Gluten Free + Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies that actually taste like real cookies! You know what I mean? This recipe is SO versatile, with substitution options based on what you are looking for.
I actually don’t have any food intolerances at the moment. For some reason once I got pregnant I’ve been able to digest gluten without getting super bloated, and I’ve also always been ok with dairy. But being gluten free-ish for so many years, and just knowing that in general gluten is hard for anyone to digest, I still make the substitutions when I can for the sake of keeping my gut healthy. Same kind of thing with dairy. I eat it, but not all the time as I do find my digestion and skin is better when I don’t have it in excess.
So these cookies are for anyone! With or without food intolerances, you can customize them based on your needs. 🙂
