These Gluten Free Walnut Chocolate Chip Cookies are perfect if you’re a chocolate & nut lover!
This is the second recipe in my gluten free chocolate cookie series! The first were these Gluten Free Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies and the rest I will link in at the bottom of this post as I add them. All of them are so delicious, but if you love nuts mixed with chocolate, these Gluten Free Walnut Chocolate Chip Cookies are for you!

The only difference between this recipe and my non-gluten free version is that I used Pillsbury’s Gluten Free Flour Blend and regular unsweetened cocoa instead of dark cocoa. I usually use Pillsbury gluten free flour or King Arthur’s for baking. These cookies came out fatter than the non-gluten free version. They are chewy in the center and crispy on the edges. I won’t lie and say they are the perfect alternative to cookies containing gluten. The break a little easier, but not as bad as a lot of other homemade recipes I’ve tried. The occasional breakage didn’t stop my boyfriend from eating almost all of them and my 8-year-old son didn’t seem to notice that they were gluten free!
I was really happy with the way these cookies turned out appearance-wise as well! With all my blogging lately, I’ve been learning quite a few tricks of the trade! To get cookies that look like mine, leave some mix-in aside and press them right into the top of the dough balls before baking. Then you’ll end up with chips and walnuts right on top where you can see them! I think it’s fun, but if you could care less and are all about the taste, just mix em all in there!

- 1 1/4 Cups butter softened
- 2 Cups sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 Cups gluten free all purpose flour I used Pillsbury
- 3/4 Cups unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 Cup chocolate chips
- 1/2 Cup chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a medium bowl mix together the butter and sugar in an electric blender on low-med speed. Add the eggs one at a time, then the vanilla.
In a second bowl combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add to the wet ingredients until well combined. Stir in the chocolate chips and walnut pieces.
Drop by tablespoons about 2 inches apart on a baking sheet (I use a Silpat Mat to prevent sticking). Bake 8-9 minutes until cooked through. LET COOL before removing from the baking sheet to prevent them from breaking. Enjoy!
