Servings 12 cookies


  • 1 cup corn flour
  • 1 cup gluten free baking blend flour or all-purpose flour (I use Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free 1:1 Baking Blend Flour)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 4 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup unsalted butter (1 stick) softened to room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup milk (dairy or non-dairy, of your choice)
  • cup chocolate chips (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together to corn flour, gluten free blend or all-purpose flour, baking powder, cocoa powder and salt. Set aside.
  • In another mixing bowl or in the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the softened butter and sugar.
  • Add the dry ingredients into the creamed butter and sugar and add in the milk.
    Mix everything until there's no dry flour visible, then fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Form the dough into 12 even-sized balls and arrange them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes.
