Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies (gluten-free w/ dairy-free option)


Today's recipe is super simple and takes just under 20 minutes to make. Living with 3 roommates makes me think even more about dietary restrictions and allergies. As a person who tries to steer clear of gluten and dairy, I have only focused on limiting those factors in my recipes. However, since I got to school I have been playing around with desserts that also eliminate most nuts, since one of my roommates is extremely allergic to peanuts, almonds, hazelnuts, and more. As many people know, having allergies or sensitivities to food is something that can make eating a little bit more difficult, but it is very doable with the right recipes and resources.

If anyone has any specific food allergies, feel free to comment them below! I'd love to make a recipe that fits your needs too!
