Gluten-Be-Gone Homestyle Chocolate Chip Cookies from Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan! Pre-gluten free, I made the homestyle chocolate chip cookies from Vive Le Vegan on an embarrassingly regular basis. I still have the recipe memorized! (admittedly, it’s super simple)….
I’m not sure why it took me so long to get around to making Dreena’s gluten free version, because they are gooooood. And by that, I mean that they’re crunchy. To my mind, crunchy trumps chewy – sorry, chewy cookie folks. These are the first GF cookies I’ve made that have been even remotely crunchy, so I was very pleased. I bet if you baked them for less time, they’d turn out perfectly chewy, too. 🙂
