Best gluten free cookies recipe

Here I’ll go through how to make gluten free and dairy free cookies. 

To make the easy vegan gluten free cookies, start by creaming together the soft brown sugar, caster sugar, tahini and melted dairy free butter for 5 mins. It should begin to slightly thicken in it’s consistency.

You then want to go in and add the molasses and water. {you can read more on these ingredients below to know why each are necessary for this easy dairy free cookie dough}

Once combined add the gluten free flourxanthan gum and chopped vegan chocolate, until combined – DON’T over mix.

Refrigerate the gluten free cookie dough for at least 1/2hr or preferably overnight. This will allow the dough to enhance its flavors and stiffen and set making it easier to roll and spread more evenly in the oven.

Roll into medium sized balls, placing 4/5 on a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper (as they spread) and bake for 10-12 mins. When done these gluten free cookies should be golden brown and slightly soft – it will gain its shape when cooled.

What ingredients are in cookies

eggless chocolate chip cookies ingredients

Doves gluten free plain flour – You can use any other brand, I just like the ratio of xanthan gum it already includes in its mix.

Xanthan gum – To add extra stability 

As these are gluten free cookies the xanthan gum, prevents it from becoming crumbly as it adds stability and shape, just like eggs to traditional cookies.

If you’re flour doesn’t have Xanthan Gum in it already then add 2tsp Xanthan Gum to the dough separately.

Caster sugar – For sweetness. Caster sugar is a very fine form of sugar, I don’t like to use granulated sugar in my cookies as I find the sugar granules are too large and can change the consistency and texture of the cookies.

Vegan butter – This works nearly identically to normal butter to add the butter texture and crispness to your cookies. And you can find vegan butter in nearly every grocery store now!

Water – Extra moisture to help it spread when baking

Molasses – Now don’t let this ingredient put you off from making these cookies. Many people dislike the taste of molasses, myself included when it’s not paired with anything. However when molasses is baked into something, that strong flavour is lost and instead adds a beautiful golden colour to your bakes. And specifically for these cookies, it helps to create that chewy texture.

Dairy free chocolate – This is quite vital when making ‘chocolate chip cookies’ they add extra texture and flavor to the cookies.

Tahini – The thickness of the tahini is like a binding agent to these cookies, it helps to hold all the ingredients together and like the dairy free butter it helps to evenly spread the cookies out when baking. 

Side note, as we are adding very little tahini the flavor hardly comes through but if your still not a fan you can substitute it for another nut butter.

How to make vegan tahini cookies:

But we’re only using 1 tbsp for these cookies so the flavor isn’t too pungent. Instead it brings a rich depth of flavor to the cookies as well as added moisture making the cookies slightly chewy.

How long does it take to bake vegan gluten free cookies?

Well the beauty about these cookies is you can alter how gooey and chewy you want these cookies to be, depending on how long you bake them. If you choose to bake these for 8 mins you’ll produce a super soft and melty cookie. Bake it for a further 5 mins- which i think is perfect you’ll get a soft, slightly chewy cookie that holds its shape. 

But I’m afraid if you bake it any longer than 15mins you’ll over bake this and then they’ll just be crunchy. If that’s your thing, go for it. But if I were to keep an eye on that oven and bake it for 8-13mins and they’ll turn out perfect.

But like always, make sure to preheat the oven or else they’ll take even longer to bake, and the cookies may not spread as they should, due to the low temperature of the oven.

What equipment do you need to make vegan cookies?

Well it’s quite simple actually, you essentially need just a whisk, bowl, baking tray and scale.

For this recipe I whipped out my stand mixer, but an electric or hand held whisk works brilliantly too – you may just need to whisk for a few minutes longer.

  1. These cookies look amazing!! My daughter has a dairy intolerance and I can’t wait to make these for her. I appreciate how you explain why each ingredient works, as I am not super familiar with some of them.

  2. 5 stars
    I’ve been gluten-free for years, so I love finding new GF recipes! Also, tahini?! YUM! One of my favorite ingredients. I’ll try this for sure. Thank you!

    1. Yes, it’s pretty incredible you can’t taste the tahini in the cookies they just add a light nuttiness to the cookies and help create the traditional chewy cookie texture!

    1. It’s not necessary no, but I do like to add 1/4 tsp more for extra stability depending on how much Xanthan Gum is already in the flour.
