20 Gluten-Free Cookie Recipes

Substitutes and creative adaptations yield delicious results

A gluten-free diet no longer means restricting cakes, cookies, and other batter- and dough-based treats. A variety of wheat-flour substitutes and creative recipe adaptations put cookies in the hands of people following gluten-free diets for health reasons. Although the recipes all call for naturally gluten-free ingredients, cross-contamination can occur during processing of some products, such as oats, so be sure to check the packaging for a gluten-free label and reach out to the manufacturer with questions. Choose from recipes ranging from simple to sublime the next time you need to satisfy a sweet tooth.
