The Best Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients

· 1 stick butter (1/2 cup)· 1 tablespoon milk (or almond milk)· 3/4 cup brown sugar· 1/4 cup white sugar· 1 egg· 2 teaspoons vanilla· 1 1/3 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour (I highly recommend this brand for best results - be sure to get one that contains xanthan gum)· 1/4 cup almond flour· 1 teaspoon baking soda· 1/2 teaspoon salt· 1 cup chocolate chips· Sea salt for sprinkling (optional)

Instructions

Step 1In a medium bowl, whisk together the gluten-free flour, almond flour, baking soda and salt until evenly combined. Set aside.Step 2Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Once the butter is melted start to whisk constantly. First the butter will begin to foam, then after a couple of minutes it will begin to brown on the bottom of the saucepan. Turn off the heat as soon as the solids turn brown and the butter gives off a nutty aroma. Pour into a glass mixing bowl to prevent burning.Step 3Add the milk, brown sugar and white sugar. Whisk to combine. Add the egg and vanilla and whisk until smooth and creamy.Step 4Using a rubber spatula, mix in the dry ingredients until well combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.Step 5Cover the bowl and let sit for 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350F. Scoop the cookie dough (about 2 Tablespoons of dough per cookie) and place a few inches apart on the baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until golden and the center is set.Step 6Let cool 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to continue cooling. Enjoy!
