Gluten-Free Triple Chocolate Ginger Cookies are non-dairy cookies everyone will flip their lids for. The cookies are so fudgy and delicious, your family and friends won’t believe they are non-dairy and gluten-free! They are the perfect cookie to bake this holiday season for the gluten-free chocoholics in your life!
Hey everybody! How’s December treating you? If you are anything like half the country, you’re in the kitchen baking up a storm, prepping for holiday get-togethers with friends and family. I have a buddy in town with a gluten allergy, so I made sure to whip him up some gluten-free tasty treats! Introducing Gluten-Free Triple Chocolate Ginger Cookies!
True confession time – I’m not much of a baker. I’m not very confident in my baking abilities. However, I’m getting rather decent at making cookies, especially if they are loaded with chocolate. I mean, chocolate is one of my favorite food groups so if I’m going to the trouble of making cookies, you better be damn well sure I’m putting chocolate in them! #prioritiespeople
I love Gluten-Free Triple Chocolate Ginger Cookies because they feature my second favorite ingredient of all-time, ginger. Chocolate and ginger pair remarkably well together, so #tistheseason to eat them together on a regular basis. Remember my Chewy Chocolate Gingersnap Cookies? OMG, they are to die for too!
You may recall our friends Phoebe and Eric are in town with their adorable 11-month-old baby, Seren. Phoebe and Eric use to live in Portland but moved to Wisconsin almost a year ago to pursue their dream jobs as camp directors. Every time I watch Wet Hot American Summer I can’t help but think of Phoebe and Eric. I can only imagine the type of shenanigans they get involved in because they are hilarious people.
Eric has a gluten allergy so I prepare gluten-free meals and snacks anytime we have him and Phoebe over to our house. During their visit, Kieran and I hosted a potluck at our house so they could see as many of their friends as possible. I immediately started brainstorming recipe ideas that Eric and the rest of the guests could all enjoy. One of those recipes had to be a holiday cookie. I busied myself in the kitchen baking 3 batches of Gluten-Free Triple Chocolate Ginger Cookies, hoping they would be a success.
Calling the cookies a success was an understatement! I overhead guests telling each other they had to try the cookies.
One guest would say to another, OMG, have you tried the cookies:? You have to try the cookies!
The other guest would take a bite, Holy shit, these cookies are really good, what’s in them?
RIGHT?? Christina said they are dairy and gluten-free!!!
Shut the hell up, no way!
Needless to say, all the compliments on the cookies made my day. The cookies were devoured in a nanosecond. It’s a good thing I hid an extra batch of cookies in my office, otherwise, I wouldn’t have had anything to photograph and share with you today!
Seriously though, these Gluten-Free Triple Chocolate Ginger Cookies are insanely delicious. They are soft on the inside and a little crispy around the edges. They are unbelievably fudgy for a cookie made without butter and egg yolks. And for a cookie made without flour, these babies are remarkably chewy.
These cookies are very rich, but the addition of fresh ginger gives them a much-needed hint of spice. Wanna know what’s weird though? I felt the cookies tasted way better than the cookie dough. If you frequent my blog you know cookie dough is my kryptonite. Most cookie recipes I attempt only yield two cookies because the rest of the dough winds up in my gut. This cookie dough is intensely sweet but the flavors mellow out once cooked, into gluten-free cookie perfection.
Do me a favor and don’t forget about the dairy and gluten-free family and friends this year! They will be thrilled if you think about them and bake up some Gluten-Free Triple Chocolate Ginger Cookies! Just be sure to make more than one batch, they will be gone in no time 🙂
