Welcome to the February Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop, hosted by My Pinterventures. The purpose of this Pinterest Challenge is to motivate all the participants of this hop (and you too) to not just pin, but to make it happen! This month, I chose to bake Gluten Free Sugar Free Chocolate Chip Cookies from this pin from Sweet Annas.

Gluten Free Sugar Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Eating gluten and sugar free, it is hard to find a good chocolate chip cookie recipe. The big and soft version are not my favorite. I prefer the chewy kind. But it is really hard to make those without brown sugar.  So, recently I found a recipe for making “sugar free” brown sugar. I tried it in this recipe and they turned out sooo good! I did revise the original recipe for these cookies just a little to meet my dietary needs. 


Makes about 3 dozen

1 ¼ cups + 2 Tablespoons gluten free flour mix**
¾ cup almond flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
¾ cup coconut oil, melted
1 cup “brown sugar” (see how to make sugar free below)
½ cup xylitol
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 ½ cups sugar free chocolate chips

** if your mix does not include xanthan gum, add 1 teaspoon
To make sugar free brown sugar – mix 1 cup of granulated xylitol with 3 Tablespoons molasses and mix well

Directions: (requires 30 minutes of chilling before baking)
  1. Mix together the gf flour, almond flour, baking soda and salt. 
  2. In a separate large bowl, beat the coconut oil, “brown sugar” and xylitol. Add the eggs 1 at a time beating after each. Then mix in the vanilla.
  3. Stir the flour mixture into the wet ingredients mixing well. Add the chocolate chips and stir those in. Cover bowl and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
  4. Heat oven to 350° and line cookie pans with parchment paper. 
  5. Use a Tablespoon to scoop dough onto pans leaving room in between for spreading. 
  6. Bake for 11-13 minutes or until golden around the edges. Let cool on pans for a few minutes before removing them to a cooling rack. 

Additional note – they do freeze well!
