Who doesn’t love cookies?! Making sure that no one misses out, here is my recipe for gluten free chocolate chip cookies.

The recipe is wheat free, dairy free and refined sugar free. Being made from cassava flour they are also allergy friendly and nut free.

Sweetened naturally with pure maple syrup or you can use any natural sweetener you like.

These gluten free chocolate chip cookies are the perfect treat. Kids love them too!

What is cassava flour?

Cassava flour is made from the cassava tuber. You might also know it as yuca. It is a sustainable, starchy root vegetable that when made into a flour can take the place of regular wheat flour in most recipes. Cassava does soak up a lot of liquid so its a close 1:1 swap but generally use a touch less than you would regular flour or add extra liquid/ fats. It has a mild flavour and perfect for baking.
