Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures: Easy Cake Mix Cookies (GF)

My name is Lynn and I started blogging at Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures in 2008 to share my love of cooking and baking with others. In the fall of 2009, I was diagnosed with gluten intolerance and my kitchen has not been the same.  In 2010, I added a special section to my site to share special recipes, tips, and ideas for the gluten free life.

The world of gluten free baking can often be challenging and time consuming, but it is something those of use dealing with food allergies and issues have to make time for.

I love to cook and bake, but the reality is I am often too busy to spend a lot of time in the kitchen making the gluten free treats my family enjoys. This is where mixes like Bob’s Red Mill are so convenient. They allow me to make gluten free treats for my family without spending a lot of time in the kitchen.

Although gluten free mixes are great on their own, I like to doctor them up a bit. This keeps the convenience of a mix, but makes it a little different.

Today’s recipe is one of my favorite ways to take a gluten free cake mix and use it in a different way. This recipe is for Cake Mix Cookies and Bob’s Red Mill gluten free cake mixes work perfectly for this.

What I love most about these cookies is how much you can change them up. You can use the gluten free vanilla cake mix and add cinnamon and raisins to it. Or you can take the vanilla mix and add dark chocolate chips or almost any other kind of chocolate to it.

If you want to try something a little different use the gluten free chocolate cake mix and add chocolate or white chocolate chips. You can even leave out the add-ins if you want a more healthy cake like cookie.

Really the possibilities for this are endless. You can change these up and make them how you like them.

The other thing I love about this recipe is that it is perfect for gluten free baking with kids. Often times gluten free baking is difficult, but by using a gluten free cake mix, it is very easy for kids to be involved in the cooking. Kids love helping in the kitchen and this recipe is a great place to start.

Easy Cake Mix Cookies Using Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Cake Mixes

  • 1 package Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Cake Mix
  • ½ cup Oil
  • 2 Eggs
  • ½ – ¾ cup Chocolate Chips, Raisins, or other add ins

Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a bowl combine the cake mix, oil, and eggs. Mix together well. The batter will be a stiff batter.

Stir in chocolate chips, raisins, or add-ins of your choice.

Scoop onto a cookie sheet and flatten slightly. (These are a fluffy cake like cookie and you want to flatten them out a bit so that they bake better.)

Bake for 12-13 minutes or until done.  Remove cookies to a wire rack to cool.

Serve and enjoy!

These are fantastic! I had to bake cookies for a bake sale fundraiser and these were a huge hit. My tasters said they wouldn’t know they weren’t “regular” cookies! Extremely easy and adaptable. I made Vanilla mix with chocolate chips, Vanilla mix with cinnamon and raisins and chocolate mix with chocolate chips. I used melted Earth Balance instead of oil.

Megan, my mom LOVED these cookies (you know who she is, I’m sure!) and she sent me this recipe. I can’t wait to try it. Thanks for bringing them to the bake sale!

Katherine Willis says:

Absolutely fab! I’ve been craving cookies and kept putting off doing more baking, but I wonder why I ever waited after trying these. We did Vanilla mix and chocolate chips. Heavenly! Very cakelike and moist. I might do something different next time add in wise.
