Could this be the best gluten-free chocolate chip cookie recipe ever? Made with quinoa flour and coconut oil, this cookie will surprise you with flavor and texture. They’re so easy to make and best of all, you’d never know they’re gluten-free or made without butter!

The BEST Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies made with coconut oil and quinoa flour

There should be an explanation for my absence from the blog. As in, why would I leave you this long without a recipe? Shame on me. I do that a lot. But hey, I’m back now and I made you cookies!

First, how was your weekend? I had a little mini vaca in Arizona; it made me realize how much I miss the warmth of the sunshine. I swear just being outside brought a smile to my face. When will someone figure out how to create Vitamin D cigarettes? You know without any junk. Just pure vitamin D. I’d puff on that energy. For reals.

In all seriousness, I love mini vacations because it gives me time to relax, forget about work and just enjoy the little things in life. Like margaritas. Lots of them.

Besides margs, Tony and I hiked Camelback mountain, consumed frozen yogurt til our bellies hurt, and saw the second 300 movie in 3D. We’re kind of movie nerds BTW.

Wanna know what else I did? Worked out every single day while I was there! Usually I bring my Jillian Michaels DVDs when I travel and never end up using them, but this time I had no excuses; the weather was beautiful enough to run outside. Even if it was only three or four miles, it felt good to get my exercise in.

Well and you know… when I’m not working out my main thoughts are about cookies. Outrageously delicious, ooey-gooey, mind-blowing cookies.

A lightened up coconut oatmeal healthy banana bread with a few chocolate chips — you don’t have to feel guilty enjoying a slice or two!

You guyssssssss. I have made so many banana breads over the last few days. Sometimes I wish I could stop baking but when I get the urge to, I just can’t stop. I think I’m an addict.

HELLLLLPPPPPP.

Due to my baking urges, I’m often up late at night; unfortunately I don’t get the chance to photograph the recipe since it’s dark and because I’m a little bit of a perfectionist. But sometimes I just want to share a recipe with you right away so I took these photos with my iPhone… hope you don’t mind!
