Gluten Free Double Chocolate Cookies

These gluten free cookies have double the chocolate, making them extra delicious.

Just don't forget the salt. Ha. When I made these cookies the first time I was wondering what was missing. Then my sister kindly pointed out that I might have forgotten to put salt in them.  And that is why I shouldn't be baking after spending a full day outdoors with my energetic nieces and nephews.

Oh, well. Lesson learned.

This time I remembered the salt. And they turned out great.

These cookies are filled with a great chocolate flavor, are soft and chewy, and are pretty quick to throw together compared with other chocolate cookies.

  1. Oo! These look delicious!
    It surprises me what a difference salt can make in even a sweet recipe. Too little and it can be really bland, too much and it's so off. I definitely struggle with that balance when I'm baking.

  2. Oh how yummy! My tummy is speaking to me on this one!

  3. Bethany, I'm drooling! These cookies look incredible!

  4. Oh, these look divine! The ultimate chocolate fix for sure. :-)
