20 gluten-free cookies that you'll want to inhale!

Gluten-free Cookies:

Gluten-free M&M cookies

These gluten-free M&M cookies are so perfectly soft and chewy! And there’s 1 1/2 pounds of M&Ms in there, which adds even more to their deliciousness. ;)

Gluten-free pumpkin cookies

What the Fork describes these gluten-free pumpkin cookies as “little pumpkin clouds covered in more clouds of cream cheese frosting.” That was enough to sell me!

Blueberry Cookies

These blueberry cookies, which are really just like blueberry muffin tops, are some of the most delicious things I’ve ever eaten. It shouldn’t be surprising, given all the sugar and butter in these, and the fact that the cookies are rolled in streusel, but they’re worth it! And the blueberry + lemon combination is almost guaranteed to make you happy. :)

Gluten-free white chocolate macadamia cookies

These gluten-free white chocolate macadamia cookies from Gluten-free Palate are chewy, crunchy, and soft all at once. If you’ve never tried macadamia nuts + white chocolate together, you’re missing out!

Chocolate dipped brown sugar shortbread

This chocolate dipped brown sugar shortbread is a typically Christmas-y cookie that should be enjoyed year-round. We loved these cookies so much that we made them as gifts for basically everyone we know! They look great and more importantly, are ridiculously delicious.

Gluten-free Dairy-free Cookies:

Molasses cookies

These molasses cookies are soft, chewy and remind me of the Archway cookies from my childhood! I highly recommend not waiting until Christmas to try these out. If you’ve never had a molasses cookie before, I’m here to tell you that they taste WAY better than they sound!

Gluten-free dairy-free sugar cookies

These gluten-free dairy-free sugar cookies from Allergy-free Alaska are perfect for any holiday, or just whenever!

The best ever gluten-free oatmeal cookies

Good luck finding a chewier, most delicious recipe than these gluten-free oatmeal cookies. ;) Seriously – they’re everything you could want in a cookie!

Coconut lover's oatmeal cookies

You only need 5 ingredients for these coconut lover’s oatmeal cookies from Barefeet in the Kitchen! They really couldn’t be any simpler.

Gluten-free Vegan Cookies:

Peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough bites

These peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough bites are my second most popular recipe, even 5 years after posting them! They’re based on chickpeas (which I promise you can’t taste! I don’t like chickpeas, so…), peanut butter and honey or maple syrup. They’re just magical straight from the oven.

Vegan almond butter chocolate chip walnut oat cookies

These vegan almond butter chocolate chip walnut oat cookies from Beaming Baker use oats, oat flour and almond butter to create a perfectly chewy texture!

Chocolate peanut butter macaroons

Chocolate + peanut butter + maple syrup + oats + coconut. These chocolate peanut butter macaroons make me so happy! I bet they’ll have the same effect on you.

Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies

Bakerita’s oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are calling my name. They’re gooey in the center with crispy edges and big chocolate chunks. Sounds perfect to me!

No-bake peanut butter chocolate chip cookies

These no-bake peanut butter chocolate chip cookies are unlike a lot of other no-bake cookies I’ve had. The peanut butter mixture that you boil up is slightly caramel-like and also has maple syrup in it. I’m a huge fan of maple and peanut butter together so these cookies are one of my very favorites.

Maple pecan chocolate chip cookies

Beaming Baker’s maple pecan chocolate chip cookies are on my must-try list. I’m always down for maple + pecan anything!

Grain-free Cookies

Flourless chocolate peanut butter cookie sandwiches

The cookies in these flourless chocolate peanut butter cookie sandwiches are kind of like a cross between a chewy and fudgy cookie and a brownie. And the peanut butter cup-like filling just sends them over the top!

Carrot cake cookies with cream cheese glaze

These carrot cake cookies with cream cheese glaze from Bakerita are like carrot cake but in cookie form. I love eating cake but do not like making it. These cookies are the perfect solution!

Grain-free thumbprint cookies

My grain-free and gluten-free thumbprint cookies have been a big hit. I like them with raspberry jam and lemon zest + extract or with almond extract, but you can use whatever jam and flavoring you’d like!

Peppermint macarons

Not only do these peppermint macarons from What the Fork sound delicious, but they’re free of food coloring! Something that’s always turned me off of other recipes.

Gluten-free chocolate thumbprint cookies

These gluten-free chocolate thumbprint cookies from Gluten-free Palate only have 5 ingredients, are based on pecans (or walnuts) and are honey-sweetened. I’ll definitely be trying these soon!

I hope you found some inspiration! Which recipes do you want to make first?
