chocolate chip pumpkin cookies {gluten free}

Gluten free baking mixes are underrated. It is great to find your own combinations that work for you, but when you find one that creates delicious anything, you need to keep it handy. These gluten free Chocolate Chip Pumpkin cookies were made using Pamela’s Baking Mix. I use this mix a lot for my kids… pancakes, waffles, cookies and dinner rolls to name a few. The outcome is always fantastic and most people can’t even tell it’s gluten free.

They are such a great treat but by no means a health food.

To make things less complicated, you can buy all of the ingredients and recreate these frozen beauties in minutes. If you can wait for them to freeze, I know the flavors will make your tastebuds happy.

I took my most favorite banana muffin recipe and readjusted a few ingredients to make it Paleo compliant. I'm am a little afraid to say it's better but I think I hit it out of the park on this one. As a gluten free baker, once you figure out how to use the endless choice of flours and how to combine them, you hit this beautiful sweet spot where recipes come together and just satisfy.
