Double Chocolate Gluten Free Cookies!

Soft & Double Chocolatey Gluten Free Cookies that are perfect for a treat – best of all, you won’t even realise they are Gluten Free!


I have created many a cookie recipe, many chocolate recipes, and just… loads of recipes – however, only two Gluten Free recipes! This I felt was unfair, so I created these beauties! (However, it is again, chocolatey…my bad!)

This is genuinely one of my favourite cookie recipes, even though its gluten free. They are the perfect texture for me to be chocolatey & gooey, but the perfect cakeyness! I have experimented with other Gluten Free Cookie Recipes in the past, and I will probably be posting another one soon using Almonds for example, but with this one I wanted to demonstrate that Gluten Free Flour is definitely a good thing!

Obviously however, textures and such are different when there is no Gluten in a recipe – some it doesn’t matter at all, but sometimes it can make a different with things such as Cookies. I don’t mind the difference, such as how these are slightly more cakey – but thats perfectly delicious to me! 🙂 If you are Gluten Free I’m sure you already know this, but just double check that your Baking Powder and such are also Gluten Free as some apparently are not!

I love these, so I know you will too! And if you are GF, I hope you approve!! 🙂 I mean come on, just how chocolatey and yum do they look! Heaven!


This recipe makes 15 Cookies! 


– 100g Unsalted Butter
– 200g Light Brown Sugar
– 2 Medium Eggs, beaten
– 250g Gluten Free Plain Flour
– 35g Cocoa Powder
– 1tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
– 1tsp Baking Powder
– 200g Chocolate Chips (I used White ones!)



1) Preheat your oven to 180C/170CFan and line 2-3 Baking Trays with Parchment paper!

2) Cream together your Butter and Sugar until light and fluffy (I use an electric stand mixer with the paddle attachment to make this all easier) Once the Butter/Sugar Mix is combined, start gradually adding the egg to the mix whilst still beating, continue till all is incorporated.

3) Sift in the Flour, Cocoa Powder, Bicarbonate, and Baking Powder in to mixture and beat again – should make a nice dark but smooth cookie dough!

4) Mix in the Chocolate Chips and then spoon onto the Baking Trays either using a tablespoon, or a cookie scoop! (I do 6 per tray so they don’t spread and touch) and Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes until cooked through! They should rise slightly when baking!

5) Leave to cool on a wire rack and then devour them all yourself. No sharing allowed!


Tips and Ideas

You can obviously use the same recipe to make normal cookies, but I like these as the Gluten Free ones! 🙂 Gluten Free Plain Flour can be found in most stores, sometimes not in the baking isle but in the ‘Free From’ section!

These will last in an airtight container for 4-5 days if they last that long!

    Hi Jane!
    Can I make these plain by taking out the cocoa powder? Would I need to add more flour to do this

      I haven’t tried this myself, but I don’t see why not! I would replace with the same weight of more flour!

    I have drawn my recently GF colleague in the work secret santa and she is struggling to adjust to life without most cakes/biscuits etc so want to make a selection of delicious treats for her – in case she wants to make them last until the new year would these be suitable for freezing?

    Hi Jane, I make alot of your recipes but never actually baked cookies before so going to try these as my partner is gluten free and moans when I make stuff he can’t eat 😂 he loved your gf chocolate cake! Wouldn’t even let me have any… But anyways when you bake these what’s the best way to tell when they’re cooked? Just because I’ve never done any cookies before

      Just stick with the timings – they’ll be cooked! All cookies are a little soft when they come out, but they’re firm up soon enough!

      I’ve never tested it as I was asked to do one with GF flour, I’m developing one using different flours though!

    Hi Jane, This recipe looks super yummy and I’m excited to try it. My only question is about your flour. There are SO many kinds of gluten free flour, that I’m curious which one you have found so much success with for your cookie textures. I’ve tried dozens of different flours and they all bring such different flavors and textures; coconut flour; rice flour; potato flour; tapioca flour; almond flour; quinoa flour etc. And often times a gluten-free flour is some very specific combination of these. All that to say, if you found a magic combo, I would LOVE to know what’s in it! Thank you for all the tips and such a yummy cookie idea 🙂

    Between Jane, I also mailed you few days back, did you checked that, can you help?

      The Gluten Free flour is just sold as “Gluten Free Plain Flour” in my shop so I’m not sure what its made up of entirely I’m afraid! 🙂 and I haven’t been able to check my emails yet sorry.

    I’ll have to make these for my dad! He’d be delighted at a cookie good enough to eat. I’m surprised to learn they keep so well but I’m willing to try!

      Oh well I hope approves, he might not! And yes this is what my GF friend has said she has done (as I gave her these cookies) which is what I went by, but some people think stuff lasts longer then others so! 🙂

    My grandmother is gluten free and I am sure she will appreciate this recipe. We have been trying to find a good gluten free chocolate cookie recipe for a while now.

    Yum these look so good! I’m supposed to reduce the gluten I eat because my tummy isn’t a fan, but baking is always my downfall. Definitely trying these thanks Jane 🙂 xxx

      Ohh I think we are more similar by the day! Ive always been asked to cut out gluten & dairy alternatively to see which is worse for my body but then cake & chocolate happens and I give up 😛 These are tasty though haha so I hope you like them!! 🙂 xx

      It’s spooky haha! I’ve struggled with my tummy from various things the last few years, but this year the doctor decided gluten was the current culprit. But I love traditional baking too much to cut it out completely, pasta I can ditch no problem but cakes and biscuits? Not so easy! I’m sure I’ll love them excited to bake them now! 🙂 xx

      Ohhh haha thats not good! The world used to have it so easy, never used to be any allergies or intolerances in comparison to these days! But I agree, cake and biscuits are just so good! Thank you! 🙂 xx
