🍪 Gluten-free Chocolate Cookies Recipe 🍪
Gluten-free Chocolate Cookies
You will need:
- 1 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup gluten-free chocolate chips
- First, preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. This prevents the cookies from sticking to the sheet.
- In a medium bowl, combine 1 cup of gluten-free all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder, 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Stir these dry ingredients together until they are well mixed.
- In a separate, larger bowl, beat together 1/2 cup of softened unsalted butter and 3/4 cup of granulated sugar until the mixture is creamy. This is best done with an electric mixer, but can also be achieved with a bit of elbow grease and a sturdy whisk.
- Next, beat in one large egg and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract to your butter and sugar mixture. Continue to beat until these wet ingredients are fully incorporated.
- Gradually mix in your dry ingredients to the wet mixture, stirring well after each addition. Be sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl to ensure everything is combined.
- Stir in 1 cup of gluten-free chocolate chips. Make sure they're evenly distributed throughout the dough for chocolate in every bite.
- Drop the dough by tablespoonfuls onto your prepared baking sheet. Be sure to leave space between each cookie to allow for spreading during baking.
- Bake your cookies in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the cookies are set. They should still be soft in the middle - they will firm up as they cool.
- Finally, allow your cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. This makes them easier to remove from the sheet and helps them keep their shape.
These cookies are best enjoyed fresh, but can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week. You can also freeze the dough for later use.
