Homemade Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Gluten-Free Chocolate Cookie Recipe

Photot (c) 2014 Teri Gruss
If you love classic Nestle Toll House cookies (and who doesn't?!) you'll love our recipe for homemade gluten-free chocolate chip cookies. Make this a chocolate mint chip cookie recipe by omitting the vanilla extract and adding one teaspoon of peppermint extract.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 11 minutes

Total Time: 26 minutes


  • 1 1/8 cup light buckwheat flour (see note)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (for chocolate mint chip cookies, use 1 teaspoon peppermint extract)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) gluten-free chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)


Preheat oven to 375° F / 190° C

Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper or lightly oil

Combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl and whisk to combine. In a large mixing bowl, combine egg and sugar and beat with an electric mixer on high until light and fluffy. Add butter and beat on high until combined. Add extract and beat briefly. Add dry ingredients and mix until combined. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts (optional).

For 1 dozen large cookies use a 2 tablespoon (1/8 cup) ice cream scoop or drop heaping tablespoons of dough on prepared baking sheets.

For 2 dozen small cookies use a 1 tablespoon ice cream scoop or a rounded tablespoon.

Bake in preheated oven for 9-11 minutes or until cookies are crisp on edges and slightly soft in the middle. Cool on baking sheet.

Note- I used Pocono Mills Light Buckwheat Flour in this recipe with good results but substitute your favorite gluten-free baking mix if you prefer.

Wow...can't tell they're gluten free, Member arugulagirl

This is a GREAT recipe. If I didn't make them myself I wouldn't have know they're gluten free. I didn't have vanilla or mint extract so omitted that and I used Bob's Red Mill gluten free/dairy free flour mix. I also added a half teaspoon of guar gum. Another thing I love about this recipe is its simplicity. It took no more time than regular Choc chip cookies. Family loved them!!! Thanks!!!
