You'll never know that these cookies are gluten-free! A delicious and easy recipe for gluten-free chocolate chip cookies made with a gluten-free baking mix, coconut oil, brown sugar, egg, vanilla, and chopped walnuts.
I had to label these cookies "awesome" because they are the best tasting gluten-free cookie that I have ever eaten! My kids gobbled them up and asked for more. I have several different recipes for healthier chocolate chip cookies, so you can see the obsession here.
The Secret To Tasty Gluten-Free Cookies
The secret to the awesomeness is Pamela's Ultimate Baking & Pancake Mix (not sponsored I just love it). I also tried out Pamela's pancake recipe. They were also really, really good. The texture was right for a pancake. If you have tried a lot of gluten-free products, then you know what I'm talking about. Some of the premade mixes leave a lot to be desired as far as texture goes.
These gluten-free cookies taste like a regular chocolate chip cookie. My family couldn't tell the difference, including the kiddos.
I can't wait to try more of Pamela's creations (and no, I'm not getting paid to say that), I love this product! On a gluten-free diet, these gluten-free chocolate chip cookies are a heavenly treat!!

These look great. Our son is trying to stick with GF...always good to get a recommendation. Sending this to my dil now...thanks -
Thank you ladies! I don't always eat GF, but we have been experimenting with it. I like the way that I feel when I eliminate wheat from my diet. I seem to have more energy. 🙂
2 of my favorite recipes....Pamela's chocolate chip walnut cookies and pancakes. They are both unbeatable!
Katie, her products are amazing!!! I don't miss gluten with Pamela's. 🙂
Oh, these look good. Every chocolate chip GF recipe I try, the cookies spread and go flat. I agree, Pamela's pancakes are awesome, so this should work. (I make the waffle version every Sunday!)
Thank you Dawn! Pamela's waffles are amazing, too! 🙂
Oh WOW!! These cookies were absolutely fantastic!! So easy to make and so delicious!!! I altered them a little. I replaced the sugar with coconut crystals which has a lower glycemic index added a little salt. I also made a separate batch and added a little molasses. Thank you for this wonderful recipe!!
Awe, thank you Tonya!! So glad that you enjoyed them!! Your subs sound fantastic, I'll try that too! 🙂
cookie recipe looks great but it seems to be missing some liquid. I just tried this and the cookies fall apart and are really dry. can you let me know what else to add??
Did you use the Pamela's baking mix and coconut oil? These have always held together and turned out great for me, but using specified ingredients does make a difference.
Fantastic! I plan to use 50% brown sugar and 50% white sugar and chill before baking so they are slightly chewier+crispier. But the level of sweeteness and taste was great!
Sounds great to me! So glad that you enjoyed them Ina!
