Our gluten-free version of this classic, replacing wheat flour with coconut flour, will please everyone in the family, especially those with a wheat allergy. These super-dark cookies have a cake-like texture and intense chocolate flavor.
Ingredients: 
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon gluten-free vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Method: 
Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.

In a medium bowl, use an electric mixer to cream butter with sugar until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. 

Sift together cocoa and flour into a second bowl, then add to butter-sugar mixture and beat until combined. Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts (if using), then set aside to let batter rest for 5 minutes. (Coconut flour will absorb the liquid and thicken as it sits.) 

Drop the cookie dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet, leaving 2 inches between cookies. Bake until cookies are slightly set in the center., 13 to 15 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling.
