Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Sticks
These Pesach (gluten free) chocolate chip sticks are so good, you would not even believe they were kosher for Passover!
I developed this recipe a few years ago, a few days before Pesach, in my mothers kitchen which was at the time already kosher for passover. When they were cooling on the counter my daughter walked in, had one, and exclaimed: “You can’t have Chametz in Abuela’s kitchen!”. They look and taste like regular chocolate chip sticks which on Pesach is a huge deal 😉
These chocolate chip sticks are made with a mix of almond flour and potato starch in place of the flour. They are the perfect gluten free treat and therefore I love having this recipe in my back pocket for when we have gluten free company.

On Passover I love going back to basics and cooking and baking the most simplest foods. That’s why this is a family staple for us on Pesach. Chocolate chip sticks are so classic and delicious, its the perfect addition to every Pesach kitchen.
