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!

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 🙂
- Start by preheating your oven to 200 c
- Cream your butter, sugar, and maple syrup in a big bowl
- Add in your egg, and stir until well blended
- Add 1 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
- Stir in the sifted flour and cocoa, and mix until well combined (sometimes easier to mix with your hands!)
- Add 1/2 cup of milk, 1 tablespoon at a time until you get your desired consistency
- Add all of your chosen chocolate to the cookie mix, and mix until all chocolate is dispersed evenly (I used 70% dark cocoa chocolate)
- Line two baking sheets, and roll out your cookies with a good gap between them on the tray
(as you can see, I left my mix in big pieces, I would recommend flattening them down a bit before baking)
- Cook in the oven for 10-11 minutes
- 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!
