How To Make Joanna Gaines’ Chocolate Chip Cookies Gluten-Free {Video}

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

Chocolate Chip Cookies – So Good! Gluten-free.

The boys even made a video to show you how easy it is to make these cookies. Jump to Video

The boys! Amazing bakers!

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!

    1. Hi! There are a few different GF flours I use and they all have xantham gum in them. I love King Arthur GF Flour and Cup4Cup – possibly because those are the easiest for me to get my hands on!

  1. Yummy! So so good! And don’t taste like cardboard like some gf recipes. BTW we use King Arthur gf flour. And it works well in our recipes.
