Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Pretzel Cookies Recipe


I’m a cookie lover to the extreme. I could possibly live on them, but I’m sure my doctor would have a different opinion on that.

When I went gluten free, I felt like I had lost cookies forever. At that time, although there were a few good gluten free cookie options, for the most part I was limited.

I lived many miles from the health food store that carried them, plus they cost a fortune for just a few cookies! I could never bring myself to spend that much either.

The great thing is, now you can find more options, but also I can easily make them myself since I have learned how to switch out flours and products for gluten-free alternatives.

A few weeks back, I was really craving a cookie that had a little bit of a sweet and salty mix to it. I noticed that I had some extra gluten free pretzels on hand and had the thought of adding those to the chocolate chip cookies.

I love chocolate covered pretzels, so these should have the same taste.

I used my basic gluten free chocolate chip cookie recipe, and then simply adapted it by adding in the pretzels. Now, if you are making this gluten free they will be a little bit more of a chewy crunch to them because the pretzels do have a different texture than gluten-filled pretzels.

That did not bother me though, we ate plenty in just a few days! I even gave a dozen to my sister just to avoid eating them all by myself.

My whole family enjoyed these, even my non-gluten free family members.

I made these at just the right time because my daughter just recently decided that sleeping was no longer necessary and that just means that Mommy needs a cookie… lots of cookies!

Ready for a treat today? It’s time to bake!
