Fudgy Gluten-free Chocolate Crinkle Cookies. The perfect soft chocolate cookie to make for Christmas season, special events or when a cookie craving hits. 



½ cup avocado oil

1 ¼ cup granulated sugar, divided

2 eggs + 1 egg yolk

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

½ cup cocoa powder

½ teaspoon instant espresso powder (optional)

½ teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon sea salt

1 1/3 cups brown rice flour

½ cup powdered sugar


  1. In a large bowl whisk together the avocado oil and 1 cup of sugar and then add the eggs + egg yolk one at a time. Then add vanilla and whisk to combine. 
  2. Combine the cocoa powder, espresso powder, baking soda, salt and flour to a bowl and whisk to combine. Pour the dry ingredients in to the wet and mix. The batter will be thick and fudgy. 
  3. Cover and place in the refrigerator to chill for a minimum of one hour and up to one day. 
  4. Preheat oven to 350 and line the inside of a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  5. Put the remaining ¼ cup granulated sugar on a plate and the powdered sugar on another.
  6. Scoop a large tablespoon of batter out and roll into a ball. Roll the crinkle cookie in granulated sugar and then in the powdered sugar and place on the baking sheet. Space the cookies a few inches apart and repeat with remaining dough. Bake for 10-12 minutes and then move to a cooling rack. 
  7. Repeat with remaining dough
