Ingredients to make Gluten Free Chocolate Cookies
- Buckwheat Flour – adds a great nutty flavour to these gluten free double chocolate cookies.
- Cacao Powder – gives a nice, rich, chocolatey flavour.
- Baking Powder – helps the cookies to rise.
- Vegan Butter – should be melted prior to using.
- Maple Syrup – is a fantastic natural sweetener.
- Vegan Chocolate – tops off these vegan double chocolate cookies.
See recipe card for full information on ingredients and quantities.
- Buckwheat Flour – other plain gluten-free flours should work great. If you don’t have a gluten-restriction, all-purpose flour will also work well.
- Cacao Powder – can be replaced with cocoa powder if needed. It has a slightly sweeter taste.
- Vegan Butter – If you aren’t vegan, regular butter will work just fine. One of my followers suggested using squashed banana in place of half of the butter and found it worked great!
- Maple Syrup – Honey or agave are great substitutes for maple syrup.
- Vegan Chocolate – is my favourite topping, but you could also mix in white chocolate chips or peanut butter chips into this double chocolate chip cookie.
- Deluxe – Consider adding another type of chip to make triple chocolate cookies. Throw some white chocolate chips or peanut butter chips in with the dough and top the choc chip cookie mix with the vegan chocolate. Voila! A triple choc chip cookie recipe!
- Kid friendly -This is a great recipe to involve the kids with. Let them add some sprinkles on top for a fun treat.

How to make Gluten Free Chocolate Cookies
Step 1: Preheat your oven to 180C. In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients and mix. Add the butter and syrup and mix again.
Step 2: Chop half of the chocolate into small chips and add to the cookie mix.
Step 3: Shape the dough into large cookies and place on a lined baking tray. Press one leftover chocolate chunk onto the top of each cookie. Bake for 12 minutes.
Step 4: Remove from the oven and allow to cool for three minutes.
Hint: The cookies will still be quite gooey when they come out. This is to be expected. They will continue cooking as they cool.
Leftover cookies will keep for 2-3 days in a sealed container. They will also freeze for a couple of months.
Pick a classic cookie, like my vegan chocolate cookies, and get ready to have some fun! For Christmas cookies, turn them into chocolate snowflake cookies and sprinkle some powdered sugar on top. At Valentine’s Day, you can make them heart-shaped. For Halloween, put some monster eye candy on top. The sky is the limit!
All it takes is a few easy swaps! If the recipe calls for butter, use vegan butter. If it calls for chocolate, use vegan chocolate and/or cacao or cocoa powder. For a milk substitute, use plant milk.
It depends on the cookie! My oat cookies don’t use flour at all! For my chocolate cookies and my peanut butter choc chip cookies, I use buckwheat flour. It gives a great nutty flavour to the cookies. Others recommend almond flour or oat flour.
They do! If you are new to the world of gluten-free eating, welcome!
