Easy Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe was sent to us by reader, Laura Leggett. She tells us that:

“For me, being a university student and having celiac disease can be a challenge. Most of the classic university foods are all untouchable, making it hard to have a treat. However, this cookie recipe looks and tastes like classic homemade chocolate chip cookies, and only uses one flour, so it is super easy! A warm cookie and a glass of milk after class is what everyone needs after a long day.”
