Before we get into the recipes, let’s go over some questions I’ve received quite a bit regarding making cookies gluten and dairy-free. Let’s take the guesswork out of making cookies that are gluten and dairy-free.
Is there dairy in cookies?
Any product, including butter, that is made from cow’s milk is considered dairy. There is dairy in most cookies you’ll find at the grocery store or most homemade recipes in the form of butter, so yes, most cookies contain dairy.
In this post, I’ll aim to show you how many different ways you can make cookies dairy-free by using coconut oil, vegan butter, or other dairy alternatives to butter and dairy ingredients.
What kind of cookies are gluten-free?
You can make just about any type of cookie into a gluten-free cookie by substituting traditional all-purpose flour for gluten-free flour.
There are few types of cookies that are naturally gluten-free and need no replacement of flour, such as macaroons (coconut cookies), macaron shells (doesn’t include buttercream inside), flourless cookies (like those made of peanut butter, eggs, and sugar), no bake cookies (made using oats), and I’m sure many more.
Are chocolate chips gluten and dairy free?
Most chocolate chips are gluten-free, but not dairy-free. Many chocolate chips contain dairy from the milk in the ingredient list.

Do gluten-free cookies taste different than those made with traditional flour?
This is a great question and the answer varies from recipe to recipe. Depending on the type of gluten-free flour used, a gluten-free cookie could taste the exact same as a cookie made with all-purpose flour. It could also alter the taste and texture slightly.
Many gluten-free recipes often have a reputation for being crumbly or not holding together well. This is due to the lack of gluten, the protein that acts as glue to hold the ingredients together. Even if the texture is different, most cookies will still taste delicious with a gluten-free flour.
