Gluten-Free (Dairy-Free, Egg-Free) Chocolate Chip Cookies

I was trying to find a Gluten-Free recipe for cookies that taste good but also not too thin and spread out when baking them. After a few combination of flour mix. I have gotten a combination with a result that I wanted. It tastes like a regular chocolate chip cookies that my son can't get his hands off.

The following recipe will make around 18-20 cookies.

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes

  • 1 stick salted butter, softened *
  • 1/2 cup of packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of GF vanilla extract
  • 1 egg **
  • Silkie Flour Mix (1/3 cup each of brown rice flour, white rice flour, tapioca flour, 1/4 cup of cornstarch, 1/8 cup of soy flour) ***
  • 1 3/8 teaspoon of xanthan gum ****
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup of chocolate chips*****
  • 2 tbsp of milk

For Dairy-Free and Egg-Free version substitie the following:
* Butter substitue: 1 Stick of Willow Run Soy Margarine or 1/2 cup of oil
** Egg substitute: 1 teaspoon baking powder + 1 1/2 tablespoon warm water + 1 1/2 tablespoon oil
***** instead of chocolate chips, use coco powder instead

If the dough seems a little bit dry, add 2 tablespoon of ricemilk.

If  Gluten-Free is not what you desire, replace the Silkie flour mix *** to use the regular flour and remove xanthan gum **** completely.

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degree
  2. Use mixer to cream butter (oil for dairy-free version), brown sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla for a minute, then add egg (egg substitute for egg-free version), mix until incorporated.
  3. Add the Silkie Flour mix, xanthan gum, baking soda, milk and salt to the mixer. Mix until the ingredients well blended together.
  4. Mix in the chocolate chips.
  5. Use a teaspon or a scooper, drop dough balls (about 1 inch in diameter) onto cookie sheets about 2 inches apart.
  6. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until lightly golden on top. Rest the cookies for about 5-10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
