If you’re reading this post, I’m going to have to assume you LOVE chocolate chip cookies. And I mean, who doesn’t, really? But you’re probably looking at this and going “Why in the world is she sharing 50 different gluten-free dairy-free chocolate chip cookie recipes – aren’t they all practically the same?!” And the short answer is very clearly “no.”
Believe it or not, when I started looking for my next recipe roundup post, chocolate chip cookies came to the forefront of my mind seriously, every time I’m looking around on Google or Pinterest for new recipes, I come across someone else’s variation on this cookie. Truth be told, the fact that there even ARE 50 different gluten-free AND dairy-free variations on this very classic recipe kind of blows my mind.. I sourced over 100 actually, but decided I didn’t want to overwhelm anyone so I cut it down by half (you’re welcome!).
But when you consider the number of different routes you can go to substitute out the normal all-purpose flour – like with gluten-free all purpose flour, a blend of specific gluten-free flours, swapping for oat, coconut, or almond flour – it kind of makes sense.
Add on top of that how you can swap out butter in a recipe with coconut oil, vegan butter, or even get a little crazy and swap out for almond or peanut butter, applesauce, banana or pumpkin puree or even shredded zucchini there are probably thousands of different possibilities on ways you could take this very classic, very standard cookie recipe.
To be sure you’re prepped and ready for some excellent chocolate chip cookie baking, here are my top 10 recommended ingredients for baking up a batch of gluten-free dairy-free chocolate chip cookies any day of the week:
