Gluten Free Passover Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe FAQ
Yes! These cookies are delicious when made with 2 tablespoon room temperature butter instead of oil. If using butter cream butter and sugar together first then add remaining ingredients. Keep in mind that this recipe is non-dairy and pareve as written; if you use butter the recipe will be dairy.
Absolutely. Make these cookies keto friendly by replacing the brown sugar for dry sweeter such as erythritol or xylitol. I have not tried making them with liquid sweetener such as honey.
Allow cookies to cool completely then store in an airtight container on the counter for a few days. They can also be frozen for a few months in an airtight container or freezer bag.
These cookies do not contain any matzo meal. This recipe uses almond meal and is therefore gluten-free.
Fortunately we live in an age where we have plenty of kosher brands of chocolate chips. This list can change from year to year and can also depend on your local Rabbi but we like to rely on the Chicago Rabbinical Council Passover list.
