Gluten & Dairy Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

My Mom has always been the baker in the family and loved experimenting with new recipes and ingredients. So, when I was diagnosed with celiac disease and an allergy to dairy / casein, she  naturally started trying to modify our family recipes with safe products for me to enjoy.

Each time I would find gluten and dairy free products while traveling and guest speaking around the world, my first stop back from my trip would be to visit my parents with my new found foods.

We knew that we had a hit when one or more of my 11 nieces and nephews would taste my Mom’s gluten and dairy free cookies, brownies, cakes and/or muffins and say, ” this can’t be for Aunt Kim because it tastes really good, Grandma!”Gluten and dairy free cookies and expresso

One huge success is my Mom’s gluten and dairy free chocolate chip cookies. After lots of trial and error, my Mom modified and perfected the cookie recipe that had been passed down by 3 generations.

In her honor, I want to share this favorite recipe with all of you. We hope that you enjoy the smell and taste of these baked chocolate chip cookies as well as the cookie dough as much as we do.

 Mom’s Gluten and Dairy Free Chocolate Chip Cookies:

I. Cream together:

  1. 1/4 cup Earth Balance original buttery spread
  2. 1/4 cup organic shortening

II. Add sugar ingredients to cream mixture:

  1. 1 cup of white sugar
  2. 1/2 cup packed brown sugar

III. Add wet ingredients to cookie batter:

  1. 2 large eggs well beaten

IV. Sift dry ingredients, blend into batter slowly and mix thoroughly:

  1. 1 3/4 cups gluten free flour which includes xantham gum
  2. 1 teaspoon of gluten free baking soda
  3. 1 teaspoon of salt
  4. 3/4 teaspoon of gluten free baking powder

V. Add 1 package of gluten and dairy free chocolate chips to batter

V. Prepare cookies and bake:

  1. Shape dough into balls (if dough is a bit sticky to the touch add a little more gluten free flour)
  2. Roll balls in small balls and place on ungreased baking sheets
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 10-12 minutes
  4. Take cookies out of oven
  5. Let cookies cool and savor your delicious gluten & dairy free cookies

VI. Product suggestions and notes:

  1. For gluten free cookies, I baked with Meister’s gluten free all-purpose flour and Domata gluten free all-purpose flour
  2. For dairy free cookies, I baked with Earth Balance original buttery spread (I personally do not recommend using the baking sticks for this recipe) and Enjoy Life semi-sweet mini chocolate chips with great results
  3. If you can eat gluten, use 2 cups of regular flour to replace item #1 in Section IV
  4. If you can eat dairy, use 1/2 cup butter or margarine which replaces items #1 in Section I, use any type of vegetable shortening for item #2 in Section 1 and use your favorite chocolate chips for Section V
  5. Also remember you can freeze this cookie dough after you have shaped them into balls to enjoy the dough and/or baked cookies at any time

      Fernando- thanks for your message and hope you have tried to bake the chocolate chip cookies. I just made them the other day for a friend’s party and everyone loved them. Didn’t even know that they were gluten free! Enjoy!

    I just made these cookies, the only thing is that the batter came out very sticky and no dough-like at all. I kept adding more flour in the hopes of creating that texture but the cookies turned out to taste more like the flour with an aftertaste than sweet and chocolaty. Any suggestions?
