What Gluten-Free Flour Is Best For Cookies?

Several gluten-free flour blends work well for cookies. I typically use King Arthur Measure for Measure, but I also like to use Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Flour, Pillsbury Gluten-Free Flour, Better Batter, and Cup4Cup Gluten-Free Flour.

Which gluten-free flour blend you use will affect what you bake. Read more about Why Gluten-Free Flour Blends Vary to learn more. You can also read more about Which Gluten Free Flour Works With Which Recipe Types.

Can You Make These Cookies Dairy-Free?

Yes, you can use dairy-free or vegan butter to make any of these cookie recipes dairy-free! Be sure to use a dairy-free chocolate chip like Enjoy Life if you are dairy-free.

  • Use room-temperature butter and eggs. I know that it sounds crazy to use butter and eggs at room temperature, but it dramatically helps how your cookies will turn out. You’ll thank yourself later if you try it.
  • Take special care to measure the gluten free flour correctly. If you add in too much gluten free flour or other ingredients, it can make your cookies too wet or too dry. If they don’t have the proper ratios of ingredients, you may end up with a disaster.
  • Chill the dough when possible. Some gluten-free flour blends are gritty, so letting the dough sit and chill helps to eliminate the grit! I know you are probably ready to eat your cookies right now, but taking a few minutes to chill the batter makes them less likely to spread.
  • Your oven temperature may be off. Periodically, check your oven temperature to ensure it’s accurate with an oven thermometer. Otherwise, the cookies will, for sure, spread if it’s not accurate.
  • Use a cooled cookie sheet when baking. Don’t take a hot cookie sheet and put the batter on it, or I promise the cookies won’t turn out. They start baking immediately, and it messes with the shape of the cookies. Use a couple of sheets and rotate them out when making large batches of cookies.
  • Don’t let the cookies sit on the pan too long. After they have baked, only let them sit for up to 5 minutes on the baking sheet. The pan will still be hot and continue baking them otherwise. I like to use parchment paper so I can slide the paper with the baked cookies onto a cooling rack.

I have a ton of Gluten-Free Baking Tips in my Gluten-Free Cookie Troubleshooting Guide.

Are the Ingredients Gluten-Free?

  • Chocolate Chips – Read here to see Are Chocolate Chips Gluten Free and get the list of gluten free safe brands.
  • Butter – Most butter brands are gluten-free, but you can read more about whether butter is gluten-free. You can also read about whether margarine is gluten free.
  • Baking Powder – Baking powder is also typically gluten free, but check the list to be sure your baking powder isn’t cross-contaminated. I also always recommend using aluminum-free baking powder!
  • Vanilla Extract – I typically recommend using pure vanilla extract in my cookie recipes. Pure vanilla extract is gluten free, but keep an eye on imitation and flavored vanilla because they may not be!
  • Brown Sugar – Brown sugar is very common in chocolate chip cookies. Find out if all brown sugar is gluten free.
  • Sugar – White sugar and coconut sugar are also typically gluten free.

Tools For Baking Gluten Free Cookies:
