Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Wouldn’t you just love a gluten-free chocolate chip cookie, right now? What if I told you it was also dairy-free? What if I told you it was actually pretty healthy for you?

Oops! Did I lose you?

Well, what if I told you it tasted amazing? Not kidding. AMAZING!

What if I told you that you could also have a gluten-free, dairy-free, pretty healthy coffee cake? And it also tastes great?

Do you think I’m full of… it?

Well, let me tell you buddy, I am not. OK, sometimes I am but not when it comes to the amazing recipes created by my friend Elana from Elana’s Pantry.

I got to know Elana on twitter.

I think.

It was a while ago.

When Elana really stuck in my head was when I made the Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies. She has two versions on her site. I tried the ones with butter first, and I really like them. But, then I decided to try the dairy-free ones.

I am so glad I did. I like the dairy-free version even better. (Which is good since we are going to go dairy-free in our household. Not feeling so great with the dairy.)

I was a raving lunatic about these cookies. I mean I was raving all of the time, and I was kind of a lunatic about it. I still am. I have the recipe memorized. I have made them so many times, and it is super easy.

So, when I got to meet Elana at BlogHer Food last year, I was star-struck. I lived in Los Angeles for a decade with celebrities all around, and I am star-struck by gluten-free bloggers. Especially ones who write amazing cookbooks. And, now I get to call her friend.

The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook

That’s right, people. I am name-dropping! Elana is my friend. And since she is my friend, she gave me a copy of her cookbook to try out and see what I think of her recipes. (I think you are getting the gist that I like them.)

Oh, and she signed it. Yep! She signed it.

And, she gave me another copy to give to one of you beautiful people. And, it is also signed. That’s right! She signed the giveaway copy, too. Because she’s cool like that.

(Disclaimer: Elana gave both copies to me. I did not pay for them. The opinions in this review are my own, as they always are.)

A few days ago, I told my facebook readers that I was writing a new article about the creator of a fabulous Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookie. (I posted a picture of said fabulous chocolate chip cookie.) Well, since I feel it is not ethical to just give you a recipe from the cookbook without Elana’s permission I can’t write the recipe out here.

BUT…

Elana has the recipe posted on her site, so you can just hop on over and get it yourself. I purposely chose that cookie photo to show so I could at least give you the recipe that way.

Yeah. I’m cool like that.

(And, if you hadn’t caught on yet that I have been linking to it all over the place, here it is: Elana’s Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe.)

So, about this cookbook. While you can get some great recipes on Elana’s site, including the Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Chocolate Chip Cookie from Heaven, there are many, many more great almond flour recipes in the cookbook. It is filled with recipe for breakfasts, entrees, breads, crackers, cakes, etc.

Gluten-Free Almond Flour Herb Crackers | glugleglutenfree.com
Gluten-Free Almond Flour Herb Crackers

Personally, I loved the crackers and the coffee cake. And the Scones, but we scarfed those up before I even thought of bringing out the camera. Oops!

So, here’s the deal. It’s easy. I am giving away a copy of this fantastic book to one you beautiful readers. Just leave a comment below telling me which one of Elana’s recipes on her site, Elana’s Pantry, that you would like to try for yourself.

Of course, there are the usual ways to get extra entries.

  1. Love your blog and seeing you on Facebook!
    Would love to have a cookbook and try the almond flour too.!
    Keep up the great work!

    • Valerie Kiesel

      The cinnamon pecan brittle sounds wonderful. Elana is so inspiring & I’d love a chance to win her cookbook & the almond flour! Thanks…

  2. Jeri Bookout

    I love this blog, I’ve been on your facebook page for quite awhile and I check it everyday. Right now I have numerous recipes bookmarked, and I’ve started a folder in my Word program for the recipes that I can’t bookmark. My job has me working 12-16 hour days, 6 days/week right now, so I haven’t had much time in the kitchen. But on my 1 day off, I do bake something different and then take it to work and share. All my coworkers know that I have Celiac Disease, but most of the time they think that what I baked is what they call “real” LOL.

  3. Jeri Bookout

    Tia, I just sent you a friend request. I would seriously love to win Elana’s Gluten-Free Almond Cookbook. Some of the recipes I’ve been making for my friends, I’ve been substitution Almond Milk whenever it calls for regular milk. Amazing difference.

