Yesterday we found out our Miss 7 is gluten intolerant, and i am looking for a tried and tested cookie recipe. In the lead up to being diagnosed we’ve been doing a lot of ‘family baking’ and found a super awesome cookie recipe that we freeze the cookie dough and baked up in the morning a tray of cookies so the kids had fresh cookies for school lunch. however miss 7 was in tears tonight because i havent got a recipe to bake with. so if any MoM’s have a tried and tested family favourite recipe they would like to share with me. i would love to try it.

  • Have tried just replacing the flour with gluten free flour?


  • Recipe.coles.com.au hope you like the recipes on there.


  • Hope you have noticed the Dairy Free, Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies on here there is a picture and they look and sound wonderful, and I will be giving them a try.


  • You can find them easily on Google! Good luck


  • Gluten problems are hard work! I reccomend the 4 ingredients cook book that it gluten free. Easy easy recipes to start you on your path. Try these:

    125 grams butter, 4 tbsp caster sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 cup or 150 grams of GF plain flour, 75 grams or 1/2 cup of SR GF flour. Beat butter sugar and vanilla together. Add sifted flours and mix with a spoon. Shape into balls With your hands. Use a fork to flatten them. Cook at 170C or 15 minutes. Watch them just incase and line the trays with baking paper. They are cakey but they are a good basic you can add other things too.


  • I have Coeliacs disease and we are pretty certain my son (7) does as well. I have been gf for about 10 years and my son since he was 3. I use a lot of packet mixes for baking they are quick and easy. Well and Good brand is great. If your daughters school allow cakes for birthdays make some cupcakes and put them in the freezer at school so she doesnt miss out on. the packet mixes are awesome as there are normally a few different flours involved in baking but also i have experimented and substituted the flour for gf and they have sometimes worked. good luck it is a bit of a trial for transition but it is actually easy once you get the hang of it.
