This recipe for wheat, peanut, soy free chocolate chip cookies was submitted by Anne B. of Baraboo, Wisconsin.
Anne provides some substitution ideas to make the classic Nestle Toll House chocolate chip cookie recipe. Following are her ideas:
To make wheat, peanut and soy free chocolate cookies I used the same ‘ol Toll-House cookie recipe on the back of the chocolate chips using the following substitutions:
- Baker’s brand chocolate chunks (not produced in a facility that works with nuts and soy-lecithin is “OK” per our doctor)
- Butter instead of shortening (we’re not avoiding dairy)
- GARBANZO BEAN FLOUR (1:1 ratio) instead of wheat flour
- Added 1/2 tsp xanthan gum per cup of flour
No one could tell these we’re the “real mc coy” and someone actually tried to take the cookie away from my son (in good conscience – thought it had wheat).
If you’re avoiding dairy, you could use “safe” chocolate chips (like Enjoy Life brand) and “safe” shortening or margarine. Thanks for the sharing, Anne!