  4. Jeri Bookout

    Tia, I just “liked” Elana’s Pantry on facebook. I can’t wait for my next day off to make her Chocolate Chip Cookies. I am going to try both versions and substitute with the Almond Milk, I love the additional flavor that this gives in my recipes.

  5. Jeri Bookout

    I have been experimenting with pancakes, was just looking at one of Elana’s recipes on her site. The recipe is similar to one I’ve been trying with a few variations. I really like that she posted additional comments about the best way to cook the pancakes..those will be helpful to me. I coat my pan with Coconut Oil, I love the additional flavor it adds to the pancakes.

  6. Jeri Bookout

    I have several friends on my facebook page who are also gluten free. I shared your posting about the give-a-way for Elana’s Gluten Free Almond Flour Cookbook, they are going to love your site and Elana’s website. Tia, you are amazing for giving away a copy of her cookbook…but even more amazing for giving away the Almond Flour on top of that. I recently left my husband of 23 years…one of the many reasons I left was because he has never supported my need to be Gluten Free. Since I left, and have gone 100% Gluten/Soy free, my health has improved drastically..and it has only been 3 months. What kills me though, is how expensive this stuff is. My grocery bill is more now than it was living with him. :(

    • Glugle Gluten-Free

      Hi Jeri,

      Welcome! Goodness, I guess you are really interested in Elana’s cookbook. ;) I am so sorry about your marriage, but I guess it is now time to concentrate on your health, which it sounds like you are doing. I, too, was shocked at how much better I felt when I stopped eating gluten. Didn’t realize how it affecting me.

      I know it can be expensive, but I highly recommend getting to know sites/people who really espouse naturally gluten free foods/cooking. It is more economical and thay have some fabulous recipes. Some of my favorites are Shirley from glutenfreeeasily.com , Kim from cookitallergyfree.com/blog , Heidi from adventuresofaglutenfreemom.com , and Diane from thewholegang.com . They are also wonderful people who really like to communicate with their readers. That’s how I became friends with them. And, it is wonderful to have their support. The more support you can get, the better.

      xoxo,
      Tia

    • Tia,

      If you don’t worry about buying processed foods, it isn’t nearly as expensive. We eat lots of easy to find Whole foods.

      Good luck!

  7. I just started with the gluten free/dairy free lifestyle and am learning so much from all of you. I just started following both you and Elana. I would love this cookbook as I know it would help my family so much! Thank you for sharing!

  8. I’d most like to try her breads, especially the Gluten-Free Bread 2.0. I’ve only used almond flour a couple of times so would like to try these recipes. Those herb crackers look wonderful.

  9. I read Elana’s blog all the time and I am waiting to try her cake pops! My friend makes them for her non-profit and I’m going to love adding a GF option to her fundraisers!

  10. Moreen Gover

  13. JessicaG

    I liked Elana’s FB page, subscribed to your blog, and liked Glugle on FB, and shared you on my FB page. Can you tell I really want this book? We just found out my son needs to be GF and so we are jumping in head first to try to help him as best we can.

    • Glugle Gluten-Free

      Hi JessicaG,

      Thanks! Don’t forget to leave separate comments for more chances to win.

      That is so wonderful that you are just going in head first to help your son. It’s a hard/crazy transition, but it is so worth it for your son’s health. Plus, after you get going, it gets easier. As I have told a Jeri and Amanda, there are a few other sites that are really helpful with recipes and support. glutenfreeeasily.com , cookitallergyfree.com/blog , adventuresofaglutenfreemom.com and thewholegang.com . Give them a try.

    Thanks so much for all of….this! I greatly appreciate you and your friendship :-)

    xo Elana

  15. I “like” Elana on Facebook! Can’t wait to try the chocolate chip cookies!

  16. I just love the recipes on Elana’s Pantry! She offers great alternatives to rice based flours and amazing options from soup to nuts!

  17. Elizabeth

    Those crackers look so yummy! I typically make my own b/c it is difficult to find gluten, corn, soy free crackers.

  18. I have been wanting to try Elana’s Dark Rye Bread. Rye is my husband’s favorite and I have yet to find a good gluten-free recipe. Thanks for the chance to win!

