If your family loves these classic Chocolate Crinkle Cookies, they’ll really love this gluten-free variety. 


  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, or cacao powder
  • 2 cups gluten-free flour blend – I recommend making this mix and adding 1 teaspoon xanthan gum, or using this one
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350º
  2. In a large bowl cream together butter, sugar, and vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time, and mis until just combined
  3. In a separate bowl, combine remaining ingredients, except the powdered sugar
  4. Add dry ingredients mixture to the butter/sugar/egg mix and stir well
  5. Pour powdered sugar into a small bowl
  6. Scoop cookie dough with a standard cookie scoop, or tablespoon
  7. Drop into powdered sugar and roll into ball, coating entirely with sugar
  8. Place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet, leaving enough room between cookies for some spread
  9. Bake for 10-15 minutes until they have spread some and look crackled
  10. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes before removing from cookie sheet and letting cool completely
  11. Enjoy!
