These Gluten Free Walnut Chocolate Chip Cookies are perfect if you’re a chocolate & nut person like me!
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!
