Crispy Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies


Home alone on Sunday night and the cookie monster started lurking about.

    Meghan, I used coconut and brown rice flour and chia instead of flax....added some extra water and wow delicious as a Wednesday night treat. Thank-you for another great recipe.....made your shepherd's pie with bison instead of the beans on Sunday and it was a hit with everyone. Yummy!! Keep on creating!! Ann

    I used Buckwheat and Brown Rice flour and they were delicious and actually super soft! Thanks for the recipe!

      So glad you made it your own and enjoyed it!

    I'm new to the world of ghee and coconut oil and am wondering if I melt them to liquid form before mixing?
    • Meghan Telpner said…
      They would be easier to work with that way. Similar to how you might use butter.

    Baked these cookies last night, they came out absolutely yummy!!! I just can't seem to figure out why mine flattened out as I was dropping spoonfuls onto the parchment paper and even more while they were baking. They came out completely flat :-/ Is that how they are supposed to be? If not what could I have done wrong? Thank you and thank you for a yummy morning treat!! Rachel

      Hmm, I'm not sure. Mine were pretty flat too but not unusually so. Wonder if it has to do with the temp of your oven.

    I just made these cookies and followed the recipe exactly and the dough was on the thin side which I though might be normal since they are suppose to be a crunchy cookie. While baking the cookies ran together covering the entire bottom of the cookie sheet. I have know idea what I did wrong...??? I salvaged them by cutting them into squares which made them very thin bar like cookies. They are very tastey but would like to know what I could do to make them correctly.

      Hi Michelle - these are a wetter cookie, and depending on your climate & the humidity in your apartment (and your oven's internal temp) they may turn out differently. I suggest playing around with the dry ingredients to get a stiffer cookie. Have fun!

    Meghan, just wondering what a good substitute for millet flour would be? Could I just use buckwheat instead? Thanks so much for sharing this recipe - it sounds awesome! :)

    Meghan Telpner, I am assuming the flour additives are in cups? The recipe here doesn't really say. It says, 1/2 millet flour and 1/2 all purpose gluten free flour. Am I right? Jan

    I keep chia pudding in my fridge for when the snack attack strikes at night. I know it will satiate me and the fun flavours I come up with make it more exciting - like cacao vanilla bean or raspberry peach.
