In the past, it was difficult to know which gluten free blend of flours would work in a standard recipe. We all have our favorites, but these days I love using gfJules gluten free All Purpose Flour. It's NON-GMO and it works great. Click the link above to check out her products and specials!

Note: If you don't need gluten-free you can still make healthier cookies! Just use regular flour and my changes.
Note: Made these again but I was running low on gluten-free all purpose flour so I used 1/2 all purpose and 1/2 Sweet Rice and they turned out awesome! Even chewier! Enjoy
Makes 3 dozen cookies
- 1/2 cup organic unsalted butter, softened
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, softened
- 1/2 cup organic cane sugar
- 1/4 cup local honey
- 2 eggs
- 2 1/3 cups gluten free all purpose flour, I use gfJules and love it.
- 1/3 cup organic coconut or almonds, ground to meal (not flour) in a coffee mill, measure after grinding
- 1 1/2 teaspoons gluten free cream of tartar
- 1 teaspoon soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- For rolling- mix in a small wide bottomed bowl
- 1/4 cup cane sugar
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon, or more to taste
Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease or line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, beat the butter, coconut oil, sugar, honey for a minute with a hand mixer. Add the eggs and beat for a minute.
- Add the flour, coconut meal, cream of tartar, soda, salt and beat for a minute more or until blended.
- Dough should be very soft and sticky but not runny. Add a tablespoon more flour at a time if too thin. Not too much though, if it's too firm it will bake up dry.
- Mix the rolling sugar in a bowl with a wide bottom. Using a teaspoon, drop a ball of dough into rolling sugar and toss with the spoon to coat well. Or wet your hands, roll the ball and drop into cinnamon sugar. Set coated ball on prepared baking sheet and gently pat down.
- Bake for 5-8 minutes or until set and bottom starts to brown. Don't overbake.
- Remove from baking sheet and cool on rack.
