Gluten Free Doubletree Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe for Gluten Free DoubleTree Chocolate Chip Cookies is a hit for anyone who has ever tried the famous Hilton Hotel cookies. This copycat recipe is better than the real thing and results in a chewy soft cookie. Great for anyone who has celiac or is following a gluten free diet. 


Staying in hotels is high on my list of one of my favorite things to do. I just love being in a new environment and I love the clean minimalist look and feel of nice hotel rooms.

I especially love when hotels do great things like offer a great complimentary breakfast or offer a signature chocolate chip cookie when you check in.

The DoubleTree Hilton is famous for giving out these cookies and they have become a phenomenon over the years so much so that Cookies In Space has become popular making this cookie the first one to ever be baked in space

With travel at an all time low right now due to current events, Hilton has released the official recipe for the first time ever! 

I’ve decided to put my own twist on their recipe making it gluten free friendly!

Gluten Free DoubleTree Chocolate Chip Cookie Copycat Ingredients

  • Gluten Free Flour Blend: I like using a blend of gluten free flour that has a mix of flours and also has Xanthan gum already added to the blend. You can use gluten free flour 1:1 with all-purpose flour. Using gluten free flour will result in a cookie that is slightly more dry than the original because it absorbs liquid very well. The cookies are still soft and chewy!
  • White & Brown Sugar: An even combination of these two works perfectly.
  • Rolled Oats: They give a great texture and bite to the cookies.
  • Lemon Juice: a little bit of this was spotted when the recipe release and helps the flavor of the cookies.
  • Cinnamon: a small pinch gives a hint of warming flavor. 
  • Chopped Walnuts: gives a crunchy nutty flavor to the cookies. 
  • Milk Chocolate Chips: These get wonderfully melty and make the cookies a perfect amount of chocolatey.
  • Baking Soda, Salt, Vanilla Extract, Egg: typical chocolate chip cookie ingredients.

Gluten Free Cookie Recipe Adaptation:

I changed a few things from the original recipe:

  • Swapped AP Flour for Gluten Free Flour: this makes the cookie chewy and dense and gluten free.
  • Cut The Recipe In Half: the original recipe on their website looked like it made a LOT of cookies and big ones at that, so I cut the recipe in half to make sure this wasn’t a hotel sized batch. 
  • Made Smaller Cookies: the original recipe calls for scooping cookie dough balls that are 3 tablespoons in size. I made each cookie 2 tbsp worth of dough. This makes for a smaller cookie than the original large sized DoubleTree cookie but the smaller cookies are great and still make 18-20 cookies.
