Gluten, Dairy and Soy-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

I did something today. Something big.
For me, anyway.
Since my gluten, dairy and soy free life began a year ago, I've been seriously mourning the loss of a good chocolate chip cookie. Seriously. This girl LOVES her chocolate chip cookies.

But that all changed today, because I did it! I finally created *the* recipe. The perfectly chewy, squishy, not-too-crunchy, doesn't-go-flat chocolate chip cookie recipe. The best part of that? I get to share it here. Consider it the Grand Opening for this new little blog of mine.

If you don't have these ingredients on hand, go and get them. Now. You'll thank me later.

You'll Need:
3/4 C. Earth Balance {Soy Free} Spread
3/4 C. Brown Sugar
1/4 C. Granulated Sugar
1 egg {or egg replacer... and yes, it works!}
2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1 C. Gluten Free Flour Blend {I use Bob's Red Mill AP Blend}
1 C. Brown Rice Flour
2 tsp. Corn Starch
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Xanthan Gum
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 C. Chocolate Chunks {Enjoy Life Chocolate Chunks are my friend!}

To Make:
Cream together the Earth Balance, Brown and Granulated Sugars
Add the egg {or replacer} and vanilla
Mix the dry ingredients in a medium bowl
Slowly incorporate the dry ingredients
Stir in the chocolate chunks
Refrigerate the dough for at least 20 minutes. Optional--but will result in fluffier, more round cookies.
Spoon onto Parchment Paper and bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes

The final step? Try not to eat them all. Seriously.


  1. My kids have no idea I changed the recipe for chocolate chip cookies on them ... sneaky sneaky ... they love them, I love them, even my hubby loves them (he is the hardest to please but tell him I told you :D) Thank you Christina for saving my sweet tooths life xoxo-angie

  2. Thank you Christina, can't wait to make these! - Sarah W.

  3. So... what would you do to make these sugar free?

  4. Hmn. That's a very good question! No easy answer at the moment either :) ...but let me do some thinking and tinkering to see what I might be able to come up with. It sounds like a fun challenge!

  5. I have a renewed sense of hope in my new "diet." These cookies are so yummy and simple to make. I used Bob Mill's Egg Replacer too and they turned out perfect. Thanks Christina!!

  6. Chocolate chip cookies are a *must,* aren't they? I was pretty darned pouty during the gap between going 'free' of everything, and creating this recipe. I NEEDED my chocolate chip cookie fix!

  7. Made these tonight with regular flour & almond butter. AMAZING!!

  8. Amazing recipe! I used 1/4 cup of applesauce instead of the egg or egg replacer. It worked great! Super chewy, soft, fluffy cookie goodness.
