Gluten-Free Chocolate Brownie Cookies

Gluten Free Chocolate Brownie Cookies | These are the ultimate in fudgy, delicious cookies! You can't tell they don't contain any flour! Recipe available at

It’s the final day of the year, and I’m waking up in London! I arrived yesterday with my friend Paige around 2 PM, we took a taxi to the hotel, and set off to explore a little bit. We got our new British phones and some toiletries, ate dinner, and proceeded to pass out for 15 hours. Guess we needed a little bit of sleep?

We’re still drowsy/jet-lagged, but so ready for an amazing New Years Eve in London! This is going to be a short post, 1) because our Internet is almost expired, and 2) we really need to get out of bed and go run some errands.

But these cookies though, I couldn’t not share them with you guys. These cookies are rich, decadent, and sooooo chocolatey. These are a cookie that you would have no idea are gluten-free, and honestly, flour in these would just tone down the chocolatey-ness which simply would not do.

These are brownie cookies to the core with their deliciously rich fudge center, and I know they’re a recipe I’ll be making again and again. It’s also incredibly nice that they come together so easily! You could use a mixer if you wanted, but why both with the extra dishes? I used a wooden spoon and a bowl and they came together perfectly, just make sure to mix together your butter and sugar adequately (room temperature butter really helps with that!).

I hope each of you has a FUN and safe New Years Eve, and Happy New Year to you all!

  25. I want to devour these cookies, every single one!

  26. These cookies look delish! I love that they are gluten-free! Good luck with your semester in London! How exciting!

  27. These have been a big hit. I’ve made them at least 3 times already for various individuals and groups and made sure the ones who might “shudder” at the word “GF” in a recipe understand that the recipe doesn’t have any GF ingredients…just lacks flour. I tend to call them flour-less more than GF because of the label but whatever you call them…they are a BIG HIT and easy to make (and the recipe doubles well too!). I made them again this AM and got 101 (love that 1!) from a double batch to share with 3 different parties and will still have enough to share with a 4th party tomorrow. Win-win!! Thanks for a keeper recipe!!

    • So glad that everyone loved them! They were a total hit in my family too – and they are so easy to make! Good to know that the recipe doubles well. Thanks for the comment!

  28. Sorry I’m late, but have so much fun in London! It’s definitely my favorite of all cities I’ve been in Europe…not sure why. These brownie cookies look amazing. What could be better than a brownie and cookie combined!

  29. I’m totally into these gluten-free chocolate cookies! Simple and decadent.

  30. I just baked a batch and they are amazing. They taste exactly like double chocolate chip cookies I get at Tim Horton’s, except gluten free and even better. I jokingly told my roommate I messed up the batch and hence I will be a good friend and eat them all haha.

  31. I have no idea how big your supposed to make these.I just took a easpoon and scooped up a blob. I think thats too much since one poster said she got 101 from a double recipe!! She must have made teeny tiny cookies! Im hoping my miuch larger blobs come out well..

  32. Made a batch last night and they are YUMMY — my only question is the amount of salt. Was it supposed to be unsalted butter? I used regular salted butter and feel that it’s too much with the added salt. Think I would either cut the salt to 1/4 tsp or use unsalted butter. Will try again and see if it makes a difference. =)

    • Hi D, I always use unsalted butter, so it was my mistake that it was not reflected in the recipe. It’s been updated to show unsalted butter! Hope you like them, and hope you LOVE them if you make them again with unsalted butter :) :)

  33. I am a gluten-free newbie baker so maybe it’s just me, but I had no luck with these cookies. I made tablespoon sized balls but once it the oven they spread completely flat, turn a deep brown/almost black and aren’t even fully cooked. :( is there something I’m doing wrong?! I followed the receipe!

    • Hi Amy. Since I’m not in the kitchen with you, I’m not sure exactly what went wrong! It sounds like your cookie dough may have been too thin if they spread so thin, but it’s odd that they didn’t even cook. To counteract them spreading, try refrigerating the dough for about an hour or until it’s thoroughly chilled before baking. I’m sorry I can’t be more help.
