The only thing better than a regular chocolate chip cookie is one that has double the amount of chocolate! These incredibly chewy, yet crisp, cookies are indulgent and, here's the kicker, completely gluten-free! Made with a mix of potato starch, rice flour, tapioca flour and gluten-free vanilla, these are perfect for anyone in your family suffering from Celiac disease or a gluten intolerance. Plus, those who aren't gluten intolerant will also gobble these up because they taste just like regular chocolate chip cookies. A win win for every one!
