gluten-free vegan chocolate chip cookies

In almost every situations, I’ve encountered someone with Celiac disease or a gluten allergy. People with Celiac disease can’t eat gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye and barley, because it causes an immune response that can damage their small intestine. With them in mind, I like to make something that they can enjoy along with others at events. Gluten-free baking is no easy task to get the texture right, especially with cookies, but I experimented and found a way that works great by subbing wheat flour for gluten-free flour from my chocolate chip cookies recipe. They are also free of other major allergens like dairy, egg and nuts so people with those allergies can join in on the eats too.

These gluten-free vegan chocolate chip cookies are soft, chewy and moist and quite simple to prep. They get positive feedback and have been a favorite at potlucks, which is great news for me, because it takes them off my hands from having to eat them all (not that I’d complain if I had to).
