gluten free chocolate chip & nut cookies that are flourless

This flourless recipe, for gluten free chocolate chip & nut cookies, is from Angela Liddon’s Oh She Glows cookbook. As the original recipe is gluten free very little adjustments were made.

Favourite Takeaways:

  1. Made without flour
  2. Essentially made in 1 bowl
  3. Dairy free and/or vegan option

I find myself baking a batch of these gluten free chocolate chip & nut cookies every so often. I love the nutty cookie base paired with a touch of chocolate. They also keep very well in the freezer!

alteration notes:

  • Used peanut butter
  • Used brown sugar
  • Used coconut sugar

approximate times:

  • Prep: 20 minutes
  • Bake: 10-12 minutes

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Line 2-3 cookie sheets with parchment paper
  3. In a small bowl, mix the flaxseed with 3 Tbsp of water – set aside for about 5 minutes to thicken
  4. In a large bowl (or stand mixer with paddle attachment) add coconut oil and peanut butter – beat until combined
  5. Add in both sugars – beat for another minute
  6. Add in flaxseed (or egg) and vanilla – beat until combined
  7. Add baking soda, baking powder, salt, oat flour, almond meal – beat in each ingredient at a time until combined
  8. Fold in chocolate chips
  9. Drop the dough (about 1-inch balls) roughly 2.5 inches apart on a cookie sheet
  10. Bake 1 sheet at a time for 10-12 mins, – should be a light/medium golden brown
  11. Cool slightly (1-2 mins) before transferring onto a cooling rack

further insights:

  • serves about 1-2 dozen smaller cookies
  • if dough is dry, add a touch of almond milk
  • cookies will spread out while baking
  • used a small cookie scoop and slightly pressed down on dough with mini spatula
  • can be made ahead and stored in airtight container – about 2 days prior
  • freezes well in airtight container
