A gluten-free fudgy brownie cookie is a gourmet cookie that combines the rich, chocolatey goodness of a brownie with the chewy texture of a cookie. Every bite tastes like chocolate chip cookie but with a fudgy texture and extra chocolate buttery flavor.

Before I begin with the details, I would like to share that it took me only ten minutes of hands-on time. A cookie recipe doesn’t get much easier than this fudgy brownie cookie.


Start with creaming the butter, olive oil, cocoa and coconut sugar. I used an electric mixer. This way, I let the mixer do its thing.

While the fudgy chocolate buttery mixture is getting creamy, I whisk the three dry ingredients together. You will need only one flour, a basic gluten-free all-purpose blend, baking powder and salt.


Now that the fudgy, buttery mixture is super creamy, add an egg and vanilla extract and let the mixer blend everything.

It’s time to put the mixer away now. Add the dry ingredients to the fudgy cream, and using a spatula, mix everything until you no longer see dry patches. But do not over mix. It takes about a minute to mix everything. Then fold in the mini chocolate chips and if using, the chopped nuts.

Drop the cookie dough about 1/2-inch apart on a baking sheet using an ice cream scoop or a large spoon. I like topping each cookie with extra chocolate chips because I LOVE chocolate.

Using your hands, slightly flatten each cookie and bake for 10 -12 minutes. These cookies bake very quickly, so you will need only 10 minutes if you are making smaller cookies.

The best way to know if the cookies are done is to press the top of a cookie gently, it shouldn’t be soft. But don’t overbake them, or they will become too dry. I made giant cookies, yielding 15, and it took only 12 minutes of baking time.

Cool the cookies for about 5 minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer onto a cooling rack. That’s it! Another easy gluten-free cookie recipe you may enjoy is the Gluten-Free One Bowl Chocolate Chip Cookie.

These fudgy brownie cookies are so delicious when they are still a little warm. However, the cookies do firm up once they are completely cooled.

  • It is best to weigh gluten free flour for best results. If you don’t have a scale when measuring the flour, please fill the measuring cup with a spoon and then level it off with a knife.
  • The butter and egg have to be at room temperature.
  • These gluten-free fudgy brownie cookies are so good when they are chilled. So yes, I keep the cookies in an airtight container in the refrigerator. 
  • I love these chocolate cookies when they are cold. This is because they are so good when they are cold, especially in the summer. But they are also super delicious when they are still warm. So it all depends on what you like.

These fudgy brownie cookies are perfect for dipping. So if you have vanilla bean ice cream or whipped cream, go ahead and dip. Or, dip them into a hot cup of coffee.

I can’t describe how good of a dessert they make or a sweet, satisfying snack. Enjoy!

I can’t answer that question Linda, since I have not tried it in this recipe, sorry. But, if I were to guess the cookies may become too greasy and fall apart since almond flour is fatty and this recipe already includes butter and olive oil.


Do you think subbing Almond flour might work?


love love these cookies, the texture is between a cookie and a brownie,


thank you Michelle
