We had a virtual book club this week (yay, Zoom!) so, of course, we were discussing all the things not book related – like Tiger King, easy bread recipes, and Joanna Gaines’ chocolate chip cookies. My kids and I are huge Chip and Joanna fans so I knew they would want to try to recreate her chocolate chip cookies as a gluten-free version. Friends, these cookies are so good! Jump to Recipe
The boys even made a video to show you how easy it is to make these cookies. Jump to Video
These cookies are such a light color – probably because they are made with two cups of light brown sugar. Two cups! Amazing. The rest of the ingredients are relatively similar to a standard chocolate chip cookie recipe – a little more flour, no white sugar.
How To Make Joanna Gaines’ Chocolate Chip Cookie Gluten-Free
We used Cup4Cup gluten-free flour to make these gluten-free. They were so easy to make. They even looked pretty enough to photograph.
We started with 2 1/2 cups of GF flour and added 1 teaspoon baking soda and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
In a stand mixer, the boys combined 2 cups of light brown sugar with 1 stick of butter until the batter was light and fluffy. Then they added 2 eggs and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
After those ingredients were mixed together, they added the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and then added the chocolate chips.
We love to bake on a silpat liner. I think cookies cook so nicely on the liner. We baked ours for 10 to 11 minutes at 350. That’s it. So easy!
