Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Hemp Seed Cookies


I created this recipe about 3 years ago and I have made it over 5 times. It turns out perfectly every time. I do not publish any gluten-free recipes that I have not made 5 or more times with perfect results.

Total Time:
1 hrs 3 mins
4 dozen cookies


  • 1 ¼ cups sorghum flour

  • 1 cup white rice flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened

  • ¾ cup white sugar

  • ¾ cup brown sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips

  • 1 cup hemp seed hearts


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. Combine sorghum flour, rice flour, baking soda, xanthan gum, and salt together in a large bowl.

  3. Beat butter, white sugar, and brown sugar together in a large bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat eggs one at a time into the butter mixture; add vanilla extract. Pour butter mixture over flour mixture. Beat together until combined, about 2 minutes. Fold chocolate chips and hemp seeds into the cookie dough.

  4. Place cookie dough in the refrigerator to firm up, at least 20 minutes.

  5. Drop heaping tablespoons of dough 2 inches apart on baking sheets; press down with the back of the spoon to flatten slightly.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven until cookie edges are lightly golden, 8 to 11 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool before taking off the parchment paper, about 10 minutes. Cool baking sheet before re-using for another batch.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute semisweet chocolate chips for the milk chocolate if preferred.

With GF baking, you may need a lower or higher temperature depending on your oven. It may be best to make the first sheet at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and increase the temperature to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) if needed.

Do not use foil or grease baking sheets with cooking spray; use only parchment paper.
