These 12 Healthy Gluten-Free Cookie Recipes are going to knock your socks off! You won’t even notice that they’re made without gluten. Plus, they’re such indulgent cookies that you won’t be able to tell that they’re a healthy treat.
If you know me then you know I love a good cookie. That’s why I have so many cookie recipes on this blog! You can never have enough gluten-free cookie recipes in your back pocket.
They’re perfect for bake sales, cookie exchanges, parties, or just as an afternoon snack. I know that many times gluten-free cookies claim that they taste good, but the texture is very gritty due to the ingredients used. And honestly I hate when I eat cookies like that.
For this reason I promise to you that these cookies are REALLY good and the texture is even better. I can promise that all of these cookies are crispy on the outside for that perfect crunch but are soft on the inside!
Do I Need Fancy Equipment?
Most of these cookies only require one bowl to make and don’t require you to break out the mixer. It’s simple and clean up is minimal. It also means this is a recipe that you can bring your kids in to help with! They can be in charge of helping with mixing the batter.
What Do I Need?
Most of these gluten-free cookies can be made simply in a mixing bowl and then baked on a sheet pan. You can purchase silicone baking mats if you want to decrease the amount of waste in the kitchen or you can use simple parchment paper.
You’ll also need a cookie rack/cooling rack for the cookies to be placed on afterwards. Since sheet pans retain heat, it’s best to let the cookies cool on a rack and not the sheet pan so the bottoms of the gluten-free cookies aren’t over baked.
Can These Gluten-Free Cookies Be Made Ahead of Time?
Yes! These cookies can all be made ahead of time, making them perfect for bake sales or as a meal prepped snack. Once the gluten-free cookies have cooled to room temperature, transfer them to an airtight container or Ziploc bag to keep them fresh.
Can I Freeze GF Cookies?
If you can’t finish a whole batch of these gluten-free cookies yourself, you can definitely freeze them for later. The cookie recipes should have storage tips in the post but generally, you can place them in a freezer safe container and enjoy them later.
Layer parchment between the cookies to make it easier to take one at a time out. Bring to room temperature and enjoy!
