  • 1 1/4 cups Bob's Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten-Free Baking Flour (5 ounces; 142 grams)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled slightly (3 ounces; 85 grams)
  • 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar (3 3/4 ounces; 106 grams)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar (1 3/4 ounces; 50 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg (approx. 2 ounces; 50 grams out of shell)
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (6 ounces; 170 grams)


  1. Adjust oven rack to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt together in a medium bowl.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the melted butter, dark brown sugar, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth.
  4. Add the eggs, one at a time, and mix until combined. The mixture should look like thick caramel sauce. Stop the mixer and add the flour. Mix on medium speed until a thick dough forms. Add the chocolate chips and stir until incorporated.
  5. Drop dough, about two tablespoons each, onto prepared cookie sheet. (A cookie scoop makes this easy.) Space cookies about 2 inches apart--you don't want more than 9 cookies on the sheet.
  6. Bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Rotate the baking sheets halfway through baking.
  7. Allow the cookies to cool for five minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  8. Repeat with remaining dough, allowing cookie sheet to cool between each batch.
