Gluten Free Vanilla Pudding Chocolate Chip Cookies

gluten-free Vanilla Pudding Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe from rays of bliss

I had seen recipes for vanilla pudding  chocolate chip cookies on Pinterest for a while.  I knew people said these were the best, most soft and chewy cookies they had ever had and I had to admit the pictures always looked good but I think most cookie pictures look really good!  Foolishly, I doubted the power of the vanilla pudding and just pinned the beautiful looking cookies along with many other recipes I never planned to actually make.  

Another, reason I  didn’t care to try the magical vanilla pudding cookie recipe is because my family  tries to eat organic and non-gmo and I figured I wouldn’t be able to find a vanilla pudding for my needs.  Guess what? I found an organic vanilla pudding!  When I saw it at the whole foods store a light bulb went off and I recalled the legend of pudding cookies.  

I used Dr. Oetker Organic Pudding Mix (Amazon Affiliate Link). Side Note: I also discovered making pudding from scratch is pretty darn easy, 3 ingredients in fact.  Who knew….not me!  I purchased organic cornstarch and will be making my own organic pudding mix.  I use this recipe for pudding; 1/2 cup white sugar, 3 tablespoons cornstarch and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.

  1. It’s been awhile since I’ve made the pudding cookies, but they were a go to recipe for me in the early gf days. They are good.

  2. I made cookies like this with normal flour before I found out I was gluten free. And I would make it with all types of puddings and different chips. They are the best and I had people always asking for the recipe. I was wondering if it was gluten free possible. Looks like it is! Yay!

  3. They look absolutely Delicious! I’ve never heard of making Chocolate Chip Cookies with Vanilla Pudding before now! I guess we don’t read the same recipes! They sound pretty good as well! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe with all of us! I really honestly do appreciate it! Thanks again, Michele 🙂

  4. These look great. And I love that they are gluten free. I have a friend who cannot eat gluten so these would be great to make for her.

    These would be great for a school treat! Sensitive to kids with allergies and still delicious!

    Got to make cookies!

  7. That’s so cool that you found organic vanilla pudding! I tend to rule out a lot of recipes because I think I won’t be able to find organic substitutes but I guess I should look harder!
