Gluten Free M&M Cookies

by: claire cary

These gluten free m and m cookies are soft, chewy and so easy to make. They have a rich buttery flavor, are made in one bowl and studded with lots of m&ms!

Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 15 mins
Chill Time 1 hr
Total: 1 hr 25 mins



  • ½ cup softened butter dairy free or regular
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg


  • 1 ½ cups gluten free all purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup mini m&ms


  • Add the softened butter to a mixing bowl or bowl of a stand mixer and beat with both sugars for about 1 full minute.
  • Add in the egg and vanilla and beat until well combined.
  • Spoon and level the flour to measure, then add to the bowl with the baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Beat until well combined.
  • Fold in the m&ms.
  • Place in the fridge to chill for 1 hour.
  • After about 45 minutes, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Scoop the dough using a 2 tablespoon scoop and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake for 13-18 minutes or until the edges are just golden brown. They will continue to harden as they cool.
  • As soon as you remove them from the oven, take a round cookie cutter and swivel it around the edges to shape it into a perfect circle. This is optional, but helps make them look nice!
  • Let cool completely, then transfer to a wire rack and enjoy!
