Gluten Free Chocolate Chip, Raisin, Walnut Cookies

"These relatively healthy absolutely delicious chocolate chip cookies are a gluten-free adaptation of my favorite chocolate chip cookie. The raisins keep the cookies moist but they are hardly noticeable. It is easiest if you use a pre-made gluten free flour mix. Just about any mixture will do but I use Food Philosopher (registered) brown rice flour mixture and here is the breakdown of the ingredients that make up that mixture*: 1 1/2 cups brown rice flour 1/3 cup potato starch 8 teaspoons tapioca flour 1/2 teaspoon tapioca flour. I have had success with other gluten-free flour mixes but this one works the best for me."

Ready In:
32 cookies




  • Preheat the oven to 190 degrees C (375 degrees F).
  • Mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl. (Use a stand mixer if available.).
  • Mix the oil, egg and sugars until pale and creamy looking. Add the vanilla and water.
  • Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until thoroughly combined. If the chocolate chips fall out of the dough, add a little more water.
  • Using two spoons, drop small walnut sized piles of the mixture onto Teflon or baking-paper-lined oven sheets, leaving about 4–5cm between each to allow spreading as they cook.
  • Place, one tray at a time, in the middle of the oven and bake for 10–11 minutes until not quite golden brown. Be careful not to overcook, they are still tasty but crumbly.
  • Cool on baking tray for a few minutes, then on racks until completely cool before transferring to an airtight container for storage. They keep well for a few days, otherwise store in the freezer.

I am a semi-retired graphic designer and American ex-pat living on 2.5 acres on a beautiful river in the country. Now that I am semi-retired (and my husband is retired) we have time and no money so we are baking everything from scratch and have started a vegetable garden. I don't bother with cookbooks much now that I've found Recipezaar. Hardly a day goes by that I don't make something from the Zaar and my husband often asks "what are we going to make today". Mid-way through 2009 my husband found out he had a gluten allergy so we've been experimenting and tweaking gluten-free recipes with mostly great results. We go out with a walking group every second week, there is so much beautiful scenery on New Zealand's West Coast.
