Best Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

I've been playing around with cookie recipes as of late and this one is my all time favorite. I hope you enjoy them!


1/2 cup butter softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups gluten free mix (1 & 1/4 cups rice flour, 1/2 cup potato starch, 1/4 cup tapioca starch)
2/3 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp xanthan gum
1 and 1/2 cup chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Beat butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla.

Combine gluten free mix, xanthan gum, cocoa, baking soda and salt in separate bowl.

Add dry ingredients to butter sugar mixture and blend well. Add chocolate chips.

Bake cookies on sheet for 10 minutes.

Dinner Idea: White Sauce with Rice and Chicken

Coming up with new gluten free meal ideas is difficult for me so I thought I'd post a few ideas we've come up with. Lately we've really enjoyed white sauce mixed with rice and chicken. It is very quick and easy, which is nice and it tastes pretty good as well.

White Sauce:

2 Tablespoons butter
2 Tablespoons corn starch or rice flour
1 Cup milk

In a small sauce pan over medium heat melt butter.
Add flour and stir until well combined.
Pour in milk and stir as mixture thickens. Add more milk if needed to create desired consistency.
Flavor to taste with Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper.

Pour white sauce over rice and serve with chicken.
