Gluten Free Salted Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

by Eat


Makes 18 Cookies

Prep + cooking time: 45 mins


  • 1.5 cups blanched almond flea
  • 1 cup gluten free plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 170g dairy free spread or butter, melted
  • 1 cup loosely backed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 250g dark chocolate chips or bars broken into chunks (70% or higher and check to ensure dairy free if needed)
  • Course sea salt for sprinkling


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F or 165 degrees C. Line a baking sheet or two with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the almond meal, flour, baking soda and salt.
  3. Using an electric mixer, beat together the dairy free spread/butter, brown sugar and white sugar until combined. Mixture should be light and fluffy (this takes about 4 – 5 minutes).
  4. Add in the eggs one at a time and beat until combined. Add vanilla and beat again until mixed through. With the mixer on low speed, beat in the dry ingredients until just combined. Beat in the chocolate chips/chunks.
  5. Use a cookie scoop or tablespoon, scoop or drop 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons of dough on to the baking sheet, leaving about 2 inches between. Sprinkle each dough ball with coarse salt.
  6. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until lightly golden or to your preferred texture (some people like chewy and some people like crunchy cookies!) Let cool completely before serving.
