hacks, y'alllllll.

I added toffee bits to these BUT they are not dairy free I do not believe. I keep everything in deli tubs marked with tape (as seen) in the bakery so ...I cannot remember the exact ingredients.

So in keeping with the whole dairy free thang just omity-omit those bad boys. Or don't. I assume you know your body better than I do?

Read on for the recipe 😋
