Chocolate chip cookies (Gluten & dairy free)

My gluten and dairy free chocolate chip cookies have been revamped and are better than ever. They are soft and gooey on the inside, filled with melty chocolate chunks and are the perfect treat! The best part is you can fill them with whatever you like – chocolate, white chocolate, smarties, cranberries or more! If you do make them don’t forget to tag me over on social media.

You will need:

270g gluten free plain flour

140g dairy free butter (I use the Stork Perfect for Baking gold packet)

140g light brown sugar

120g granulated sugar

1 large egg

1tsp vanilla

1tsp baking powder

1/4tsp xanthan gum (omit if your flour blend already contains this)

Pinch of sea salt

Fillings (can be adapted to your choosing) :

75g dairy free white chocolate chips

100g dairy free milk chocolate chunks

50g dried cranberries


  1. Add your dairy free butter, light brown sugar and granulated sugar to a large mixing bowl and whisk with an electric whisk until light and fluffy.
  2. Add your egg and continue to whisk. Add your vanilla extract and whisk again.
  3. Add your gluten free flour, baking powder and pinch of salt. Mix well until fully incorporated and the mix starts to look more dough like.
  4. Add your dairy free chocolate chunks, white chocolate chips and cranberries (or other fillings of your choosing) and mix well.
  5. Pop the dough in the fridge for half an hour to chill.
  6. Whilst the dough chills preheat your oven to 180°C and line 2 large baking trays with baking paper.
  7. Take your dough out of the fridge and roll into small balls. I tend to weigh mine so that they are all the same size. Place the cookie balls on your baking tray and press down a little, ensure they are spread out as they will expand!
  8. Bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown and remove from the oven. They will continue to cook a little once out of the oven. Enjoy!

Note: My cookie dough is suitable for freezing. Just freeze the dough in balls and cook from frozen for a few minutes longer than the recipe states.

I absolutely love seeing what you’ve created, so if you do make this recipe (or any other recipe from my website) don’t forget to tag me over on my social media pages @glutenfreealice and use the hashtag #glutenfreealice

  1. Hey Alice, I’d love to make these as gifts for lots of friends this weekend. How many cookies would you say this recipe can make?

    Hey! Is it caster sugar or granulated sugar? List of ingredients says granulated but description says caster.

  3. Ashley says:

    Hi! What is “plain flour” exactly? White rice? Or any other single grain flour?

    Hi Alice,
    How long do these cookies keep as I am wanting ones that will keep for a couple of weeks or so& if they don’t could you reccomend some recipes?

      Hi Dawn. Sadly they wouldn’t last a couple of weeks, probably 4-5 days at the most. You can freeze the dough though and cook it from frozen. Alice x
