  • ¾ cup ground roasted chestnuts
  • 1 cup Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Flour *see note
  • ½ cup sugar feel free to use less if you plan to dip these in chocolate
  • ½ cup butter melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • Preheat oven to 350º F.
  • In a grinder or food processor, grind chestnuts to medium texture blend.
  • Add all dry ingredients into a large bowl and whisk to blend.
  • In a small bowl, add butter, vanilla and egg.
  • Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix well.
  • Drop by scoop onto a greased cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes until done.
  • Remove and allow to cool on a cooling rack.
  • Optional, dip the bottom into chocolate. I used this Wilton chocolate.


  1. If your flour blend has xanthan gum included great. If the blend you are using doesn't have it, add 1 teaspoon.
  2. Use a cuisinart, food processor, or Vitamix to grind up your roasted chestnuts into a fine grind.
  3. These cookies will keep up to 4 days in an air-tight container, or up to 4 months in the freezer.
