Finally A Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie

by zesty on February 23, 2011 · 12 comments

The finally portion of this post title is for me. I have been telling myself what feels like years that I am going to make a gluten free cookie to share with you and my family. Finally the time has come where I did it and I was totally surprised by the results. Not that I thought they would taste terrible but I was not expecting that they would be this yummy.

To put it in perspective, they lasted 3 hours and 15 minutes. zesty juniors, Mrs zesty and a couple of zesty in laws popped over after the cookies made their way out of the oven and every one gave the thumbs up. I had to improvise slightly with the recipe as I found it was

a little dry prior to adding the chips. That is when I went with the yogurt addition. As I said earlier, the results were very positive.

When I took them out of the oven I was a bit skeptical. They were very delicate and I thought maybe I made them too thin. Zesty junior was the first tester and my biggest critic. His face said it all and as he placed the cookie on the counter and immediately placed “two” thumbs up – I knew we had a winner.

I am not gloating by any stretch but I seriously suggest to try these cookies. For the recipe, I had put a number of recipes together based on the ingredients I had on hand. In the end I used this recipe as a guide and modified a few ingredients based on taste and added in the yogurt.


  • 1/2 Cup butter (softened)
  • 11/4 Cup rice flour
  • 1/2 Cup white sugar
  • 1/2 Cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. Plain Yogurt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 Tsp. Baking soda
  • 1/2 Tsp. Baking powder
  • 1 Bag chocolate chips


  1. In a bowl beat butter,flour, sugars, egg, baking soda and powder with an electric mixer until well blended.
  2. Add yogurt and mix until thoroughly combined.
  3. Add in chocolate chips and mix with a fork.
  4. Drop onto an ungreased cookie sheet ( makes about 24 normal size cookies – I made 16 ) I also flattened them down a little so they would be thin and chewy.
  5. Bake at 375 for 6-8 minutes or until lightly browned.
  6. ENJOY!

Zesty Tip: I added sliced almonds to the second batch and made them slightly larger. They puffed up slightly higher but still had the soft texture. The almonds added a nice crunch and texture. In the future, if no one was looking I would add the almonds every time.

Have a super Wednesday! I cannot believe the week is half over already. Stay tuned on Friday as I announce the final arrangements for the Disney World trip and a very special thanks to a fellow blogger. Talk to you on Friday.

Take care

These look great. Personally, I love a really good plump chewy cookie. But if they’re soft and have chocolate I’ll eat it :)

Honestly though I don’t see why people think a GF cookie or baked good isn’t going to be any good (or that it’s healthier)….add butter and sugar in there and you can’t really go wrong in richness ;)

I always thought I would have needed xanthan gum to make a gluten free cookie. Now that I see it is possible without xanthan gum, this is a recipe worth trying. Thanks for posting.

My batter seemed perfect, but once I added the yogurt, it got too wet, too puffy, and too sticky and no longer pulled away from the bowl.

I did one test cookie, and sure enough, I got a pancake!

So, to fix it, I added some sweet rice flour (glutinous rice flour) (no gluten in that, just a bad name) and some tapioca starch since there isn’t any xantham gum in the recipe. I guess you could also just add more rice flour.

Lex – After you altered them did you have success?
