My mom has had Celiac for years. I try out the occasional dessert hoping to please her palate, but I haven’t made these for her yet. My kids are currently GF, DF in an attempt to see if it helps some rashes and behaviors. We’ll see how that goes. :)
Since they’re kids, I still want them to have the occasional treat, so I played with a few GF recipes and made it dairy-free myself. If you are dairy-free but can’t handle ghee/clarified butter, you might try lard or shortening as a substitute.
Also, I personally like cookies best out of the freezer, but these were decent as dough, fresh and out of the freezer. Bonus!
Gluten-free, Dairy-free Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup ghee/clarified butter
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup cane sugar (or you can use regular granulated)
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla
3 1/2 cups Namaste gluten-free flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup chocolate chips
Cream ghee and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla, beat until smooth. Add 2 cups GF flour, salt, and baking soda, beat again until smooth. Add remaining flour and beat or mix by hand until combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Bake for 9-11 minutes at 350. Don’t bake too long; you want them a little lighter so they’re chewy out of the freezer. Enjoy!
