This easy recipe for gluten free chocolate chip cookies makes the best chewy cookies! It is so simple to make homemade chocolate chip cookies without xanthum gum. 



2 cups Gluten Free Flour
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1/2 cup Unsalted Butter, at room temperature
2 large Eggs
1 Tbsp. Vanilla Extract
1 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Line three baking sheets with parchment paper.

In the bowl of your mixer blend the sugars and butter together for 3-4 minutes until they are creamed together. Add the eggs and vanilla. Blend until combined.

Add the flour, baking soda and salt to the wet mixture and blend until just combined. Add the chocolate chips and blend until they are just mixed in. 

Using a cookie scoop or tablespoon place the dough onto the baking sheets. Using the palm of your hand flatten the cookies to about half the size they are as a ball. 

Bake the cookies at 350 degrees for 11 minutes. Take the cookies out and bang the tray on your counter or edge of your stovetop. Put the cookies back in the oven and bake for another 3 minutes.

Let the cookies cool slightly before removing them from the baking sheet.


I like to reserve 1/3 cup of the chocolate chips to put on top of the cookies. This is purely for looks and you can just mix all the chips in at once.
