Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

G. Massey


Chocolate chip cookies are my husband's favorites, and he says that these are the best he's ever had. Crisp, chewy, buttery, these are satisfying and delicious.

pinch tips: How to Melt and Soften Butter




15 Min


30 Min


1 1/2 c
almond meal
1/2 c
rice flour
1/4 c
potato flour
1 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp
sea salt
2 stick
unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 c
brown sugar, packed
1/2 c
white sugar
2 tsp
pure vanilla extract
2 large
12 oz
package semi-sweet organic chocolate chips
rice flour or potato flour, reserved

Directions Step-By-Step

PREHEAT oven to 325° F.

Grease two large cookie sheets and set aside
Combine flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl.

Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Gradually stir in flour mixture. When it's all added, test the stickiness of the dough. If it's very sticky, slowly add more potato flour 1/4 cup at a time and stirring each time until the consistency seems right. They should hold their shape when rolled into a ball, but not be stiff and flaky.

Add the chocolate chips and stir. If you'd like to add chopped nuts, now is the time to add those as well.
Roll the dough into balls about the size of a walnut in its shell. These cookies spread, so drop them on the cookie sheet at least four inches apart the first time till you can see how much they're spreading.

These cookies burn very quickly. I put them in for 8 minutes and then start checking. When the top is no longer doughy and the edges are just starting to turn brown, take them out and let them sit on the pan for a couple of minutes before taking them off.
Since these are high in fat and protein from the almond flour (good fat, though!) we have found that we can only eat a couple each before we're full, and the next day they're a little crumbly.

What I recommend is laying out a sheet of baking parchment or waxed paper, rolling the dough into balls and spacing all that you're not going to bake right away out on the paper. Roll them up and put them in a gallon Ziploc baggie. Then you can pull out a few dough nuggets any time you want to bake a few cookies. The dough freezes quite well, and there's nothing like a fresh-baked chocolate chip cookie!
