Made these in no time! They are hands down delicious and taste just like cookies made with butter (I used canola oil). Highly recommend!!

These are wonderful!! My son is allergic to wheat, corn, rice, egg whites....and I used the Gluten Free All Purpose Flour from Red Mill, and they were amazing. I had to hide them from my two boys. We couldn't find anything for him to eat...thank you!!

These cookies are delicious! I made them with half the sugar and I substituted a mashed banana for the applesauce. Perfect. You can also just grease the pan with oil.

Thank you! Absolutely one of the best GF/Vegan cookie recipes we have tried. Our daughter has an eosinphilic disorder and many dietary restrictions. The whole family loves these. YUM and YUM and easy to make!

Love this recipe. We have had these cookies from Babycakes in NYC & in Downtown Disney. They are so unbelievably good! Even our non-allergy family & friends love them! We are a gluten-free, dairy(casein)-free and peanut free family. We can\'t get enough of these!

This was my first attempt at gluten, dairy, egg free cookies and they were GREAT! I honestly cannot tell the difference. No weird taste, and super easy to make. These cookies are the best!!

For a first time effort at baking gluten free, these were really easy once I managed to find all the ingredients at 3 different stores! They are totally delicious, although I ended up wiht regular chocolate chips as I couldnt come up with gluten-free/dairy free chips.

Is there a typo in the recipe? 2 TABLESPOONS of vanilla? Next time, I will try 2 teaspoons, and I LOVE vanilla. Texture and taste were good. I substituted 1/2c of cacao nibs for 1/2c of choc. chips, and added 1/2c of chopped walnuts. I will definitely make this recipe again!

This looks like it is the perfect recipe for what I need. I have a friend who is allergic to eggs, peanuts and wheat and badly allergic to milk. Unfortunatelyits hard to find vegan chocolate chips that aren't made on the same equipment that makes milk/peanut products. Can anyone help?

If you are unable to find vegan chocolate chips that are diary and nut free on the shelves of your local grocery stores, you may be able to find them at a specialty foods store, health food store, or online.

These are good, BUT, nothing like what they sell at the babycakes NYC bakery! Took extra time to cook, didn't flatten at all without help, and a much grainier texture. Coconut oil tastes great though.

In the book McKenna mentions that these are the thin and chewy type, I prefer mine thick and chewy so I added 1/4 cup of rice flour and decreased the oil by 2 Tablespoons. That was enough to get that thicker "soft baked" style. Great recipe would highly recommend.

I love these cookies. I sub xylitol for the sugar and grapeseed oil for the coconut oil for my allergies and they are delicious. They are also approved by my friends that aren't gluten free. Super easy and a crowd pleaser!

Made these as a going away "gift" for a colleague who has been restricted to gluten, dairy, soy, nut and egg free eating while being tested for allergies. The whole office devoured them. There's no way you could tell they weren't prepared the "traditional" way.

These cookies have potential. Straight from recipe, they are rather nasty tasting (pretty sure it is the flax). However, the texture is really close to a true cookie.
