Enjoy a treat that’s a little better for you with these healthy whole grain chocolate chip cookies. Delicious, chocolatey, and gluten free and vegan, too!

There’s just something about a warm chocolate chip cookie, isn’t there?

Whether you grew up eating cookies made from scratch or used a tube of refrigerator dough, there’s nothing quite like sitting down to fresh-baked cookies and a glass of milk.

Now, there’s nothing wrong with making chocolate chip cookies the standard way…white sugar, brown sugar, white flour, butter, etc. That’s fine if you can tolerate those ingredients and it’s a treat.

But, if you’re in a cookie mood, and want to use healthier ingredients, you might want to try these whole grain chocolate chip cookies.

It’s easy to make your own all-purpose gluten free flour mix with this recipe. This recipe uses simple ingredients and doesn’t require any xanthan gum. 

For years I refused to make my own gluten free flour mix.

Number one, there are just a lot of great store bought mixes out there, and it was more convenient to buy and use those in my gluten free baking.

Then there was the whole thing about needing to use a scale to get the measurements exactly right. Using a scale sounded like an extra step that I didn’t want to take. I know, I probably sound super lazy! It wasn’t really laziness though, more like it just made making your own gluten free flour mix sound very scientific and complicated.
