- Gluten free flour blend
- Brown sugar
- Baking powder
- Baking soda
- Chocolate chips
- Chopped walnuts
Add your dry ingredients to a bowl and whisk to blend.
I have tested three gluten free flour blends in this recipe. I liked King Arthur Gluten Free Measure for Measure and Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Flour Blend. This doesn't mean other blends won't work, I just haven't tested any others. Try to avoid flour blends that are high in starch.
As always, if your blend does not contain Xanthan Gum, you will need to add 1 teaspoon.
In a smaller bowl, add your wet ingredients and whisk to blend. Pour the wet ingredients on top of your dry ingredients. Add the chocolate chips and nuts.
Make them nut-free:
If you can't eat nuts and are a nut-free household, omit the walnuts. You can substitute something else like freeze-dried strawberries.
You can also use a standing mixer if you prefer for making this simple cookie recipe!
Bake the cookies at 350 degrees F. This cookie dough will spread out when baking so leave an inch or two between each cookie dough ball.
Customize your cookies with even more of your favorite things. Here are some great ideas to try:
- Peanut butter chips
- Heath candy pieces
- Mini marshmallows
- Raisins or different dried fruits
You can definitely use different nuts. I also love to use pecans and macadamia nuts! If you want to try a great cookie recipe with macadamia nuts, give this easy gluten free cranberry macadamia nut cookie recipe a try.
Most chocolate chips are gluten free, but my favorites are Ghirardelli, Enjoy Life, Whole 365 (Whole Foods private label), and Hershey's.
These cookies will bake in 8-10 minutes, or when the tops are slightly golden brown. If you are making large oversized cookies, you will need to adjust the baking time longer.
You can easily make these dairy-free by using vegan stick butter and ensuring the chocolate chip brand is dairy-free, like Enjoy Life brand.
These gluten free banana bars are another great way to use chocolate chips in a dessert recipe!
Are you ready to make some cookies? I advise making a double batch and freezing the extras because these cookies freeze really well.
To freeze them, allow the cookies to cool completely. Place the cookies in a freezer-safe plastic bag.
