Gluten Free "Potato Flour" Chocolate Chip Cookies

GF "Potato Flour" Chocolate Chip Cookies
(Adapted from same box of potato flour as the brownies.)

2 eggs
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup sucanat or whole cane sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup rice flour
3 TBS potato flour
2 tsp homemade baking powder
Pinch of unrefined salt
1 cup lecithin free chocolate chips (I LOVE 70% dark chocolate in this recipe)

preheat oven to 375*F

Beat eggs and blend in sugar and vanilla. Mix dry ingredients separately and then add to wet ingredients. Add chocolate chips (or substitute broken pieces of a 70% chocolate bar or 2.) Drop from spoon onto cookie sheet and bake for 10-11 minutes.

I LOVE coconut oil...but I don't think it substitutes well in this recipe.


  1. I really like your blog, can't wait to see what's next! :)

  2. I made this, but did sub coconut oil (dairy allergy). I also subbed almond flour for the 3 tbsp potato flour and swapped 1/4 cup of tapioca starch for 1/4 cup of rice flour. For the sugar, I subbed 1/2 c of brown rice syrup (a la perfect health diet) and 1/2 cup of Sun Crystals (not ideal, but it was what I had). Anyways, I tasted a bit too much of the batter ::blush:: and decided to make it into a bread. It was amazing! I realize it is quite different from your recipe, but I based it off of your recipe, so I decided to comment and say thanks! I linked from your comment on the perfect health diet website.

  3. You are right, you made something completely different...but I am glad you were inspired!

    Potato flour has some unique moisture holding qualities that help make the cookie soft, coconut flour MIGHT be a better substitute...but it's pricey.

    A better dessert recipe that works VERY well with coconut oil is:


    You could probably make cookies instead of brownies if you tweaked it a little.
