Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the gluten-free flour, almond flour, baking soda and salt until evenly combined. Set aside.
  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Once the butter is melted start to whisk constantly. First the butter will begin to foam, then after a couple of minutes it will begin to brown on the bottom of the saucepan. Turn off the heat as soon as the solids turn brown and the butter gives off a nutty aroma. Pour into a glass mixing bowl to prevent burning.
  • Add the milk, brown sugar and white sugar. Whisk to combine. Add the egg and vanilla and whisk until smooth and creamy.
  • Using a rubber spatula, mix in the dry ingredients until well combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Cover the bowl and let sit for 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350F. Scoop the cookie dough (about 2 Tablespoons of dough per cookie) and place a few inches apart on the baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until golden and the center is set.
  • Let cool 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to continue cooling. Enjoy!

Notes

A few tricks make these gluten-free cookies perfect – soft, chewy, golden and irresistible! Be sure to use a gluten-free all-purpose flour that contains xanthan gum or these cookies will spread. I use King Arthur Flour Measure-for-Measure Flour that comes in the bag. Other 1:1 gluten-free flours that contain xanthan gum will also work. Note: The King Arthur Flour All-Purpose Flour in the box will not work as it does not contain xanthan gum. 
DAIRY-FREE: To make these dairy-free use earth balance buttery sticks and reduce the amount of almond milk to 1 teaspoon.
NUT-FREE: Use 1/4 cup more gluten-free flour in place of the almond flour.
