How To Make Double Chocolate Chip Gluten Free Cookies- Step by Step

Full directions in recipe card below.

Pre-heat Oven to 350 degrees F.

  1. Melt Butter over low heat, turn off the flame, and cool to room temperature.
  2. Place Gluten-Free Flour, Sugar, Light Brown Sugar, Salt, Baking Soda, and Cocoa Powder in a large mixing bowl and combine thoroughly.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk eggs and add vanilla and cooled butter. Blend.
  4. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Combine well.
  5. Add semi-sweet and milk chocolate chips. Mix until well combined. I used my hands. It’s a thick, sticky cookie dough. Fold the dough several times until all the chocolate chips are integrated thoroughly.
  6. Using a large cookie scoop, measure six cookie dough balls per prepared baking tray with a silicon liner or parchment paper. The recipe makes 18 large cookies.
  7. Bake for 15-18 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Do not overbake, or the cookies will be dry. Remove them from the oven and let them rest for 20 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack. They will firm up as they come to room temperature.

Tips & Tricks

  • Be careful not to bake for too long. Every oven is different so watch carefully once they start to spread out. Take them out as soon as they start to set up. They will firm up as they cool.
  • For best results, gently scoop or spoon your flour into the measuring cups and level it off with a knife. This will prevent you from using too much flour.

Storage

Store in an airtight container for up to 4 days. Alternatively, you can freeze the cookies.

Additions and Substitutions

  • You can use any chocolate chips you desire. For a fudgy texture, I recommend mixing a milk chocolate chip with a semi-sweet or dark chocolate chip. I love Guittard Chocolate Baking Chips.

Frequently Asked Questions for Chocolate Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Why are my gluten-free cookies dry and crumbly?

The key to gluten-free cookie baking is extra moisture. Trying several gluten-free cookie recipes taught me that extra butter helps gluten-free cookie dough stay together. The second tip is to use a gluten-free flour blend with xanthan gum, which acts as a binder or gluten replacement. The other alternative is to use a gluten-free flour blend with sticky rice flour and tapioca starch included.
