And a quick note about chocolate chips/ chocolate chunks….

Gluten-Free Double Chocolate Chip Cookies easing baking recipe

For maximum layers of chocolate flavor, I recommend using two different types of chocolate chips but if you only have one, that’s fine! Just use one brand for the entire quantity of chips.

These are some of the brands of gluten-free chips we love ( amazon affiliate links).

Guittard chips always have a rich, creamy texture and deep chocolate flavor, and we love both their semi-sweet and extra semi-sweet which we used in these cookies. They are “free from” peanuts, tree nuts and gluten.

Enjoy Life chips are always in our pantry. They are free from 14 allergens and we love all their chips. For these cookies we have used there dark chocolate chips and mega chunks.

Nestle Toll House is a classic and I happen to love their dark chocolate chips for pressing on top of these cookies. They are a bit larger than the other chips, melt well and have great flavor. They are labeled gluten-free. (not relevant to this recipe but celiac friends, while most the the Nestle Toll House chips are gluten-free, the Butterscotch Chips are not gluten-free…)

Back to the Gluten-Free Double Chocolate Chip Cookies…

The batter comes together in 10 minutes and 4 easy steps:

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the gluten-free flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. You might be tempted to skip this step but it is an important one in gluten-free baking. Not only does it combine the ingredients but makes the flour and cocoa powder finer. And this finer mix of dry ingredients helps give the great texture of the baked cookie.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the wet ingredients: First cream the butter and sugars (two types gives best mix of crispness and chewiness). Then add in the egg. Then vanilla.
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.
  4. Mix in a portion of the chocolate chips.

Next up, chill the batter for just 10 minutes! You want to roll the batter into balls and just the 10 minutes in the fridge makes a huge difference!

Bake only about 8 cookies per baking sheet as they will spread.

And just before the are done, take them out of the oven (they will be a bit puffed up) and press in the additional chocolate chips or chocolate chunks, gently pressing down the cookie so that it cracks a bit.

Bake two more minutes, then top with flaky sea salt  — the best finishing touch!

Let sit for about 15 minute to set, then enjoy!

They are just crisp on the edges, soft & chewy in the middle and SO CHOCOLATY!

There are lots of melty chips! And the salt accentuates the chocolate flavor.

They are for chocolate lovers everywhere and are perfect for any occasion!

Hope you love them!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup + 1 tablespoon gluten-free all purpose flour we use GFJules – affiliate link
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • cup + 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder we used Hershey's cocoa amazon affiliate link
  • ½ cup salted butter, room temperature
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips* these get mixed in batter
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips or chocolate chunks* these get pressed on top
  • large flaky sea salt for sprinkling on cookies we use Maldon salt (amazon affiliate link)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a small bowl combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt and combine well with a whisk or pastry cutter. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, use a stand or hand mixer to cream butter and sugars until well combined (and creamy!).
  • Add egg and mix to combine. Then add vanilla and mix to combine.
  • Add flour mix to the wet ingredients and mix to combine. (do not over mix)
  • Add 1 cup chocolate chips and mix to just combine. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let the batter chill 10 minutes in the refrigerator. (It doesn't need long -- you're just making the batter a bit firmer to easily roll into balls)
  • Roll into 16 balls and place on 2 baking sheets about 2 inches apart. (I make 8 cookies per baking sheet)
  • Bake 8 minutes. Take out of the oven and quickly press dark chocolate chips into cookies, flattening them with your hand in the process.(be careful the pan will be hot!) Bake additional 2 minutes and take out of the oven. Edges will be set and just starting to get crisp, center may not look done. It will continue to set and bake on the baking sheet while it cools. Sprinkle with flaky sea salt while still hot.
  • Let sit on the baking tray for 15 minutes (this is important for them to set), then remove them to a baking tray to let cool completely. Enjoy!
  • Store in an air tight container at room temperature for 3 days. Or Freeze for up to 3 months.
