Simple Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Gluten free chocolate chip cookies are the best in your pocket recipe. When it’s been a hard day and you want a little pick me up, you can whip up these cookies quickly.

A little soft and gooey (especially when warm) and crisp on the edges. These cookies are perfect with a glass of milk or cup of tea. You can eat them all in one sitting, share with friends, or freeze extra for later. Frozen cookies are perfect for nibbling on during hot days.

I start by combining the gluten free flour, baking soda and salt together in a small bowl and setting it aside.

I use Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 gluten free flour blend. It’s locally made and I can get a great deal on a giant 20lb bag of it. You can use another kind of all purpose gluten free flour but it will likely change the texture of the cookies and you might have to tweak the other ingredients to get the right consistency.

Next, I set up my stand mixer and cream together the butter, brown sugar and white sugar. This was my favorite part to sample as a kid. The combo of the sugars with the butter is a sweet and salty treat all on its own. Once creamy, turn the mixer to low and add in the eggs and vanilla and mix until smooth.

Keeping the mixer on low, slowly add in the flour mixture and mix until a dough forms. Then add in the chocolate chips mix until just combined.

I use a large spoon or melon baller to scoop out golf ball sized pieces of dough and I place them on a lined or greased cookie sheet. They bake at 350F for 10-12 minutes. I usually do it for 12 because I like crisper cookies.

Once they are done baking let them chill out on the counter for a few minutes to frim up before transferring to a cooling rack. Otherwise they might crack or fall apart.

I also have my classic chocolate chip cookie recipe on the blog. The difference between them? Oat Flour. The other recipe uses powdered oats in the recipe which results in a denser and chewier cookie. You can also check out my oatmeal cookies, chocolate cookies, and gingerbread cookie recipes.
