These gluten free, dairy free chocolate chip cookies are what I imagine the love child of a regular chocolate chip cookie and a slice of funfetti cake would taste like. Weird thought? Perhaps. But also delightful.
If you’re looking for an easy, gluten free, dairy free, chocolate chip cookies recipe for Christmas that will wow the kids and tickle your tastebuds, you found them.
I mean, after all, those New Years Resolutions will be kicking in shortly after so you might as well live it up and overdose on a little sugar before you quit cold turkey, right? Kidding, Kidding.
It’s hard enough to find gluten free cookies, let alone gluten free dairy free cookies, right? So naturally when you find a cookie that checks both those boxes you eat the entire baker’s dozen.
I have to give credit where credit is due. I stumbled upon the O.G. Cake Batter Cookies on Sally’s Baking Addiction a handful of years ago and instantly fell in love. Sadly, shortly after I was told I could no longer eat dairy or gluten, but I was determined not to have to kiss these babies goodbye.
It took a little trial and error but I’m thrilled to say the gluten-free version of these cookies are just as amazing as the original (just slightly crumblier, unless you add a little xantham gum to you recipe version).

Nothing brings out the wannabe baker in me quite like Christmas. It’s my favorite time of year to spend in the kitchen, and regardless on if I can actually eat the goodies or not (which most of the time, I’m able to adapt just like I did for this recipe), I love the way my kitchen smells after every piece of chocolate in town has been inside my oven.
I love baking up little love packages and sending them with family and friends. My son and I have done this for multiple holidays including Valentine’s Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, birthdays, and of course, Christmas.

While I consider this version of cookies to be dairy free, please keep in mind they are technically not dairy free chocolate chip cookies 100% because this version contains ghee.
Because ghee is technically a butter fat from cows, it’s considered dairy. However, ghee does go through a process where the lactose is removed, so a lot of people (including myself) who cannot tolerate dairy, can actually tolerate ghee.
If you are someone who needs this to be 100% dairy free, you could opt for something like a plant-based butter or coconut oil, instead, like this Country Crock Plant Based Butter. (Full disclosure: I haven’t tried it yet but fully intend to!)Print
