What is different about these Gluten-Free Double Chocolate Soft Cookies?

These double chocolate soft cookies are healthier than most. A classic chocolate chip cookie is typically made with butter, refined sugar and flour. In this cookie recipe, there is no added refined sugar. The only sweetener used is healthy honey.

Also, this gluten-free cookie recipe has only half the butter, and to add to the goodness, these double chocolate soft cookies are made with healthy unsweetened cocoa powder. The best part, you can’t tell that these delicious cookies are gluten-free.

Cookies make a great hostess gift!

Bringing a freshly baked gluten-free box of cookies as a hostess gift is always a big hit. You can also add other cookies to the box like the Grain-Free Crescent Cookies and Gluten-Free Thumbprint Cookies, both of these gluten-free cookies are very popular during the holiday season.

I believe you can never have enough delicious, freshly baked cookies at any time of the year. All you need is a festive cookie box to put them in.

When it comes to cookies, no one can resist soft double chocolate cookies. We all have our favourite cookie recipes, but chocolate always prevails, especially with kids and me 🙂 In our home, chocolate chip cookies are especially popular. So I couldn’t just stop at one gluten-free chocolate cookie recipe.

I have created several gluten-free chocolate chip cookies and the One Bowl Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies  and the Grain-Free Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies have been most popular. I have even made Keto Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies which are suitable for those that are following a low carb diet.

Double Chocolate Soft Cookies are amazing when the cookies are still slightly warm and freshly baked because the chocolate is still melting, making these cookies irresistible.

Because I wanted these cookies to look festive, I added sparkle to them. This is optional, and I would not do this for an everyday cookie treat. I rolled them in raw turbinado sugar just before they go in the oven to add the sparkle. You can also roll them in powdered sugar.
