There is nothing quite like a chewy chocolate chip cookie with cold ice cream and these fit the bill perfectly! You guys, when I say these cookies are good I mean they are really good…

My husband who can eat anything gave them his stamp of approval and even went back for seconds and thirds! The kids also love them and of course this cookie loving mama can’t get enough.

You can enjoy them hot out of the oven or make them into cookie sandwiches with vegan icecream and/OR this delicious vegan coconut whipped cream. Either way is great!

Why vegan?

I’m not vegan myself but I know many people who are. These gluten-free vegan ice cream sandwich chocolate chip cookies are something I wanted to create just for them.

My sister and her little girl with anaphylactic egg allergy particularly because they are always going out of their way to feed me delicious gluten-free food when I see them.

Remember when she made me this instant pot gluten-free mac & cheese? It’s now one of our go to dinners. I thought this would be a fun way to pay her back maybe served up with our vegan tikka masala or salad bar.

And even if you don’t need to be vegan, you will love them! But we also have these delicious gluten-free snickerdoodles, gluten-free oatmeal cream pies, gluten-free ginger molasses cookies and the BEST gluten-free chocolate chip cookies you could try.

How to make them egg free

Typically I find that baking without eggs is tough. Thanks to one secret ingredient, chia, I can now do it without losing flavor or texture. In fact, chia gives baked goods a beautiful chewy texture as well as keeping them moist.

What gluten-free flour to use

There are lots of gluten-free flour mixtures out there, but none of them are as good as mixing flours yourself. In my humble opinion anyway.

I realize that using multiple gluten-free flours in these cookies might seem a bit intimidating. However, this is one of the reasons they taste so great. I highly recommend sticking to this if you want a truly authentic chocolate chip cookie taste.

When searching for a gluten-free cup for cup flour blend, there are many great ones out there. Just make sure for this recipe, that you use one that contains xanthan gum or that you still add it if it isn’t in the flour blend.

I recommend Bob’s Red Mill 1-for-1 gluten-free baking flour, Cup4Cup flour blend or even our gluten-free flour blend if you are wanting to make it homemade.

Vegan Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies Step-by-Step

How to make vegan gluten-free chocolate chip cookies

  • Combine all flours, starches, xanthan gum and salt in a bowl
  • In another bowl, whip butter alternative, sugars, vanilla and almond extracts until light and fluffy
  • Add the chia egg to the sugar mixture and combine
  • Slowly add in the dry ingredients and mix well
  • Fold in the chocolate chips
  • Place rounded T amounts of cookie dough on a silicone baking mat or wax paper lined baking sheet 2 inches apart
  • Bake 9-11 minutes or until golden brown with slightly crispy edges
  • Let cool then assemble ice cream sandwiches by placing ice cream in between two cookies

Vegan Ice Cream

We used Perfectly Free ice cream in between two chewy cookies because they have a great texture and taste. But there are so many options like So Delicious, Halo Top, Oatly, Ben & Jerry’s vegan variety and Haagen Dazs to name a few.

Vegan Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies Notes:

  • Do not heat up the butter alternative before adding it to the cookie dough
  • Use a small rounded tablespoon ice cream scoop to put little balls of dough onto a silicone baking mat
  • You do not need to flatten them
  • Be sure to give each cookie space in between the others to bake properly, 2 inches at least
  • Store cookies in an airtight container to ensure maximum softness
  • Let the cookies cool before assembling into ice cream sandwiches
