The Best Dairy-Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
This is literally the best (read: THE BEST) no-chill dairy-free chocolate chip cookie recipe. It’s my go-to. My never-fail. My ride-or-die chocolate chip cookie. Crisp edges with a thick chewy center loaded with little chocolate morsels in every bite. The magical ingredient is coarse sea salt. I repeat…coarse sea salt. Not table salt. Not kosher salt. Not fine sea salt. Coarse sea salt. Just trust me in this. I promise I will not steer your cookie ship awry.
How To Customize A Chocolate Chip Cookie
This cookie dough comes together really simple and straightforward. And here’s the second-best part: you can customize it to tailor your cookie craving. Butterscotch chips sound good? Great, add those in. Feeling a bit nutty? Perfect, chop some up and toss them in.
Rather some dried fruit and seeds? Hmmm…I question your cookie preference but I’ll keep my judgments to myself so go ahead and add in that dried fruit and seeds. Just make sure it’s the same measurement as what the recipe calls for. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
How To Make These Chocolate Chip Cookies Gluten-Free
Since my daughter’s celiac diagnosis I have been going back and testing my recipes to see if they are compatible with being gluten-free. I am thrilled to say that these delectable chocolate chip cookies can indeed be made gluten-free. No need to change the recipe itself, just simply swap in a gluten-free 1:1 flour baking blend in place of the regular all-purpose flour. A quick note: make sure your gluten-free flour blend contains xanthan gum. If it doesn’t you’ll need to add ¼ teaspoon in additionally.
