GLUTEN FREE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES – SOFT COOKIE EDITION {gluten, nut & soy free}

These gluten free chocolate chip cookies are deliciously soft, buttery and sweet, with bursts of chocolate in every mouthful. The recipe is simple and easy to follow, with guaranteed mouthwatering results.

Bird's-eye view of gluten free chocolate chip cookies arranged in a pretty heap on a light bluish grey background, with squares of parchment paper underneath the bottom cookies. Decorative cookie tongs hold the top-most cookie. The cookies are still warm, so the chocolate chips are slightly melted, with a pretty shine on them.

Sometimes things go wrong. And wrong. And wrong. And wrong.

And it honestly doesn’t matter if you’re ridiculously invested, super hard-working and if you’ve done your very best. Things still go wrong. That’s life, I guess.

But even when nothing works and you’re fed up with just about everything… we still have leaves changing colour and falling down and making that crunch swoosh crunch swish sound when you wade through piles of them. We still have words that sound nice and… are nice. And when all else fails, we still have chocolate chip cookies.
