Slightly crisp, buttery edges. Chewy, soft-baked centers. Pockets of melty dark chocolate. Our gluten-free chocolate chip cookies have earned icon status at Otto’s HQ (no shortage of taste-testers around here). While every baker has a few special tweaks that makes their CCC’s “the best,” our secret ingredient is too good to keep to ourselves. Otto’s Cassava Flour replaces traditional wheat flour in our easy recipe for thick, bakery-style chocolate chip cookies that we’re proud to share with all our friends—we hope you have just as much fun doing the same.

The Best Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe - Otto's Naturals

    Prep time: 8-10 minutes
    Cook time: 15 minutes
    Total time: 25-30 minutes
    Yield: approximately 24 large cookies



    1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
    2. Cream together butter and sugars until combined. (If using melted butter, allow to cool for a few minutes before combining with sugar.)
    3. Beat in eggs and vanilla until fluffy.
    4. In a separate bowl mix cassava flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder. Mix the dry ingredients slowly into the butter mixture until well combined. 
    5. Add chocolate chips and mix well.
    6. (If using melted butter, place cookie dough in the refrigerator for while you clean up so it has a chance to firm up enough to hold its shape when it’s scooped.)
    7. Roll 2-3 Tbsp. (depending on how large you like your cookies) of dough into balls and place them evenly spaced on your prepared cookie sheets. (Or use a cookie scoop to make your cookies!)
    8. Bake in a preheated oven for approximately 8-10 minutes. Take them out when they are just barely starting to turn brown.
    9. Let them sit on the baking pan for 2 minutes before removing to the cooling rack. They will firm up as they cool and even stay soft and chewy for days afterward! 


    • When you remove the cookies from the oven they will still look a slight bit doughy. THIS is the secret! Please, do NOT overbake! Take them out when they are just barely starting to turn brown.
    • *Butter and salt. Both salted and unsalted butter are great! Use whatever is your preference. Be sure to use natural Sea Salt (not iodized table salt, as its grains are finer and therefore saltier by volume). If you are using salted butter you may want to start with 1/2 tsp. salt and adjust to your taste. We always make it with salted butter and 1 tsp. sea salt but everyone’s taste is different, so do you!
