Best Ever Gluten Free Chocolate Chunk Coconut Cookies



I have been searching for the perfect gluten free cookie for a while. I find that usually gluten free baking will have a slight grainy texture or fall apart but...
OH.. MY .. GOSH
I am so surprised by how these cookies came out. They have the perfect texture and flavor, they don't taste gluten free at all!



They are soft and chewy with the perfect about of sweetness and go lovely when dunked in a cup of milk or tea.

Not to mention that they are low in fat and sugar!



Feel free to use chocolate chips if you don't have any chocolate to break into chunks. I used a very dark chocolate in this recipe and loved it. 

I also added in some coconut because why not?! Coconut is delicious. You can omit this if needed.
