chewy gluten free chocolate chip cookie Enter our latest Blender Giveaway!

This recipe by Alton Brown has frequently been mentioned to us by those in the gluten-free community as being one of the best chocolate chip cookie recipes out there, never mind they are gluten-free!

So, of course, we had to test it for all of our gluten-free Blender Babes out there! Our lovely Recipe Tester Cindy LOVES to bake, using her Blendtec as a mixer since she has both the Fourside and Wildside Jar.

If you have just a Fourside jar, pour the wet ingredients into a mixing bowl with the dry ingredients to incorporate by hand the way you do with a Vitamix.

If you are also egg free and dairy-free, you can modify this recipe with an egg substitute & use 1/2 the amount of coconut milk (1 tablespoon) instead of the whole milk.

Also if you have a scale use it, as the dry measurements are slightly different than the weight measurements. The recipe makes a large chocolate chip cookie, we like to place ice cream in the middle for a chocolate chip cookie sandwich, but we also enjoy making these smaller cookies – perfect as a sweet scooby snack!

Alton Brown’s Chewy Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

As more and more people are recognizing they have gluten allergies (aka celiac disease – becoming seriously ill from gluten) or gluten intolerance (gluten gives you icky side effects for a few days), people are constantly asking us for the best gluten-free recipes.

Luckily for us and our recipe testers, gluten-free baking has come a long way from the hockey pucks that people use to end up with when trying new gluten-free recipes several years ago (YAY!) We found this amazing recipes & tips for gluten free baking and are slowly testing how to make them in our blender!
