The Best Chocolate Cookies! (DF/GF)

Hello Everyone,

I really wanted to make some big, chocolate cookies that were DF/GF and this is what i came up with!

These can come up pretty dry, thats why I recommend adding in as much milk as you think you need. I’ve written half a cup of milk, but you may need more!

Hope you enjoy them, let me know if you’ve made them!

Love B x

Makes 11 regular size cookies, or 8 large ones

You will need:

  • 200g of butter (or a substitute, such as olive oil based)
  • 1/2 cup of caster sugar (can always add in 1 cup if you want it really sweet)
  • 2 Tablespoons of maple/golden syrup
  • 1 egg (or chia alternative)
  • Vanilla Extract
  • 275g of self raising GF flour (or regular)
  • 60-75g of cocoa powder (really chocolatey go for 75)
  • 1/2 cup milk of your choice
  • Large bar of the chocolate of your choice (Dairy free, or regular); I like using white, milk, and dark chocolate for the variation 🙂

Let’s go…..

  1. Start by preheating your oven to 200 c
  2. Cream your butter, sugar, and maple syrup in a big bowl

  3. Add in your egg, and stir until well blended
  4. Add 1 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
  5. Stir in the sifted flour and cocoa, and mix until well combined (sometimes easier to mix with your hands!)

  6. Add 1/2 cup of milk, 1 tablespoon at a time until you get your desired consistency
  7. Add all of your chosen chocolate to the cookie mix, and mix until all chocolate is dispersed evenly (I used 70% dark cocoa chocolate)

  8. Line two baking sheets, and roll out your cookies with a good gap between them on the tray

  9. Cook in the oven for 10-11 minutes
  10. They may not look done, but trust me. Take out the cookies, and leave them on the baking trays for half an hour until cooled. Enjoy!
