    I have used a very similar recipe in the past, and it's always a huge hit. No one knows or cares that it's gluten-free - except for those of us who can enjoy only gluten- free cookies! Pumpkin is so healthful - I often use more of it than the recipe suggests.

    I saw this recipe and had a few questions about the ingredients. Is the 'gluten free vanilla' the powdered white vanilla? Aren't chocolate chips, in general, already gluten free? and Is there another form of 'gluten free baking goods, but on these items I want to make sure they are the correct product. Thanks for all your information. It is so helpful and I look forward to getting it all of the time.

    We loved these! I have a picky 8 year old who gobbled them up... I was out of brown sugar, so I used a quarter cup of honey in it's place. It made these a soft, cake like cookie, & they were all gone in just a couple of days... plus, anyway I can sneak in extra nutrition in veggies I love! Thanks

    These were awesome. I added some oats at the end since for some reason it didn't seem thick enough before putting them on the baking sheet and I'm really glad I did. They are more bread-like (maybe because of the baking soda?) but really tasty. I have only three left and just made them a couple hours ago. I would probably agree with a previous posting that more pumpkin would be a good addition - they didn't taste too pumpkin-y.

    Awesome cookies, I just added a little more cinnamon and added some cinnamon chips along with the chocolate chips. Great consistency as well, my kids (ages 2 & 4) love these.

    Great base recipe! This is the closest I've been able to come to a nice, soft cookie! I did adjust to fit our dietary restrictions (Earth Balance shortening instead of butter, removed nutmeg and added more cinnamon in its place, some flour subs - I used 3/4 C white rice flour, 1/2 C corn flour, & 1/4 C garfava flour, and enjoy life choc chips).

     

    They turned out deliciously soft and almost cake like. The tops weren't the usual hardened shells normally found in gluten free baked goods.

     

    I was surprised that they didn't spread like a lot of gluten-free baked items do. Maybe the amount of baking powder?

     

    I will definitely use this recipe again!

    LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe! My son (4 years old) has a sensory condition meaning he struggles with textures and he devoured these! I had to change the flour mix and he could't have the ones mentioned.

    I used 1 cup brown rice flour, 3/4 cup potato starch and 1/2 cup almond meal. I also used dairy-free margarine and no egg powder.

  • About Me

    In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease. In 1998 I founded The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.

    I revised my special cookie recipe that I use to make when I was in forestry, My friends cant even tell they are gluten-free cookies. Make extra because they go fast!

    Scott Adams
    ½ cup salted butter, softened
    3/8 cup brown sugar, packed
    3/8 cup granulated white sugar
    1 large egg
    ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 cup instant masa de maiz (The masa flour is finely ground hominy normally used for making tamales or corn tortillas, and is available wherever Mexican staple ingredients are sold)
    ½ teaspoon baking soda
    1 pinch salt (optional)
    ½ cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
    1 cup (6 ounces by weight) chocolate chips
    Beat butter, sugars, egg, and vanilla until fluffy. Add masa, soda, and salt; mix well. Stir in the nuts and chips. Roll the batter into balls about one inch in diameter or slightly larger. Bake on un-greased cookie sheets at 375 degree for about 10 minutes. Allow to cool on cookie sheet for several minutes before you transfer them to a rack to finish cooling. They will fall apart if you try to transfer them too hot, and they will stick if you let them cool completely on the cookie sheet.

    Scott Adams
    ½ cup butter or margarine
    ¾ cup peanut butter
    1 cup white rice flour
    ¼ cup tapioca flour
    ½ cup sugar
    ½ cup packed brown sugar
    1 egg
    ½ teaspoon baking soda
    ½ teaspoon baking powder
    1 bag milk chocolate chips
    In a bowl beat margarine and peanut butter with an electric mixer until well blended. Add flours, sugars, egg, baking soda and powder. Beat until thoroughly combined. Add in chocolate chips and mix with a fork. Shape into 1 inch balls, and flatten by crisscrossing with a fork. Bake at 375 for 6-8 minutes or until lightly browned.

    Celiac.com 06/23/2018 - If you’re looking for a great gluten-free Mexican-style favorite that is sure to be a big hit at dinner or at your next potluck, try these green chili enchiladas with roasted cauliflower. The recipe calls for chicken, but they are just as delicious when made vegetarian using just the roasted cauliflower. Either way, these enchiladas will disappear fast. Roasted cauliflower gives these green chili chicken enchiladas a deep, smokey flavor that diners are sure to love.
    Ingredients:
    2 cans gluten-free green chili enchilada sauce (I use Hatch brand) 1 small head cauliflower, roasted and chopped 6 ounces chicken meat, browned ½ cup cotija cheese, crumbled ½ cup queso fresco, diced 1 medium onion, diced ⅓ cup green onions, minced ¼ cup radishes, sliced 1 tablespoon cooking oil 1 cup chopped cabbage, for serving ½ cup sliced cherry or grape tomatoes, for serving ¼ cup cilantro, chopped 1 dozen fresh corn tortillas  ⅔ cup oil, for softening tortillas 1 large avocado, cut into small chunks Note: For a tasty vegetarian version, just omit the chicken, double the roasted cauliflower, and prepare according to directions.
    Directions:
    Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a cast iron or ovenproof pan until hot.
    Add chicken and brown lightly on both sides. 
    Remove chicken to paper towels to cool.
     
