Practically sugar free, definitely gluten free, chocolate chip cookie

I have tried many MANY gluten free, sugar free cookies where all the comments say it's amazing, better than normal cookies. I try them, and they taste like CRAPOLA! Well, I finally tried and tweeked a recipe I found and came up with this! It is VERY tasty! Now I must leave a disclaimer- I probably still wouldn't make these for guests who have normal cookies all the time. But for a person with a gluten-free, sugar-free diet, these are just scrumptious!

The only sugar in this recipe is from the chocolate chips- the rest is completely sugar-free and gluten-free!


1 and 1/2 Cups Agave Nectar
3 Cups my preferred gluten-free blend
1 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
1/2 Cup Butter (1 stick)
2 Eggs
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1/4 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1 pkg. Chocolate Chips


Preheat the oven to 375. In a large mixing bowl, combine butter with Agave and mix well with a hand mixer. When combined, add in the eggs, one at a time. Add in the vanilla and mix well.

In separate bowl, mix in the baking soda, flour, and salt. Add the flour mixture to the liquid mixture, one cup at a time, and mix well. Stir in the chocolate chips until combined.

With a cookie scoop or a tablespoon, scoop out the cookies onto a cookie sheet, leaving them about 2 inches apart in all directions. Bake until golden, about 10-12 minutes.
