The Ultimate Gluten-Free Double Chocolate Cookie

This is the ultimate gluten-free double chocolate cookie recipe. The cookies are soft (and stay that way) and rich with chocolate flavor without being too sweet.
Prep Time25 mins
Cook Time11 mins
Total Time36 mins


  • 1/3 cup butter, softened at room temperature
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups almond flour
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 ounces bittersweet baking chocolate, chopped
  • flaked sea salt for topping, optional


  • Place oven racks in the upper third and lower third slots. Preheat oven to 350ºF (175ºC). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Using a hand mixer, cream butter and sugar together at medium speed until butter is fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  • Add the egg and vanilla and beat for another minute.
  • In a separate bowl, mix almond flour, cocoa, coconut, baking powder, and salt. Pour into bowl with wet ingredients and mix until just incorporated. Fold in chopped chocolate.
  • Using a cookie scoop or a measuring spoon, scoop cookie batter onto baking sheet, leaving about 2 inches between cookies. If you're using a measuring spoon, scoop our about 1 1/2 tablespoons of batter.
  • Bake cookies for 11 to 12 minutes. Try not to overcook them--they stay softer if you don't cook them as much. Sprinkle flaked sea salt on top, if desired. Let cookies cool for 5 minutes before transferring to wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.


If you're not gluten-free, you can definitely substitute all-purpose flour for the almond flour.
