Soft, moist and delicious…the pudding and cookie lovers in your life will love these gluten-free cookies!
1 cup brown rice flour
1 cup white rice flour
1 cup tapioca flour or arrowroot starch
1/3 cup sorghum flour
1 1/2 teaspoons xanthan or guar gum
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 cups coconut oil
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 6-serving package instant pudding (1/2 cup dry)
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups Enjoy Life chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups nuts (optional)
Mix flours, xanthan gum and baking soda in a medium bowl and set aside. In a large bowl, combine coconut oil, sugars, dry pudding mix and vanilla. Beat until smooth and creamy. Beat in eggs. Gradually add flour mixture, then stir in chocolate chips and nuts (if desired). Batter will be stiff. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto cookie sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake for 9 minutes at 375 degrees, cool, enjoy and share! Makes 5-6 dozen cookies.
Special notes: 3 1/3 cups flour are needed for this recipe. You may experiment with various amounts of gluten-free flours you have on hand. The flours above are the ones that worked well for me. Double check your pudding box to make sure it is instant and gluten-free. My box had modified food starch, but it was listed as corn starch which is gluten-free.
Keep up the good work of reading labels and practicing with new flours; it is worth the effort for your gluten-free diet!
Praise the Lord! Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!
