Servings 24 cookies


  • 1 ½ cups gluten free flour blend I like to use the Namaste Foods Gluten Free Perfect Flour Blend
  • ½ cup gluten free oat flour I like using Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Oat Flour
  • ½ tsp ground cardamom optional, but extra tasty
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ½ cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tbs flax meal
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 6.5 oz chopped dark chocolate
  • flaky salt for topping


  • Preheat the oven to 375°
  • Melt ½ c coconut oil.
  • In a small bowl, mix 3 tbs ground flax meal with 9 tbs water. Let this set for at least 5 minutes, until it is a gel-like consistency.
  • Whisk melted oil, packed brown sugar, vanilla, and gelled flax meal in a large bowl until thoroughly combined and a bit lighter in color.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cardamom.
  • Add the dry ingredients into the wet and mix until flour is fully incorporated. Batter should be slightly thinner than you might be expecting.
  • Chop 6.5 oz of dark chocolate bars until small, angular chunks. (Or measure out 6.5 oz of chocolate chips!)
  • Fold chocolate into the dough.
  • Let the dough rest for 10 minutes.
  • Measure out cookie dough with a 2 tbs scoop.
  • Flatten cookies slightly. Sprinkle with flaky sat.
  • Bake for 14-16 minutes, rotating trays half way through baking.
  • Cool completely before transferring to airtight containers.
