Bestest Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies


  • 3/4 cup butter, softened (or use Earth Balance vegan “butter” for DF version)
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cup gluten free flour blend (I used Compliments GF flour available at Safeway and Sobeys)
  • 3/4 cup baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup gluten free rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
  • 1/2 cup raw pecans, chopped
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life chocolate chips)
  • another 1/2 cup mini or chunky chocolate chips for a real boost of chocolate in the cookie. Optional


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a stand mixer beat the butter until soft.
  • Add the brown and white sugar and beat together, scraping sides of pan to incorporate all.
  • Add the 2 large eggs and mix again.
  • Scrape sides of bowl to incorporate all.
  • Add the vanilla.
  • In a small bowl whisk the gluten free flour, baking soda and salt.
  • Add dry ingredients and mix well.
  • Add the coconut and rolled oats and mix for just a minute.
  • Add the pecans and chocolate chips and mix on low.
  • I used an ice cream scoop to portion the cookie batter onto the lined cookie sheets.
  • Bake in oven for 10-12 minutes.
  • Let cool on rack.
  • Enjoy!

Firstly I am shocked I never shared this recipe. I really thought I had until I went to make chocolate chip cookies the other day and realized the recipe was not on my blog.

I apologize.

Sometimes I come up with 3 or more new recipes, take photos, remake the recipe, share the photos on social media and then go on to the next new recipe and realize I never actually shared it on my blog.

This recipe rocks – truly and can be made both with dairy and dairy free and with each version it is still amazing.

It is a soft and chewy cookie that stays soft and chewy for days.

Yes – days.

When I made this new recipe I wanted to see if it was really as good as I thought so I had brought cookies to an event I was at and asked a few gluten free folks to try them for me. Overwhelming response. They loved them.
