How Has Your Grocery Shopping Changed?

Every Wednesday, Bon Appétit executive editor Sonia Chopra shares what’s going on at BA—the stories she’s loved reading, the recipes she’s been making, and more. If you sign up for our newsletter , you’ll get her letter before everyone else. Here’s a fun thing about my job: Every so often, I get to test recipes before they go live on our websites or into the pages of the magazine. It’s standard practice at publications like Bon Appétit and Epicurious to have multiple editors cook through recipes before they are published to make sure they will work for, well, people like me: cooking enthusiasts who are not necessarily trained kitchen experts. The first time I volunteered, I was totally in my head about it, afraid I didn’t have the chops to be useful and that I was wasting our food team’s time. But now I like to take on a recipe once a month or so, especially when it sounds particularly delicious (most do!) or will push me to try something new. For example, I don’t fry a lot of thing

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Kids love chocolate chip cookies, but finding one that is gluten free and allows your child to enjoy the treats that other kids take for granted isn't always an easy task. 

Even some chocolate chips are processed on equipment that is not always free of the allergen that troubles them. One answer to this is using buckwheat flour to create recipes. Despite its name, buckwheat is not true wheat.

 It is gluten free, according to the Celiac disease website and offers a lot of protein and iron on top of being gluten free. Creating chocolate chip cookies from buckwheat, which is a good substitute for traditional flour makes them a tiny bit heavier but allows your kids to have the treat that they want, and you want to give them.

You will need:

  • 1 and 1/4 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp. soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (remember to check the package to ensure they are gluten free)

To make:

Combine the dry ingredients except the sugar Whip together softened butter, egg and sugar Mix the sugar mixture with the remaining dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.

Stir in chocolate chips 

Drop by rounded teaspoons into a lined cookie sheet.

Bake at 375 degrees for 9-12 minutes.
