My Favorite Gluten Free Chocolate Cookies

My all-time favorite gluten free chocolate cookies are the best because they don’t make you choose between deliciously chewy, fudgy brownies and sock-it-to-you rich chocolate cookies. Bonus: these gluten free chocolate cookies are easy to make, made with whole, simple & healthy ingredients, and they’ll be the hit your non-gluten free friends never saw coming. (Like, totally feel free to not tell them these chocolate cookies are gluten free. *Wink wink*) 

The Taste: Gluten Free Chocolate Cookies

When naming these cookies, I debated whether or not to call them gluten free chocolate brownies cookies, or just straight up classic gluten free chocolate cookies. Why? Because they’re the perfect combo of both. Rich, deep chocolate flavor bursts throughout every mouthwatering morsel of these gluten free chocolate cookies.

The first bite goes a little something like this: you hear an almost audible crackling when you bite right into the crispy, shiny shell (à la perfect brownie top), then delightful chocolate flavor bursts on your tongue and melty gooey chocolate morsels and chewy chocolate cookie goodness lead you to gluten free chocolate cookie perfection.

Bonus? These gluten free chocolate cookies are vegan, dairy-free, refined sugar-free and delicious.

Gluten Free Chocolate Cookies – the BEST Brownie Cookies!


Description

Gluten Free Chocolate Cookies: chewy & moist gluten free brownie cookies with a crispy exterior and LOTS of chocolate packed in! The BEST gluten free chocolate brownie cookie recipe EVER.


Ingredients

Scale

Dry Ingredients

  • 1 ¼ cup gluten free oat flour – if using homemade oat flour, make sure it’s very finely ground (not coarse)*
  • ½ cup + 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/3 teaspoon salt

Wet Ingredients

Add-ins

Optional Topping


Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or greased foil. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together all the wet ingredients, until well mixed.
  4. Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture. Whisk as long as you can. Switch to stirring and folding with a rubber spatula until no flour patches remain. Fold in chocolate chips.
  5. Cover bowl and chill in the freezer for about 20 minutes, until firm throughout. If necessary, allow to thaw at room temperature just until it’s soft enough to scoop, but still very firm and chilled.
  6. Using a small or medium cookie scoop, scoop and drop cookie dough balls onto the prepared cookie sheet, evenly spaced apart. Cookies will spread a bit. Using the palm of your hand, press down on the cookie balls to flatten about halfway for thick cookies, or flatten considerably for just slightly thick cookies.
  7. Bake for 12-16 minutes. Mine took 14 minutes. Optionally, press more chocolate chips into the tops of cookies. Place baking sheet on cooling rack and allow cookies to cool on the sheet for about 10 minutes. Transfer cookies directly onto the cooling rack to cool completely before storing. Storing instructions below. Enjoy!

  1. These were amazing last night! My husband and kids had NO idea that they were dairy-free and vegan-friendly! Fooled them cause we ate the whole batch last night. Thank you!

  2. OOH! Can’t wait to try these! Unfortunately I’m highly allergic to oats. Wondering if you tried any other flours (Bob’s Red Mill 1to1) in development stage. Any thoughts on swapping out would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for posting!

  3. This the best of both worlds for brownie and cookie fans. I love a chocolate cookie and love that it is GF. My son’s friend is GF and this is something I can offer when he comes over as well as the rest of his friends. No one is left out. Love it!

  4. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more perfect chocolate cookies — and you’re so right, the tops look just like a fresh baked brownie. My husband is going to LOVE these!

  5. I love brownies and cookies, but it’s so hard to choose which one to bake and enjoy! With these brownie cookies I get the best of both worlds!
