Four Delicious Gluten-Free Cookie Recipes

Craving something yummy? Try these four gluten-free cookie recipes this weekend!

Gluten-free and Vegan Gingersnap Cookies

These gingersnaps are full of flavor.

They’re chewy, moist, and have a crackly top, as any gingersnap should.

If you don’t like your gingersnaps chewy, no worries, just bake them a bit longer and they’ll crisp up perfectly!

Dreamy Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Balls Recipe

Gosh, those cookies were good. Rrr… I mean it was a great bonding experience.

It seemed like Auntie Lesley always had a fresh batch in the jar just waiting for my sister and me. They were doughy, and melty, and buttery…

When my Mom would ask my sister and me why we liked Auntie Lesley’s cookies over her own, we’d always say “but Mom, they’re not cookies. They’re pie crust balls with chocolate chips. They cannot be compared!”

Gluten Free Recipe: Yabba Dabba Do Cookies!

I followed the advice of one of my readers, Kristi, and made the crispy treats using Fruity Pebbles

(I’ve also made them with the cocoa pebbles and both are awesome!).

Before making these I called Post to double-check that these two cereals were in fact gluten-free and was assured that they were gluten-free.

Try them today. You’ll love them!

Gluten Free Shortbread Cookies 

These light (and no, not in the fat content sense), buttery, sweet little wafers will melt in your mouth.

Plus, shortbread is perfect for making gluten free because it’s supposed to be a little crumbly.

I don’t even bother making wheat shortbread cookies anymore because everyone likes these just as much, if not more.

In the mood for something different?

Corn-syrup and Cane-sugar-Free Caramel Popcorn Recipe

gluten free sugar free corn syrup free caramel corn

What’s the problem with how traditional caramel corn is made? The primary ingredients are usually corn syrup and refined white sugar (not at all beneficial to our health or mood).  Also, you often have to fight to keep the caramel corn on the baking sheets as you stir it during baking.  All these problems have been solved with this new recipe.  Natural sweeteners replace the corn syrup and white sugar and the mixture is baked in a casserole dish.  Easy and yummy! I’m also always amazed by how large a batch is made with such a small amount of ingredients.

Pop ½ cup of popcorn (produces 2-3 quarts of popcorn)

3 Tbsp. coconut oil/butter
1/3 cup honey and/or maple syrup Read More »

Orange Raspberry Blueberry Muffins Recipe

I once was in a shopping mall in California (Sears, I believe), and read a screen t-shirt that was soooo hilarious to me that I took a picture of it. It said (and I quote), “Muffins are just ugly cupcakes”. It had a picture of this beautifully conceited cupcake staring down its low-esteemed muffin companion.

I know – pretty mean – but I had to laugh!

Now of course, I view it as “Cupcakes are just pretty muffins with hats on”, but that is neither here nor there.DSC_0239-1

Gluten-Free Mini Corn Dogs Recipe

Bryan loves corn dogs and for many years I would even take a bite of one of them.  It was a texture thing to me…I always thought that the corn bread batter would be soggy and mushy and I wanted nothing to do with them.  When Bryan came to visit me in California we picked up a box for him (they weren’t gluten-free), but when he left I still had half a box…they ended up in the trash. I told him at some point I will give them a try.

A few months ago I as fortunate enough to sample some of the Applegate Farms new corn dogs – they were delicious!! To my surprise the coating was crunch and not soggy at all. Ever since Bryan has been asking for me to make some…he would really love them to be full of gluten but he’s a good sport and eats what I make.  Maybe I’ll surprise him and make some regular ones for him anyway.

Yesterday I decided to make some mini corn dogs just to see how they would Read More »

Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Egg-free Vegan Pancake Recipe

Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Egg-free Vegan Pancakes

Yes, I hit the trifecta on this recipe. I was able to successfully make a pancake without gluten, dairy (in essence, casein) and eggs! It is a vegan, gluten-free pancake.

I have been cooking gluten-free for 5 years. That I have figured out. I like to use my own blend (see the recipe for the link) in place of flour. I have found, through trial and error, that the pancake is better with some xanthan gum. It holds together better.

Substituting the milk is easy. There are many milk substitutes like soy, rice, coconut, hemp, and almond. If you use something sweetened, cut back on the sugar in the recipe. Instead of butter, you can use Read More »