  19. I now subscribe to Glugle Gluten-Free using Google Reader!

  20. I LOVE this book, I borrowed it from a friend for a bit and made a few things… something I’d want to try from her blog? the orange cake sounds wonderful!

  21. Wow! I love her recipes. I would definitely have to make that coffee cake (along with the peanut butter chocolate chip cupcakes!) Great review!!

  22. I would love a copy of your book. I run a support group that meets monthly. It is nice to introduce new books to our group by “show and tell.” Then we keep them in a library of sorts. That way new people who join can see what is available and what GF folks endorse!

  23. I am so glad to have found your blog. Always ready for gluten-free inspiration. I added you to my reader feed. This is a great giveaway.

  24. Stephanie KL

    I’ve added Glugle Gluten-Free using Google Reader. A dual giveaway — how exciting!!

  25. I make Elana’s chocolate chip scones every week. I am addicted!!

  26. Stephanie KL

    I love almond flour and Elana’s Pumpkin Pie Muffins. Elana’s cookbook was on my Christmas Wish List. It would be so nice to win one — especially a signed copy. Oh, to be so lucky. Thanks for the opportunity to join in.

  27. Love Elana’s recipes, can’t wait to try yours! I’d love to get a signed copy and enjoy the 5 lb. bag of almond flour. Thanks for the opportunity to try!

  28. I love elana’s recipes! I’m looking forward to trying her chocolate walnut torte!

  29. Today, I subscribed to Glugle GlutenFree after ready Elana’s (Pantry) nice comments. I look forward to spending more time on your site. The recipe on Elana’s blog I’d like to make next is the recipes she posted today — Orange Dark Chocolate Chip Scones.

  30. Juliette

    I just admitted I “Like” Elana’s Pantry on Facebook. But reality is, I LOVE it. Especially her regular emails with scrumptious recipes.

  31. i’d like to try her new orange chocolate chip scone recipe!

  32. I’m totally drooling over the orange chocolate chips scones Elena just posted on her site today. My mom made that coffee cake for Christmas and it was amazing! Even gluten-eating members of the family were raving over it!

  33. I’m going to try the roasted broccoli. It sounds like a nice alternative to our normal steaming.

  34. I love Elana’s Pantry! I just barely found her website and have truly enjoyed experimenting with almond flour!
    I like her on Facebook!

  35. Wonderful review of a wonderful cookbook.
    All recipes work great.

  36. Oh boy. I want to make Elana’s Chocolate Cake with Coconut Flour. I started going gf over the winter break and my mom and I got really into baking with almond flour and coconut flour. Oh the goodies she could bake and send me with that book and that flour!

  37. I just signed up for email alerts. I would love to win Elana’s cookbook!

  38. Oh, Elans just posted a recipe for orange and chocolate chip scones on her website. Now I have to try those!

  39. I’d love to try the Double Chocolate Orange Torte…..and cake pops…..and definitely the orange dark choc chip scones…..I could keep going…..can you tell I have a sweet tooth. :)

  40. Can’t wait to try stuff from your website. I love cooking gluten free. It’s a challenge, but oh so rewarding!

  41. Sheila Herb

    Love your blog and signed up for your updates. I would love to win Elena’s cookbook as I am new to gluten free and sure could use some direction!

  42. Sheila Herb

    Love your Glugle Glute Free FB page! I only was able to like the page as there is no love option!

  43. Sheila Herb

    I “friended” you on Facebook! I would love to win Elena’s cookbook.

  44. Those cookies look delicious, I miss coffee cake- haven’t had a GF version yet. My favorite recipe on elana’s pantry blog(so far) is the almond bread. So far the bread has been my favorite since going GF(& caesin free, corn free etc.) It’s even better than the bread machine mixes in my opinion(I have had very bad experiences with making my own except for her almond bread recipe).

  45. Lorraine

    I have made several of Elana’s recipes and enjoy them all. My next recipe to try will be her Gluten Free Orange Chocolate Scones!

  46. I’m glad I found your website. I also luv, luv, luv elana’s chocolate chip cookies!! I would really love to have her cookbook!

