Allergy-free Chocolate chip cookies (gluten-free, vegan, nut-free)

Comments : 19 Posted in : Eggless cookies, snack on by : apsara Tags: , , , ,

Of late, I have been experimenting with my own gluten-free flour mixes. Trying to increase the whole-grain content of GF flours is a challenge, since it can lead to some compromise in taste. Finding the right balance with other flavors is important.  🙂

Disclaimer: Although I have said this is a nut-free recipe, coconut oil and coconut palm sugar are used here. For coconut allergy, substitute Earth Balance for coconut oil and raw sugar for coconut palm sugar.


Here’s a cookie flour blend that has worked relatively well:

To make 1 cup or 100 g of flour blend:

Sorghum (Jowar) flour- 40 g.

Oat flour- 20 g. (if gluten-free oat flour is not available, can use millet flour instead)

Tapioca starch- 20 g.

Rice flour- 20 g.

The resulting cookies are crunchy (but not cracker-like), because I made them thinner than regular oatmeal cookies. If baked for a few minutes less, softer texture can be achieved.
