Best Gluten Free Cookie Reources

by National Cookie Network

After our youngest daughter’s checkup last year, our pediatrician suggested a two-week trial of a gluten-free diet. I was skeptical, but willing to give it a shot. By no means was she suffering from Celiac’s disease  but she was having frequent tummy aches and sinus-related troubles. Allergen testing had been inconclusive but the doc did see signs of gluten intolerance. I totally get it that there’s a huge difference between someone suffering from Celiacs and someone who might be gluten intolerant. I also am well aware that every so often there is a dietary wave of things that we must avoid– gluten, being the latest such phenomenon. However, in our case, we actually did see a big change in our daughter in the two weeks she strictly avoided gluten. It’s going on a year now and she’s had none of the sinus allergy problems that have plagued us in years past and the tummy aches have disappeared entirely. We’ve perfected many of the recipes we always loved, including cookies, by trial and error; new, better gluten-free flours and the wealth of information, recipes and cookbooks available online. Here one of our favorites:
Nicole Hunn started Gluten-Free on a Shoestring, in March 2009, and went on to write two cookbooks. Her website is an invaluable, free resource for so many amazing gluten-free recipes (including many classic cookies).On her blog she’s organized her recipes visually by category, making it so easy to pin your favorites for quick access and inspiration.
