Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies
Jump to the Recipe

When I wrote my first Gluten-Free on a Shoestring cookbook, I thought, I’m done! All the basic recipes, including thick & chewy gluten-free chocolate chip cookies, which to me were the only chocolate chip cookie a person could ever need? They’re all in there. Everything from gluten-free white sandwich bread and chicken pot pie to brioche and Irish soda bread (not to mention lemon chicken and gluten free popovers). No need to write a gluten-free blog, no need to write another gluten-free cookbook. No need! So … what do I do now?

Clearly, after some soul-searching, I got it. Just like there are all sorts of people, there are all sorts of gluten-free chocolate chip cookies (and every other type of gluten free food under the sun). And they’re not going to make themselves. Now I know which recipe is my favorite (but I don’t want to sway you). So it’s your turn! Hover over each photo for the recipe title, then click and the post with the whole recipe will open sesame in a new window.


Oh, and about those cookbooks? I got over that it’s-all-been-done-before mindset with those, too. Like, how about when you need to feed your family on a weeknight, and you need some Gluten-Free on a Shoestring Quick & Easy—am I right? ;)


P.S. What’s YOUR favorite type of gluten-free chocolate chip cookie? If it’s not here yet—tell me & maybe I’ll be able to make it happen!!

    Hey Sister! You are awesome and I’m so glad that you didn’t stop because this year cannot go fast enough until your bread cookbook comes out!!!! can we preorder yet! :)

    So, I found this recipe for a chocolate chip cookie and went to get some Erewhon(sp) gluten free cornflakes to get it started yesterday: http://cookingactress.blogspot.ca/2012/07/momofukus-cornflake-chocolate-chip.html
    Cookies like these make me jump for joy! :) Also, I was hoping someone would redo that famous nordstroms chocolate chip cookie recipe that floats around…. just sayin’!

    I’m a chewy chocolate chip cookie type person. Crunchy cookies of any type need not grace these lips. But my secret (past) love? Those giant ones that are made to be cookie cakes (with frosting, thank you very much). How do they get them so chewy? How?? Don’t give me cakes or cupcakes. I’ll take my frosting on a big old slice of cookie.

      I’d love to know this, too. Any ideas on how to make a gf cookie cake??

        I’ll do you one better than that, Mary Beth! I will make it and post about it. Love those!

      Oh, Donia, that’s a MUST MAKE! I have thought about posting a recipe for one of those cookie cakes a million times. And it must be frosted here and there with both white and blue buttercream (why? I have no idea but it must). Oh, I will be doing that for sure.

    The timing of this is funny. I had made the recipe for chewy chocolate chip cookies from one of you past blogs. Family loved it so much I decided to double the recipe for other family. I used the recipe in your cookbook though so I ended up with 5 dozen cookies!!!! Sometimes the most important thing to read is how many servings it makes! Both my mother in law and brother in law are happy that I made the mistake though.

    • gfshoestring

      That is a happy accident, indeed, ladoramartin. At least for your mother-in-law and brother-in-law!

    My grandchildren prefer the oatmeal chocolate chip cookie that I have made for years but my personal preference is the Boston Drop Cookie and I would fight you for those.(Well I guess I would share but I’d be eating fast.) I haven’t had any of these cookies for several years because I haven’t tried to convert them to gluten free. For Easter I baked over 12 dozen cookies and made Easter baskets filled with homemade cookies for the grandchildren. (It is really hard to not sneak a nibble of these cookies when they come out of the oven but the thought of how sick I get stops me cold.) Maybe I’d better get busy and try to convert that Boston Drop Cookie recipe.

    I have yet to try baking a gluten free chocolate chip cookie, even though I want one SO badly. I have to admit, I’m scared!

    It’s a tossup between the chocolate chip oatmeal and the cookie with the giant chocolate chunk pieces! With my love of chocolate, the big chunk may just win. Thank you for all the choices but my waistline might not thank you :-)

    I love everything you do – just wish I had the energy (CSF, post-triple cervical neck surg, 3 kids, 1st gc on the way & FT job I loathe & blooming art biz). I’m a very late in life GF person, so everything is compared to “the real” version. I got your 1st book last yr after diagnosis & have been hooked since! YOU are amazing to do all you do for us! CC cookies are SO necessary in life & you give us SO many choices! THANK YOU! The only thing I’d add is some alternative chips, like peanut butter, white chocolate and/or Heath bar pieces on occasion. We have a baby shower next week & that daughter is GF – so guess whose recipes will be on the table?!
