Soft and Chewy Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

This soft and chewy gluten free chocolate chip cookie recipe is based on a cookie recipe that my sisters and I have been making for years. It came from an old Taste of Home  magazine from the mid 1990’s.

This cookie recipe is a little different because it contains a box of pudding mix that you add in dry. Now if you know me, you know that in general I am not a fan of boxed pudding.

In fact I have quite a few homemade pudding recipes on my main site, and if I am going to make pudding, I still prefer the homemade kind. But in this recipe adding the pudding mix to the batter gives you a really soft and chewy cookie. It changes the texture and makes it so good.

Just be sure to check the box pudding mix that you use to make sure it is gluten free.

  1. Delicious! I’ve only been experimenting with GF baking for about 2 weeks, so I can safely say that these cookies are beginner friendly as well. 🙂

  2. Have you considered any “Paleo” recipes? We have been eating completely grain-free since November (& mostly dairy-free, except eggs & butter–no milk, sour cream, yogurt, cream cheese, whipping cream, ice cream, etc. since January). We recently came across this recipe & really like them: http://fastpaleo.com/big-tims-wife-kathys-pecan-chocolate-chip-cookies/ Not quite the same as Nestle Tollhouse, but a yummy alternative for us. We use the Enjoy Life brand chocolate chips that are dairy-, nut- & soy-free. Pricey, yes, but they’re cheaper on Amazon…plus, the price automatically limits how much we’ll have so we’re not going overboard. A nice treat, for sure, and they taste just like regular chocolate chips & melt nicely as well.

  3. I am new to gluten free eating. Can I use my gluten free flour mix as a substitute? And if so how much? My kids are anxiously waiting to try this yummy looking cookie!!

    • I prefer to use the individual flours because I think they give better results. I don’t think there is a one blend for everything. But if you have a blend you like yes, you can use it in place of the flours. These cookies do have sweet rice flour in them because sweet rice flour works well in desserts, most blends do not have sweet rice flour in them, so they might not be exactly the same, but it should ok. I hope that helps.
