Feature: Jumbo Double Chocolate Cookies: Great for Summer Picnics and Gluten-Free, Too

Jumbo Double Chocolate Cookies are a perfect answer to the problem of making brownie-like cookies without gluten and without (dare we say it?) fat.

How can that be, you may wonder?

Even better about this recipe is that it’s got two kinds of chocolate. Cocoa and chocolate chunks combine to make a dense cookie that tastes a lot like a brownie.

The result is a fudgey, deep chocolate flavor but without a heavy texture. By dropping dough in large scoops, you can make jumbo cookies.

Prep time: 15-20 minutes
Bake time: 12-17 minutes
Makes about 2 dozen jumbo cookies
