Gooey Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

This classic cookie is easy, delicious and fudgy. Easy to whip up for a last minute dessert or to make with your kids.

Honestly I’m not sure why we haven’t shared this classic cookie on the blog yet. Well, good news because here it is (finally!!). After a while I ended up getting chocolate chunks. I never have chunks on hand. They are so much better, amiright??

I don’t know why they are better.

They just are.  Anyway, on with the recipe. Your lucky because I have step by step photos!

We are going to start by melting a bit of butter. Now, I hate waiting around for butter to soften, so I just put that butter in the microwave for about 35 seconds. Yes, this recipe uses melted butter!

Next were here going to mix in some brown sugar, white sugar, an egg and some vanilla. The real vanilla guys, the fake stuff tastes like… Artificial  sugar/syrup/partially vanilla but not. We use Rodelle. It tastes amazing. And I mean AMAZING. Like, I could drink it.

Now the great thing about this is that you don’t need to mix the dry ingredients together in a different bowl. ONE BOWL, guys. I hate using another bowl to mix in the dry ingredients.

We’re going to add some gluten free flour and baking powder. I use Cup4Cup gluten free flour, but you can use normal all purpose. I mixed this with a spatula and I think I gained some arm muscle from that.

It’s going to be nice and thick. Now you can add whatever you want: chocolate chips or chunks, nuts, M&M’s, chopped up Reese’s. I just used chocolate chips AND chunks.

Then we are going to roll the dough into 12 balls and put on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. I obviously don’t own one of those cool cookie scoops, so I just gathered a ball of dough in my hands and made it circle. But if you do own a cookie scoop, please use that. The cookies don’t spread too much, so feel free to press the balls down if you like flat cookies.

Bake them at 375 for about 13 minutes. Indulge while they are still warm with a glass of almond milk. Perfection.

Enjoy! And I will be posting more chocolate recipes like this in the next few months!
