Gluten-Free Dairy-Free-ified Compost Cookies

Updated: Mar 4

Come along & listen to my thought process as we try to gluten-free & dairy-free-ify another recipe! This time it’s Lynja’s* Compost Cookies from the Nick DiGiovanni Knife Drop cookbook.

We’re trying out some fun new goodies too as mix-ins: I found some slightly “cleaner” candy-coated df/vegan chocolate chips to use as M&Ms, as well as naturally coloured gf cornstarch-free sprinkles from Pure Foods. (Though I wasn’t a huge fan of the crunchy-ness of the candy-coated choc chips in these cookies, they did taste good, and we’ll try them in something else - or maybe even just as an ice cream sundae topping?!?!) ;)

*Also if you like cooking channels & recipes, go check out the “Cooking With Lynja” YouTube channel. She had such a fun channel, and always made us smile.


150g gluten free flour blend (we use a mix of sorghum, millet flour & tapioca flour but you could use your fav gf blend too like Bob's Red Mill

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup coconut oil, softened (

1/2 cup coconut sugar (we like Yupik Coconut Sugar

1/4 cup cane sugar (blendered if coarse)

1 egg (or try a flax egg!) (

1/2 tsp vanilla

3/4c total mix-ins (a mix of sweet: choc chips, sprinkles, toffee bits, etc, and some salty mix-ins: potato chips, salted nuts, pretzels )

Looking for a mixer? We LOVE everything Kitchenaid. They are super high quality and last forever (I still have my stand mixer from 14+ years ago!). We have all 3 mixers (I’m a bit obsessed with Kitchenaid…) for different uses, but if you're just starting out, a hand mixer or Artisan Stand Mixer are very versatile and will get you started!!

Artisan 5Qt Stand Mixer:

Heavy Duty 7Qt Stand Mixer:

Fav Cookie Scoops: (I love these ones because they don't get water stuck in them when you wash them like the 2-piece scoops - which then drips out into your next recipe - gross!)
