Units Scale
  • 1 and 1/2 cups Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour – We used Bob’s Red Mill
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 8 Tablespoons Melted Butter
  • 1/3 cup Light Brown Sugar
  • 2/3 cup Granulated White Sugar
  • 1 Egg and 1 Egg Yolk Whisked
  • 1 Tablespoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 2 cups Milk Chocolate Chips


  1. Preheat the Oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Melt butter over low heat and bring to room temperature
  3. Whisk flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium mixing bowl
  4. Mix melted, cooled butter and sugar in a separate large bowl until smooth.
  5. Add whisked eggs and vanilla extract to the butter mixture.
  6. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
  7. Let dough rest for 10 minutes. The Cookie Dough will be sticky and soft.
  8. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Use an oiled spring-loaded cookie scoop to portion the dough balls about 2 inches apart. Bake one cookie sheet at a time for 11-13 minutes.
  9. Do not overbake, as the cookies will continue to set as they cool. Transfer to a wire rack after 5 minutes.
  10. Once the baked cookies are completely cool, store them in an airtight container on the counter. Cookies taste best freshly baked.
  11. The recipe makes 24 small cookies or 12 large cookies.

  • Store in an airtight container on the counter. Cookies are best eaten within one day for maximum freshness.
  • You can substitute white chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips or semi-sweet chocolate chips in this recipe.
  • Can I freeze chocolate chip cookie dough?

    You can freeze gluten-free chocolate chip cookie dough balls. Place them on a sheet pan and flash-freeze for one hour before transferring the dough balls to a plastic bag or airtight freezer-safe container. You can freeze cookie dough balls for up to three months. I recommend labeling and dating the frozen cookies. When ready to bake, place them on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper and turn your oven to 350 degrees. Place the sheet pan in the oven with frozen dough balls spaced 2 inches apart. It might take a few extra minutes for cookies to bake. You can individually wrap frozen cookies. This way, you can always have a warm cookie!
