An easy recipe for gluten free dairy free chocolate chip cookies. They are delicious, and healthy enough to be eaten for breakfast and the entire family will love them!
My dad passed away almost 5 years ago now. It was without a doubt the most life-changing day of my life and I will forever mark time with a before and after. He was one of the greatest men I’ve ever known and it’s important to me to keep his memory alive. One of the ways I do that is by making this gluten free, dairy free cookie recipe.
These cookies were my sister-in-law’s recipe originally. She would always make them when we would all get together and they were my dad’s absolute favorite. For Christmas or his birthday, he would request from her an entire batch all for himself -though we were usually able to sweet talk him into sharing a few.
I really hadn’t ever thought of sharing them here before. They are SO good and decadent, that in my head I had written them off as not being GERD-friendly. They will trick you like that. So comforting and delicious that you really feel like you’re splurging.
We hope you will enjoy them just as much as he did.
Ingredients for Gluten Free Dairy Free Cookies
Here’s what you’ll need:
Gluten-Free Flour – I use All-Purpose gluten-free flour that is “1 to 1” or “measure for measure” with ordinary flour. This is theone I always use.
Oats – As we learned in our post5 Foods That Won’t Give You Acid Reflux, Oatmeal is a high-fiber food which means it promotes gut health and reduces constipation. Keep your gut happy and there’s a good chance you’ll have fewer reflux symptoms.
Coconut – Rich in many nutrients and minerals. Some of these nutrients also help protect your stomach lining from inflammation, which reduces acid reflux and GERD symptoms. Plus it adds a crunch and texture that is just right.
Raisins – Dots them with chewy pops of sweetness.
Cacao Chips – Great for any baking recipes that call for unsweetened chocolate, and as a replacement for chocolate chips for those who wish to consume less sugar but still enjoy the flavor and numerous health benefits of chocolate. Excellent, rich & complex chocolate flavor.
Baking Soda – Responsible for the bubbles in the batter that make these babies into the airy, soft pillows that they are.
Salt – To make the sweet and oh-so-comforting flavors really pop!
Honey – Adds a note of sweetness and a hint of decadence.
Plant-Based Butter or Ghee – For added richness and moisture and let’s face it – to make them delicious!
Vanilla – Fills your pancakes with delicious warmth.

It couldn’t be simpler, I promise.
First, mix all the ingredients together in a bowl.
Next, place the mixing bowl in the refrigerator and let chill for 30 minutes.
Now, use a cookie scoop to scoop dough balls onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake the cookies at 350 for 12-14 minutes, or until they’re lightly brown around the edges.
Finally, remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool for at least 10 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
