The Ultimate Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
Gluten-free baking is just about the trickiest thing you can do. Ok, perhaps not the trickiest, but it is up there! Without gluten, baked goods can be flat, taste chalky, and come out not quite right. You have likely found yourself in a situation where you though that cookie recipe looked amazing, just for it to come out flat, chalky, and tasteless or completely hard and crunchy.
Making the perfect soft, chewy, non-gritty, and fluffy chocolate chip cookie seemed nearly impossible until we came across this amazing gluten-free cookie recipe. It is everything you could possibly want in a cookie. You may not even know it is gluten-free and you could probably trick your gluten-loving friend into thinking this is the real deal.
If you are into soft, chewy chocolate chip cookies that are slightly golden around the edges but doughy and gooey in the middle, you have come to the right place.
The Key to These Cookies
This recipe uses browned butter to give the cookies a deep depth of flavor and great rich and slightly nutty texture. Gluten-free baking can all too often be flavorless and lack that great depth of flavor regular baked good and cookies have.
If you hate gritty gluten-free cookies and baked goods, make sure you add this tablespoon of milk the recipe calls for. The milk helps keep the cookies moist while they are baking and prevents the cookies from getting gritty or chalky in the baking process. Gluten-free flour needs that extra moisture to ensure that perfect cookie texture.
Let the Dough Rest
This may be the hardest part. You may feel inclined to get those cookies into the oven right away, but the gluten-free flour needs time to rest and rehydrate with the other ingredients. Resting the cooking dough for 30 minutes is going to make all the difference in the texture of the cookies as well. This steps also ensures doubly that your cookies are not going to coe out gritty and icky.
Now that you know ll of the tips and tricks for making the absolute best chocolate chip and gluten-free cookies, let’s get to the recipe from Meaningful Eats.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the gluten-free flour, almond flour, baking soda and salt until evenly combined. Set aside.
Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Once the butter is melted start to whisk constantly. First the butter will begin to foam, then after a couple of minutes it will begin to brown on the bottom of the saucepan. Turn off the heat as soon as the solids turn brown and the butter gives off a nutty aroma. Pour into a glass mixing bowl to prevent burning.
Add the milk, brown sugar and white sugar. Whisk to combine. Add the egg and vanilla and whisk until smooth and creamy.
Using a rubber spatula, mix in the dry ingredients until well combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Cover the bowl and let sit for 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350F. Scoop the cookie dough (about 2 Tablespoons of dough per cookie) and place a few inches apart on the baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until golden and the center is set.
Let cool 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to continue cooling. Enjoy!
And there you have it! The best and only gluten-free chocolate chip recipe you will ever need. No more making tons of recipes hoping they will come out perfectly. It is all right here for you.
