Almond Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

Almond Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

I make these cookies every time we meet with one of our close friends, whose daughter is gluten intolerant. She loves them.

It took me a few tries to get the recipe right. The result are not only gluten free cookies, but they are also absolutely delicious.


Dark chocolate makes for a healthier alternative.

    Simply put, these cookies are delicious! We are eternally grateful to you for thinking about our daughter. We all love and enjoy them here. We know how challenging could be to follow a gluten-free diet, as so many foods contain gluten, even those that are not obvious gluten sources. Thanks, you are the best and these cookies are awesome!