  47. I liked your post. :-) I am similarly enamored with many of her recipes. Esp the chocolate chip scones. YUM!

  48. I follow Elana on my RSS feed and email because I don’t own a bird and so can’t tweet.
    I’m going to try the new scone recipe on her page with an egg replacer, those Orange Chocolate Scones look fascinating if only because they don’t use butter or cream. I don’t believe I’ve ever seen a recipe like that before. Besides who are we kidding, orange and chocolate are a combo made in heaven.
    Also getting the lucky winner started with some blanched almond flour is a truly magnanimous gesture as I’m not into blanching my almonds before I blitz them to death to achieve what is probably not even a close proximity. I know, we all have our cross to bear (ear to ear grin). Anyway, it’s a wonderful giveaway even if I can only enter once.

  49. The first recipe I tried was the chocolate chip cookies – they were fabulous. I would love to make her cake from her book. I am on the list at the library but I am number 12!

  50. I would love to try out one of her cakes, the german chocolate sounds fantastic (as do her many cupcake recipes) . I’ve tried her fruit crisp recipes (I highly recommend them) using homemade almond meal, but I can’t get the almonds ground finely enough to make a flour for a cake, and I haven’t had the opportunity (or the extra money) to buy almond flour! Thanks for a great giveaway!

  51. Hi Tia,
    I’ve signed up with RSS and glad to have found your blog! I’d love to be enetered in the cookbook giveaway, I’m keen to try the Orange Dark Chocolate Chip Scones.

  52. I love Elena’s blog! You’ve got to try the banana cake next time you have some over-ripe ones begging for a recipe..it’s fantastic…also, her pancake recipes are all great too!!

  53. I followed Elana on Twitter.

    And I will be subscribing to your feed. The almond flour has been a blessing in our house. I don’t like it for everything, but some of the recipes are so good.

  54. I want to try the chocolate orange scones that she has posted right now. I also liked both Elana’s Pantry and your site on FB.

  55. Theresa P.

    Hi Tia, this is the first time that i have been to your site, thanks to Elana.( i will be back many times). I have been a fan of Elana’s for several years now. my family is also hooked on her chocolate chip cookies! that is the only way we make them now! and we have them quite often! I don’t feel guilty when i make them for my family, like i did when I made them the old gluten version . they like Elanas gluten free version much more! YEA! there are so many of Elana’a recipes that i have tried and love. and i plan to try many more! i would like to try this recipe for the Gluten-free Orange Dark Chocolate Scones.Thanks for the giveaway.

  56. Theresa P.

    Hi Tia, i just subscribed to your blog via email. looking forward to them. Thanks and thanks for the giveaway.

  61. I am new to being gluten free, this cookbook would be so helpful! I would like to try the Vegan Herb Crackers from her site sometime!

  62. Rudy Roberts

    I have been using some recipes from Elana’s site and I love them! I have a pre-diabetic husband and daughter, so cutting back on carbs and increasing protein has been a goal now for the last year. Her recipes with almond flour allow me to still fix them “treats” but keep them healthy at the same time.

  63. What a great resource – looking forward to more posts from you! I love love love Elana’s recipes and would be delighted to try her new scone recipe. :) Thank you for the great giveaway!

  64. This is my first visit to your blog — I found you from Elana. I have been following her blog for the past few months. I have tried several of her recipes — but have not tried the chocolate chip cookies yet. I definitely need to make them. Also the scones. Thanks for the giveaway. Would love to have her cookbook and the almond flour!

  65. Excited to find another gluten free blog. I’ll probably try the scones just posted on elena’ssi
    Site-that brought me here.thanks for all the inspiration.
    Mc

  66. Love Elana’s recipes. Her “Nutty Bread” is the best…sliced thin and toasted. Oh man! Love your enthusiasm. Keep up the good work. Great blog here!

  67. Kathy Warren

    I have tried many of Elana’s recipes (isn’t it hard to decide which one to chose first?) My family LOVES the chocolate chip cookies (the one using grapeseed oil). I think the next one I am going to try will be the crackers. I thought something savory would be good! I already follow Elana on Facebook and have now “liked” your site as well. Since this way of eating is new to me, I need all the help I can get!! Thanks for the chance to win the cookbook and the almond flour. Both will be so helpful as I adjust my way of eating.

