Jaffa Choc-Chip Cookies - Gluten Free

Total Time
Prep 40 mins
Cook 15 mins

These are a crunchy tasty gluten-free biscuit. A slightly different taste and texture to regular GF cookie recipes. (I must apologise as my original posting did not include the baking time - now corrected)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 170 degrees centigrade. Line biscuit trays with baking paper.
  2. Cream butter and sugars until light and creamy.
  3. Gradually add the egg and rind until lightly combined.
  4. In a seperate bowl -sift flours, bicarbonate soda and cream of tartar. Fold this sifted mixture into the creamed butter mixture. Fold in the choc chips.
  5. Roll teaspoons of mixture into balls and place on trays. There is no need to flatten the biscuits as they will flatten and spread during cooking. Do not place the biscuits too close together.
  6. Bake 10 to 15 minutes.
  7. Stand on trays 5 minutes before cooling biscuits on wire racks. They will set as they cool.

I used Earth Balance margarine and added 1/4 tsp salt. Left out orange rind, but would add vanilla next time, for a little more flavor. I used 1/2 C arrowroot and 1/2 C potato starch. Would also increase the choc. chips. This makes a crispy cookie that doesn't taste like buckwheat at all. They went 17 minutes on my stone and 13 minutes on my aluminum. Held together nicely too.

I really mean this 5 stars. We enjoyed these cookies immensely even though I overcooked them a little. And Jubes is right, they do spread. We didn't have any orange or choc chips so used coconut essence instead and they were still lovely. What I like about them too, is the buckwheat flour, it makes them a protein filled cookie and the taste and texture I found no different to ordinary home made cookies. Well done.
