  • Total Time: 26 min
  • Yield: 12 1x



1 cup gluten free all-purpose flour* (I use “Better Batter”)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
5 tbs vegan butter melted (I use “Earth Balance soy free buttery sticks”)
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup coconut sugar, packed (or brown sugar)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbs water
1 cup vegan chocolate chips* (I use “Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate or Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips”)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the melted butter, maple syrup, coconut sugar, vanilla, and water until smooth.
  4. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients and whisk until well blended.
  5. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  6. Scoop the dough onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
  7. Bake for 14-16 minutes or until the cookies are lightly browned.
  8. Let cool completely before serving.


As you probably already know, not all gluten free flours are created equal. I usually use Better Batter when I am baking and have great luck. Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 is another brand of all-purpose gluten free flour that I trust, but I have not tried this recipe with that brand yet.
