Perfect Grain Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

It’s time for another rendition of Adopt A Gluten-Free Blogger! This month is being hosted by Sunny of And Love It Too – and there’s still time to sign up – deadline is today, July 28th – so if you want to participate, leave Sunny a comment on her sign-up post and you’re in! If you are interested in signing up for August, check out Alta @ Tasty Eats at Home!

This was my very first time in participating in the Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger series.  What a treat!  It was obvious for me to pick someone who cooked without a lot of grains since we are 3 weeks into our Paleo, grain-free trial.  I wanted to eat the culinary creations I whipped up!


I first stumbled upon The Urban Poser when her “No Oatmeal Creme Pie Cookies” caught my eye out in the blogosphere.  Once I landed on Jenni’s site, I was eager to peruse all the amazing eye candy: this is one talented food photographer!  And better yet, here was a blogger that cooked with minimal sweeteners and had a focus on real food: a perfect fit!

Exploring The Urban Poser even more thoroughly was a great pleasure.  With her witty, down-to-earth prose, you feel like you are cooking with a friend!

These cookies are a recent creation by Jenni and are a complete home-run. A home-run when your team is down by 3 and the bases are loaded. Smokin.  I was first drawn to the recipe as it had no eggs and used so little sweetener!  The results were soft, tender, and had a lovely chewy texture.  My husband took one bite and exclaimed, “These are %^#$@ awesome!”  I would have to agree.

So few ingredients, and no eggs to boot, these grain free cookies are a surprise: how can such simple ingredients create such a perfect gluten free cookie?!  I even got away with using  3 tablespoons of honey instead of the 1/4 cup…crazy!

Enjoy people, I know my neighbors, my family, and well….mySELF have really, REALLY enjoyed these cookies, and I would guess you will too!

When her third child was born with severe food allergies, Tessa took to the kitchen to figure out how to feed her family well. Always up for a culinary challenge, their journey has taken many twists and turns! Lots of Paleo, and lots of top 8 free. Good food for families, that's what she's about!

  7. Such a great adoption, Tessa! I drooled over those cookies, too. They remind me of Elana’s vegan chocolate chip cookies some. I agree that Jenni has some terrific recipes. I’d like to try many of them, too. Thanks for sharing her with us, Tessa. :-)

    Would it be possible to use Yacon Syrup in this recipe? :)

  11. Fiona Burns says:

    Thank you so much for this recipe. I have an almond and walnut intolerance. Can you recommend the best substitute for the almond meal? Thank you kindly