    Cut cauliflower into small pieces and place in the oiled pan.
    Roast in oven at 350F until browned on both sides.
    Remove from the oven when tender. 
    Allow roasted cauliflower to cool.
    Chop cauliflower, or break into small pieces and set aside.
    Chop cooled chicken and set aside.
    Heat 1 inch of cooking oil in a small frying pan.
    When oil is hot, use a spatula to submerge a tortilla in the oil and leave only long enough to soften, about 10 seconds or so. 
    Remove soft tortilla to a paper towel and repeat with remaining tortillas.
    Pour enough enchilada sauce to coat the bottom of a large casserole pan.
    Dunk a tortilla into the sauce and cover both sides. Add more sauce as needed.
    Fill each tortilla with bits of chicken, cauliflower, onion, and queso fresco, and roll into shape.
    When pan is full of rolled enchiladas, top with remaining sauce.
    Cook at 350F until sauce bubbles.
    Remove and top with fresh cotija cheese and scallions.
    Serve with rice, beans, and cabbage, and garnish with avocado, cilantro, and sliced grape tomatoes.

    Celiac.com 06/22/2018 - The rise of food allergies means that many people are avoiding gluten in recent times. In fact, the number of Americans who have stopped eating gluten has tripled in eight years between 2009 and 2017.
    Whatever your rationale for avoiding gluten, whether its celiac disease, a sensitivity to the protein, or any other reason, it can be really hard to find suitable places to eat out. When you’re on holiday in a new and unknown environment, this can be near impossible. As awareness of celiac disease grows around the world, however, more and more cities are opening their doors to gluten-free lifestyles, none more so than the 10 locations on the list below.
    Perhaps unsurprisingly, the U.S is a hotbed of gluten-free options, with four cities making the top 10, as well as the Hawaiian island of Maui. Chicago, in particular, is a real haven of gluten-free fare, with 240 coeliac-safe eateries throughout this huge city. The super hip city of Portland also ranks highly on this list, with the capital of counterculture rich in gluten-free cuisine, with San Francisco and Denver also included. Outside of the states, several prominent European capitals also rank very highly on the list, including Prague, the picturesque and historic capital of the Czech Republic, which boasts the best-reviewed restaurants on this list.
    The Irish capital of Dublin, meanwhile, has the most gluten-free establishments, with a huge 330 to choose from, while Amsterdam and Barcelona also feature prominently thanks to their variety of top-notch gluten-free fodder.
    Finally, a special mention must go to Auckland, the sole representative of Australasia in this list, with the largest city in New Zealand rounding out the top 10 thanks to its 180 coeliacsafe eateries.
    The full top ten gluten-free cities are shown in the graphic below:

    Celiac.com 06/21/2018 - Would you buy a house advertised as ‘gluten-free’? Yes, there really is such a house for sale. 
    It seems a Phoenix realtor Mike D’Elena is hoping that his trendy claim will catch the eye of a buyer hungry to avoid gluten, or, at least one with a sense of humor. D’Elena said he crafted the ads as a way to “be funny and to draw attention.” The idea, D’Elena said, is to “make it memorable.” 
    Though D’Elena’s marketing seeks to capitalizes on the gluten-free trend, he knows Celiac disease is a serious health issue for some people. “[W]e’re not here to offend anybody….this is just something we're just trying to do to draw attention and do what's best for our clients," he said. 
    Still, the signs seem to be working. D'elena had fielded six offers within a few days of listing the west Phoenix home.
    "Buying can sometimes be the most stressful thing you do in your entire life so why not have some fun with it," he said. 
    What do you think? Clever? Funny?

    Celiac.com 06/20/2018 - Currently, the only way to manage celiac disease is to eliminate gluten from the diet. That could be set to change as clinical trials begin in Australia for a new vaccine that aims to switch off the immune response to gluten. 
    The trials are set to begin at Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre. The vaccine is designed to allow people with celiac disease to consume gluten with no adverse effects. A successful vaccine could be the beginning of the end for the gluten-free diet as the only currently viable treatment for celiac disease. That could be a massive breakthrough for people with celiac disease.
    USC’s Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka said trial participants would receive an injection of the vaccine twice a week for seven weeks. The trials will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr. James Daveson, who called the vaccine “a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.”
    Dr. Daveson said the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance to people with celiac disease.The trial is open to adults between the ages of 18 and 70 who have clinically diagnosed celiac disease, and have followed a strict gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. Anyone interested in participating can go to www.joinourtrials.com.
