These chocolate chunk cookies are so simple to make and decidedly less involved than many gluten-free baking recipes. They bake up thin, crispy, and perfectly chewy. These cookies contain no flour or starches, which means they are lower in carbohydrates and, since they are made with cashew butter, are loaded with protein. And, should you choose to use dark chocolate, they’re also dairy-free. As always, be vigilant and check labels — especially when purchasing chocolate, as some contain wheat and gluten.

I tend to over think blogging so my intent is to be short and sweet (good luck to me). Many years ago, I had a recipe for Lemon Almond Cookies. I had copied it from a magazine (specifically from Gourmet, Feb 1990) and kept it all of these years. It is hand written on a recipe card; I added my own interpretation and instructions. At Christmas, I always made these delicious, sweet and crisp cookies.
I’m not sure of the last time I made them but in recent years, with a gluten-free diet, I haven’t even attempted them. This year, I just couldn’t take it and decided to Read More »

This product update is long overdue and it is just the tip of the ice berg when it comes to new gluten-free product launches in 2014. Expo West is just a few weeks away and I can’t wait to be overwhelmed by gluten-free products. Gluten free is slated once again to be one of the top diet trends in 2014 and that means more gluten-free products are being developed. Hopefully, these new products will trend towards health food and won’t be loaded with fillers, sugar, salt, and artificial color/flavors.

When I was first diagnosed with celiac disease the first thing I thought about missing was chocolate chip cookies. My grammy made the most incredible chocolate chip cookies and the thought of not being able to eat them made me sad, so I began my quest to make gluten-free chocolate chip cookies just like grammy’s, and I didn’t stop until I succeeded. When Pillsbury introduced their chocolate chip cookie dough, I thought there was no way they could be as good as my grammy’s, but I was wrong. Read More »