  68. Just found your website through Elana’s, looks great!! the recipe I would really like to try from Elana’s is the ginger cookies and the New German Chocolate cake. i have recently tried the date and walnut bars, but used pecans as I was out of walnuts.

  69. I’d love to make Elanas cinnamon bun muffins, power bars, and chocolate chip scones. She has so many awesome looking recipes it’s hard to choose! I’d love to win her book and the almond flour so I could get cooking!

  70. I have made a few of her recipes already and have loved them all! My favorite is the pumpkin pie bars. soo soo sooo good! The next one I want to try is some of her crackers.

  71. I just found out about your website from Elana’s Pantry Blog. I love your site as well. I am an Ovarian Cancer survivor and have been exploring new ways to nourish my body during my healing journey. Thank you for this opportunity for a new cookbook. Deborah in Seattle

  72. Ildi Abraham

    Hi there!
    I would love to win a copy of Elana’s fantastic book. I have been following her pantry for a couple of weeks now and I am determined to try (and not just once) her date walnut bars – and many others with sweet flavour :)
    I really like this page as well so I am going to follow this one, too :) Bye

  73. I already made Elana’s date-walnut bars. Very moist and delicious!

  74. Would love that book. I follow you and Elena on twitter, and I just sent you a friend request on FB.

  75. Kimmie Matsunaga

    I WANT TO TRY ELANA’S CHOCOLATE CAKE! I just started eating gluten free this month as an “experiment” and I love it! I feel great, but I crave chocolate. I’d love to try the chocolate cake for my upcoming birthday. I want to feed it to my friends unknowingly and see what they say…

  76. I love Elana’s recipes! Still have lots more to try- like the chocolate chip scones!

  83. Oh my! I have been wanting to get this recipe book for a while! …..sorry, was daydreaming about scones and chocolate chip cookies….We are fairly new to all of this, still trying to figure it all out and have been wondering about the almond flour as we have not tried it yet, it is so darn expensive . It looks like I will have to do this soon!

    Oh by the way…I found you on FB :)

  84. Would have to be the orange dark choc chip scones… I’m sure my little boy would love those. I m still getting to grips with gluten and dairy free, and what is available.

  92. alisa joy

    ironically, the recipe i most want to try from elana’s website is the orange dark chocolate scone recipe. which was in the same posting that mentioned your blog :) while i normally do well without baked goods, i’ve been CRAVING scones like crazy the past few weeks. this might solve my dilemma.

  93. Sarah D.

    Hi there! New to this site (and very excited about it!) because I was referred by Elana’s blog. The recipe of hers I am still dying to try is the vanilla cupcakes with chocolate frosting – hoping to make these for my February birthday.

  104. I’ve been gluten free for almost 2 yrs, and dairy free for 1. I’ve not been eating any starches at all as of late – so something made out of almond flour (which is not a starch) would be great! Thanks so much for the giveway. I’m going to go check out Elana’s site! God bless!

  105. I do indeed “like” both on facebook. I would like to try the chocolate chip cookies.

  106. I already LOVE Elana’s Cinnamon Bun Muffin recipe. I would love to have the cookbook, though! :) Thanks!

  107. I would LOVE to try the chocolate chip cookie recipe! We just found out that our 3 yr old daughter has to go gluten-free and her favorite thing EVER are chocolate chip cookies!

  108. I would love to make crackers for my son. He’s on the CF/GF diet & misses crackers so much.

  109. I love your blog and I also follow on Facebook. I would love to have some chocolate chip cookies!
    My biggest challenge is I have to be dairy free, gluten free and soy free. It is such a hard task.

  110. it is great to see so many people posting on this site ! when my husband was diagnosed 16 years ago, there were no other celiacs in our city his gastro dr got refer us to. we had to hunt all over the internet for info. you have really changed the face of gluten free ! the one recipe that jumped out on elana’s site would be Hamantaschen. it looks heavenly awesome. thanks for all your hard work !

  111. I love looking for new recipe’s that are gluten free. my little sister was diagnosed with celiac about 2 months ago and im trying to find every recipe i can to help her live a gluten free life. I follow everything thats posted by you on facebook and im always looking for ideas to pass along to her. Thank you so much for all the help you have gave me to share with my sister. Even the littlest things posted are a big help.

