I’m so excited to share my gooey, chewy toll house inspired chocolate chip cookie recipe!! This is such an easy chocolate chip cookie recipe.
i n g r e d i e n t s :
2 1/4 cup king arthur gluten free flour mix
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks butter) – I use earth balance vegan buttery sticks
1/2 coconut sugar or granulated sugar
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon butter flavor *optional, but it’s a nice touch when not using real butter*
2 to 2 1/2 cups of chocolate chips – I use enjoy life chocolate chunks
What’s great about recipes is there’s so many opportunities for substitution here. This is my take on the classic Toll House chocolate chip cookie recipe – but dairy & gluten free & also lower on refined sugar 🙂
Some substitutions that I think would work perfect:
subbing gluten free flour mix with regular all purpose flour
subbing vegan butter for dairy butter
subbing eggs for flax eggs
subbing dairy free chocolate to any kind!
d i r e c t i o n s :
- preheat oven to 350 F.
- combine all ingredients except chocolate chips in a bowl & mix till combined (no fancy way of going about it here).
- fold in chocolate chips.
- let dough chill in the fridge for about 30 min (or until it isn’t as sticky to touch) – this ensures a nicer rise in the cookie when baking.
- line a cookie sheet with parchment paper & spoon out dough in teaspoon sized balls (keeping only an inch or so in between each should work fine).
- *optional* I recommend putting the cookie sheet in the bottom 2/3 of the oven if that makes sense – so with my oven I can move the oven racks around. I’ve found that this performs a better overall bake.
- set timer for 6ish minutes. the baking time will vary based on many factors.
the 𝑁𝑈𝑀𝐵𝐸𝑅 𝑂𝑁𝐸 physical cue to use to see if the cookies are done:
grab a fork and slide it flat under one of the cookies and try to lift the cookie up a bit with the fork. if the cookie is sturdy enough to be lifted slightly without anything transferring to the fork – they are ready – TRUST ME!
𝑑𝑜 𝑛𝑜𝑡 wait for the edges to turn a darker color – then I can almost guarantee you that you over-baked your cookies!!!
If you are unsure after taking them out of the oven if they are fully baked then don’t take them off the tray immediately. Cookies will still bake a bit when out of the oven if left on the tray – BUT after a couple minutes slide the sheet of parchment with the cookies on top off the tray regardless!
If you don’t get it perfect on the first try with this recipe don’t sweat it! I’m sure they’ll still be delicious!!
