The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
This recipe is only for those people who want their cookies to stay cookies. I am all for eating healthy. We strive for intuitive and balanced eating in our house. Which means- not making absolutely everything healthy. You can find a lot of healthy recipes and healthy versions of this and that on this blog. But chocolate chip cookies are sacred. They need to stay piles of cookie dough and chocolate chips to stuff our faces with while drinking our morning coffee before our kids find us in the morning.
So let's make some classic gluten and dairy free chocolate chip cookies!
Which gluten free flour is best for cookies?
My all time favorite gluten free flour for cookies (or baking in general) is Bob's Red Mill 1-1 Ratio Gluten Free Flour. This is my own opinion, not paid or sponsored at all. I truly love their products in general but we always have at least 2 bags of this flour in our house.
I always like to do a combination of this gluten free flour and some almond flour. I have found that this really helps to lighten it up (gluten free baking can be dense) and give it a nice texture as well.
Which chocolate chips are gluten free AND dairy free?
Most Nestle chocolate chips say gluten free on them and are gluten free. The trick is which are also dairy free. Obviously milk chocolate isn't going to work out for truly dairy free chocolate chip cookies.
I have seen big bags of vegan chocolate chips at Costco so you can always look there. But if you want to just order some right your house so you don't even have to go outside- these (linked) Lily's dark chocolate chips are what we buy.
What can replace butter in cookies?
Coconut Oil is the best butter replacement. If you don't want any kind of coconut flavor in your cookies, no problem. Get the refined coconut oil (or triple refined) and you won't taste anything but a perfect dairy free chocolate chip cookie. They sell this at Target, Walmart or of course Amazon.
When measuring out your coconut oil, simple spoon it into your measuring cup. Make sure to press it down and give it a few pokes to get rid of any trapped air bubbles that may happen. Easy and simple and much easier (and cheaper) than trying to find a good vegan butter in my opinion.
How to make dairy free Chocolate Chip Cookies
In a medium bowl, mix together your gluten free flour, almond flour, baking soda, and salt. Whisk it together thoroughly to get any clumps out. In a separate large bowl, cream together your coconut oil, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla with beaters until smooth. Slowly add the flour mixture into the creamed sugar mixture and form a soft cookie dough. Add in your chocolate chips and fold all together.
Using a cookie scooper or a spoon, scoop tablespoon sized scoops onto a baking sheet about an inch apart. Bake at 375 for about 9 minutes until the edges are golden brown. Let them cool and set before eating (or don't, we don't judge), and enjoy!
