What makes these chewy chocolate chip cookies gluten-free and dairy-free?

This recipe for chewy chocolate chip cookies is gluten-free and dairy-free because it uses alternative ingredients to traditional flour and butter. Instead of wheat flour, this recipe uses Bob’s Red Mill 1:1 Gluten-Free Baking Flour to create a gluten-free base. And instead of regular butter, it calls for any plant-based butter which is dairy-free by nature.

In addition, the recipe uses other gluten-free and dairy-free ingredients, such as dairy-free chocolate chips. By using these alternative ingredients, the recipe is able to create a delicious, chewy chocolate chip cookie that is safe for people with gluten and dairy intolerances or allergies to enjoy.

Do I have to let the batter chill in the fridge?

As someone who wants cookies the second I start making the dough, this step tests my patience too, and it feels tedious. However, I swear by letting the dough chill for 2 hours because not only does it allow the dry ingredients absorb the wet ingredients creating a more structurally sound cookie but it also allows for a toffee-like flavor to develop as well!

  • Large Bowl
  • Medium Bowl
  • Whisk or electric mixer
  • Large baking sheet
  • ¼ Cup Cookie scoop optional
  • Parchment Paper
  • Plastic Wrap
  • Oven
  • Cooling Rack



  • In a medium bowl, mix together flour and baking powder until the baking powder is evenly distributed and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine white and brown sugar, softened vegan butter, vanilla extract and salt. Whisk together until butter and sugar become light and fluffy. Then, mix in the egg until combined.
  • Add 1/2 of the flour mixture to the large bowl and mix until combined. Then repeat with remaining flour.
  • Fold in chocolate chips. (Use as much or as little as you'd like!)
  • Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for two hours.
  • After chilling for 1 hour and 50 minutes, preheat oven to 375°F.
  • After chilling for the full 2 hours, remove dough from refrigerator and scoop slightly less than ¼ cup dough onto parchment lined baking sheet. Limit to 6 scoops of dough on the baking sheet (we want to leave room for these cookies to spread).
  • Bake at 375°F for 9-10 minutes or until edges are golden brown and the cookies are cooked through to your liking. Top with sea salt immediately after baking (optional), and let cool on the baking sheet (these cookies are very fragile while hot!).
  • Replace parchment paper on the baking sheet with a new sheet, scoop the remaining dough into 6 scoops onto baking sheet and repeat the previous two steps!
  • Enjoy!


For best results, use the flour blend mentioned in the ingredients! And make sure not to skimp on chilling the cookie dough!
