I’ve had four snow days in the past two weeks. Luckily, I’ve spent my extra time off pursuing an admirable goal: baking the ultimate grain-free chocolate chip cookie.
My quest began when I saw these soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies on Alexandra’s Kitchen. Alexandra’s blog is one of my favorites. Everything she makes is mouthwatering, and I love her detailed tips and stunning, perfectly lit photographs. Basically, I’m a huge fan.
I had to have those cookies.
With a caveat, of course: I wanted them to be paleo-friendly and grain-free.
I’ve made paleo cookies before and thoroughly enjoyed them, but they weren’t the kind of cookies that could blow regular, gluten-containing cookies out of the water. They didn’t have the holy grail: the perfect combination of crunch and chewiness.
I set out to find some grain-free cookies that fit the bill–cookies that were crisp around the edges, but chewy and a tiny bit underbaked in the center.