    I’ve been gluten free just about a month now and discovered about a week ago I need to go casein free as well. I just discovered this website a few nights ago and already have learned some tips. Thank you very much for the great ideas and helpful hints, they are greatly appreciated!

  113. Do I get 2 chances if I shared via fb AND added you as a friend? LOOKS amazing! can’t wait to try out the recipes!!!

      Yes, Ashley. Just be sure to leave a separate comment since that is how I count the entries. ;)

  114. I’ve GOT to try the chocolate chip cookies! I just went gluten free seven months ago, and before that I was a master cookie baker. Now everything GF I bake comes out totally funky. :-( I WILL LEARN TO BAKE AGAIN!

  115. I can’t wait to give these a try. I need to put in an order with Honeyville to get some more hi-maize resistant starch, will have to get some almond flour too!

    I “Liked” you on Facebook… now I’m off to find Elana’s pantry and like that, too!

  116. Kelly Ciara

    I liked Glugle Gluten-Free and Elana’s Gluten-Free on Facebook. It is so great to find more gluten-free options!

  117. I sent you a friend request and correction on my last comment – I “like” Glugle Gluten-Free on FB!

  118. Recipe I want to try – does “all of the above” count? If not, the Nacho Cheese Triangles look delicious!

  119. I want to try Elana’s chocolate chip cookie recipe because I have yet to find a gluten free recipe that actually works for us!

  120. I can’t wait to try her nacho cheese triangles for our next potluck. And I love kale chips but never thought to make them salt n vinegar which sounds delish!

  121. I love all the recipes on Elana’s Pantry! Today I’m going to try the orange chocolate chip scones. :-)

  122. I liked Elana on fB. Don’t know why I didn’t before.

  123. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Elana’s recipes! Just made her chocolate chip cookies for the first time yesterday! They are amazing! And I am really super excited about trying out her new Mexican Hot Chocolate Recipe! Trying it later this week! Can’t wait!

  124. Danielle Santapaola

    I liked you on Facebook! Can’t wait to make the chocolate chip cookies!!

  125. I am drooling over Elana’s blog! I will definitely be making her Cinnamon Pecan Brittle.

    Following Elena on FB! LOVE all the wonderful recipes! My 11 year old son appreciates them, too! Thank you for the opportunity to win!

  127. Linda Sheridan

    Tried the pizza recipe. We are vegan, so substituted applesauce for the egg. It was very tasty, but next time will try egg replacer instead as a binder. It was crumbly. Next up – trying one of the cracker recipes!

  128. I love all of Elana’s recipes, but one of my favorite has to be her orange dark chocolate scones, or maybe her flourless chocolate cupcakes…well, there are many. Anyway, I’m so glad you liked everything in the cookbook – I’ll keep looking for it in my local bookstore!

  129. I’ll be making the gluten free, dairy free chocolate chip cookies as soon as I get my hands on Elena’s cookbook. I’m gonna try substituting butterscotch bits or white chocolate bits for the chocolate chips as I have recently been told I am allergic to chocolate (among many other things). mmmmmm- yummy!
    So happy I found your blog. :)

  130. I would love the try the nacho cheese triangles.
    Also I subscribed to your site by email.

  134. … still recovering from all the scrolling (phew) …

    Just wanted to say how much I admired the chocolate CHUNK in that first pic, is there any cookie at all in that one I mean really, how delicious is that!

  135. I would love to try the gluten free sesame cracker recipe. I will also be letting my friend know on facebook about the giveaway. She recently found out she has celiac disease.

  136. They look totaly decadent! I would love indulge right now!

  137. I would love the German Chocolate cake recipe! My little 4 year old boy has Celiac and he loves chocolate cake. Axtually I’m sure he’d be excited by many of the recipes. Thanks!

    I really want to try the Salt and Vinegar Kale Chips on Elana’s Pantry Blog. They look delicious!

    Thanks so much for the cooking help! Living in rural wyoming and being a student has made creating elaborate gf recipes tricky, so the chocolate chip cookies are heaven-sent.

  144. alisa joy
