Gluten free chocolate chip cookies made from scratch.


  • 115 grams (1/2 cup or 1 stick) unsalted butter, cold
  • 135 grams (3/4 cup) brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 egg + 1 egg yolk
  • 245 grams (1 and 3/4 cup) gluten free plain flour*
  • 35 grams (1/4 cup) cornflour or corn starch
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of salt, optional
  • 150 grams (1 cup) gluten free milk chocolate chips, plus extra to decorate


  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar using an electric beater for 1-2 minutes or until pale and creamy.
  2. Add vanilla, egg and egg yolk and beat until combined. Sift in flour, cornflour, baking soda and salt, if using, and mix to combine. Add chocolate chips.
  3. Cover with plastic wrap and chill the cookie dough for AT LEAST one hour.
  4. Preheat oven to 180 C (350 F) standard / 160 C (320 F) fan-forced. Line two baking trays with baking or parchment paper.
  5. Use a cookie scoop to roll balls of dough (approximately 1.5 tablespoons each) in your hands and place them onto your prepared trays, leaving room for the cookies to spread out.
  6. Bake for approximately 10-11 minutes or until golden brown on the edges. Press a few extra chocolate chips on top. Carefully transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.


*I tested this recipe using White Wings Gluten Free Plain Flour which is made from rice flour. Results may vary when using different brands and types of gluten free flours.
