What gluten free flour is best for baking cookies?
I used Namaste Perfect Flour Blend for this recipe. Namaste flour works very well for cookies, and it’s easy to find at many stores or online at Amazon or Vitacost. You could also use another flour blend that works for your dietary needs.
You can also try Enjoy Life Gluten Free Flour or Now Foods All Purpose Gluten Free Flour, both of those blends work really well for baking cookies.
Can I use regular all purpose flour?
Yes, if you aren’t gluten free, go ahead and use all purpose flour or whole wheat flour in an equal amount.

Double Chocolate Brownie Cookies (Gluten Free, Vegan).
Chewy, chocolatey, and decadent, these double chocolate brownie cookies are the perfect treat!
- ½ cup dairy free dark chocolate chips I used Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate Morsels
- ⅓ cup vegan buttery spread
- ⅔ cup organic cane sugar
- ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- ¾ cup gluten free flour blend
- 3 ½ Tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ⅛ teaspoon salt
For the topping:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Place the ½ cup of dark chocolate chips in a large microwave safe bowl. Microwave for one minute, then stir. If they aren't melted, microwave in 10 second intervals, stirring in between, until smooth.
Add the vegan buttery spread to the bowl, and stir until it melts into the hot chocolate chips.
Add the cane sugar and applesauce, then stir well. Add the cocoa powder, gluten free flour blend, baking powder, and salt. Stir until the batter comes together.
Drop the batter onto the prepared cookie sheet, leaving about an inch between cookies. Depending on the size of your cookie sheet, you may be able to fit all 18 cookies on, or just 12, setting aside the rest of the batter until later.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 11-12 minutes.
Allow cookies to cool on the cookie sheet, then remove and place on a tray or plate.
Melt the additional chocolate chips following the same instructions above. Use a spoon to drizzle the melted chocolate on top of the cooled cookies.
This recipes makes 18 cookies.

I usually use your recipes and they always turn out great, but for some reason these cookies just ended up melting into each other..? Help!
I’m sorry that happened! What kind of flour did you use? What kind of vegan buttery spread?
These were easy to make! My children loved them!
