If you love sugar cookies, these gluten free funfetti sugar cookies with funfetti sprinkles will be difficult to resist! Rainbow sprinkles make these gluten free cookies festive for any occasion.
Kids love the bright colors and you will love how easy it is to make funfetti cookies! This recipe also makes an incredible chocolate chip cookie too! Keep reading because I made a fun video to show you how easy these cookies are to make!
Who says sprinkles are just for kids?
Why should they get all of the fun?? Well, it is time to let your inner child out to have some fun. These sprinkle filled sugar cookies are crisp on the edges and they just melt in your mouth once you take a bite. The sprinkles make these that much better :-).
Funfetti aka Unicorn Food is a fun way to add some color to your baking. I am taking the high road and not calling these cookies unicorn food because my teen daughter will rebel against them!
Cookies don’t get any better than these gluten free funfetti “unicorn cookies”.
My daughter has been asking for gluten free cookies lately…but not any gluten free funfetti cookies. She wanted something more girly. I have to admit, I was thrown for a loop over this request. My daughter is not the pink sparkly girly type.
Do you think cookies can be girly?
Maybe she was just testing me :-). Regardless, she loved the cookies. (And so did her brother, who we decided NOT to tell that these were “girly” unicorn cookies.)
Do you want to know a special bonus about these cookies? They are filled with almond flour. A full cup of finely ground almond flour. Sneaking some protein into these cookies, which I love to do to, helps balance out the sugars.
Just in case you are laughing at my new Wifey coffee mug, there is a story behind it. Mr. Fearless Dining is always stealing my coffee. Our mugs mostly are the same, and he “claims” he can’t tell whose cup of coffee when a mug is on the counter.
It is funny he always chooses the mug that has the most coffee in it :-).”
Anyways, I found these Wifey and Hubby mugs at Target last week…and problem solved! He would definitely be caught red-handed if he is holding my Wifey mug!
Funfetti sprinkles can come in many different colors, by many different brands. You can choose rainbow brights, pastels, or even shades of the same color. These sprinkles can come in lines like what I have, circles, and other shapes.
These funfetti cookies are soft and delicious…but just a tiny bit crispy on the ends. It is so easy to make funfetti cookies from scratch, just grab your favorite rainbow sprinkles!
Here are the step by step instructions to make these gluten free funfetti cookies:
Add the dry ingredients to a bowl and whisk to blend thoroughly. Feel free to substitute coconut sugar for the regular sugar. Just note the color of the cookies will be more brownish.
Add the eggs, melted butter, and vanilla to a bowl and whisk to blend. Whip until it is well blended.
Add the rainbow sprinkles and mix the wet and dry ingredients together.
Use a cookie scoop to drop the cookie dough balls onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake at 350F Degrees for 8-10 minutes. Remove to a cooling rack to cool.
Here is the video to tie it all together!

How to make this funfetti cookie recipe:
Easy rainbow sprinkle gluten free sugar cookies

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a mixer, add all of the wet ingredients and mix on low until blended.

Slowly add the dry ingredients to the mixer, keeping the speed on slow.
(In a separate bowl, add the dry ingredients and whisk to blend. Pour in wet ingredients. Add the sprinkles and mix well.)
Add the sprinkles to the mixer.
