These gluten free chocolate chip cookies are just as soft, gooey, and chocolatey as any other chocolate chip cookie, you wouldn't even know they're gluten free!


  • 180g 1:1 gluten free flour
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 140g light brown sugar
  • 50g granulated sugar
  • 113g unsalted butter (room temp)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 115g chocolate, roughly chopped (+ more for topping)
  • flaky sea salt


  1. In a medium size bowl, whisk together the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, or in a bowl with an electric hand mixer, beat the sugars and butter on medium-high speed until light and paler in color, about 2-3 minutes. You may need to scrape down the bowl after a minute and keep beating to ensure everything is evenly incorporated.
  3. Add in the vanilla and egg and beat until fully combined.
  4. Then, add in the dry ingredients and mix on low speed until just combined.
  5. Lastly, fold in the chocolate.
  6. With a small cookie scoop, place balls of cookie dough on one baking sheet, top each with more chopped chocolate, and freeze for at least 15 minutes.
  7. While the dough is in the freezer, preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Place the cookie dough 2 inches apart on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for about 12 minutes.


  • I do not recommend skipping the chill time. Freezing the cookie dough ensures that they do not spread too much in the oven.
  • Always lean toward slightly under-baking your cookies, as they will bake slightly more while they cool on the baking sheet.
  • To get perfectly round cookies, use a large round cookie or biscuit cutter to round out each cookie immediately after they come out of the oven.
