Double Chocolate Chip Cookies – Gluten Free

Shopping is something I love doing! Either shopping online or walking around the mall for some exercise. But, food shopping has to be one of my favorite kinds of shopping!! I don’t know what it is, but I love looking at all the different types of food a store has and sometimes getting inspiration to make something at home. My love for food shopping increased when I went to college because I could eat anything I wanted and it was a good break from studying.

Last weekend, my mom and I food shopping and I saw all these baked goods near the front of the store. Muffins, bread, cookies, cupcakes…everything! And it’s probably due to the holidays that are coming up that they had an extra selection of holiday decorated items that looked so yummy! But, the voice inside me told me to stay away…which is why when I got home I decided to make some cookies of my own! I saw these double chocolate chip cookies in the store, so I tried to make my own gluten-free version! Enjoy!
