Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies Photo: Jordanna Levin

Just because you are gluten intolerant doesn't mean that you have to miss out on the joy that is eating a chocolate chip cookie.


  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups buckwheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 125g unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup rice malt syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 100g 85% dark chocolate, coarsely chopped


Preheat oven to 160°C. Line two baking sheets with baking paper.

Combine flour, baking powder, vanilla powder and salt in a large bowl.

In a separate bowl beat butter and rice malt syrup until creamy. Add egg and beat until combined.

Add butter mixture to dry ingredients and combine with a wooden spoon. Fold through chocolate.

Spoon tablespoonfuls of the mixture into balls and place on the lined trays. Press down slightly.

Bake for 15-20 minutes until lightly golden. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Store in an airtight container.

If you really wanted to take it a step further you could replace the dark chocolate with cacao nibs which would reduce the sugar more.
