Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites
My cousin is on a gluten diet and I made this recipe. He loves sweets and he loved these cookies. He was thrilled I found a recipe for cookies that he can eat. They are so easy to make.
I am an Activity Director at an Assisted Living Facility for Seniors and I chose this recipe to bake for a cooking activity. The steps are simple and gave my residents opportunities for everyone to help. The wonderful aroma of baking drifted through the facility, the "bite" size allowed us to serve the cookies to other Residents, and a good time was had by all. This "no wheat" recipe can be made with Splenda brown sugar blend, to create a recipe that can be enjoyed by people with various diet restrictions...Thanks Nestles!
I am a 55 year old woman who loves to bake and about 6 mos ago was diagnosed with Celiac disease. Baking has become a challenge for me. I was extremely excited to find this recipe w/o wheat flour or any forbidden grains. I did add 1/2 tsp of xanthum gum and I rolled the dough in granulated sugar and they turned out great; much better than I had hoped. Thank you for this recipe and I hope more are to follow for the every growing celiac community.
CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE BITES--WHEAT FREE
This is the sort of recipe I've been looking for! It's so hard to find things to bake for my son who doesn't eat wheat, but since he also doesn't eat sugar, I had to substitute Splenda and use sugar-free carob chips for the chocolate ones. It's still a good recipe and a special treat for those who can't eat like most people do.
Gluten free Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites
My stepdaughter is on a gluten free diet, and really misses cookies and other baked goodies. She was home from college for the weekend, so we made a batch of these. She really enjoyed them, and took the whole batch back with her.
