Yield: 24 cookies
Calories: 90 kcal
  • 1 cup gluten free flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  1. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the gluten free flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt until combined.  Set aside.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat the oil and granulated sugar on medium-high speed until the mixture is light and fluffly, about 2 minutes. 

  3. Reduce the speed to low and add 1 egg at a time until combined.

  4. Add in the vanilla extract and beat on low speed until combined.

  5. Add the flour mixture in 2 or 3 portions, and beat on low speed after each addition until completely combined.

  6. Transfer the dough to a smaller bowl.  Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

  7. When you're ready to bake the cookies, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

  8. Place the powdered sugar in a small bowl.  Roll the dough into 1-inch balls, then roll dough balls in powdered sugar and coat completely.  Place on the prepared baking sheets at least 2 inches apart.

  9. Bake for 10 minutes.  Allow the cookies to rest on the hot cookie sheets for 2 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
