Chocolate Chip Cookies – wheat free recipe

We have been working with recipes for a while now, trying to find combinations that work well when you take wheat, corn and soy out of the equation. Not as easy as I would like but At Home Dad has found some tricks and I have adapted those to recipes. One of our favorite things to make is chocolate chip cookies. These are soft, chewy, filling cookies with less sugar and no wheat. YUM!

I started with a traditional chocolate chip cookie recipe. There is one in the Everyday Cooking book that I reviewed last year and it is almost exactly like the recipe I grew up making. We have adapted that to a recipe with less sugar and no wheat. Here you go:

Wheat free chocolate chip cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies (wheat free)


1 1/2 C almond flour
1/2 C coconut flour
1/2 C garbanzo flour
1 1/2 t xantham gum
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1 C butter, softened
1/3-1/2 C sugar
1/3-1/2 C brown sugar
1 t vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 C chocolate chips
1/2 – 1 C chopped nuts (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 375° F and cover your baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl, stir together the flours and the xantham gum.
  • In a large mixer bowl, cream the butter, sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla. (Add the sugar to taste – I like it less sweet. You could add up to 3/4 C of each type of sugar, as my mom’s original recipe had.)
  • Add the eggs and mix well.
  • Add baking soda and salt; mix well.
  • Gradually add the flour mixture.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips and nuts, if using.
  • Note: This mixture will be sticky. It is much stickier than a dough made using wheat flour.
  • Using a cookie scoop, a melon baller, or a spoon, scoop out balls of dough that are about 1 inch. Place these about 1 1/2 inches apart on the parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  • Bake for 12 minutes, until brown on the top. Let sit on sheet for about five more minutes to firm up a bit before moving them to cooling racks.

Makes about 5 dozen cookies.

I sure do enjoy having these cookies around. They are a yummy, chewy chocolate chip cookie that really satisfies. If you make this recipe, I would love feedback.

At Home.

      Good luck finding them. We can find them at our grocery store, though that isn’t really the best priced place to buy them. We buy our almond flour at a whole-sale club (SAMS) and the others at a drug store/whole foods place.
