Giant Heart-Shaped Valentine's Day Chocolate Chip Cookies (gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free option)


  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened (use vegan butter for dairy-free option)
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups Queen Street Bakery 1-for-1 Superfood Baking Flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups chocolate chips (use vegan chocolate chips for dairy-free option)


  1. In a large bowl, cream butter, brown sugar, and vanilla extract together using a hand mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until well combined. 
  2. In a medium bowl, sift together Queen Street Bakery 1-for-1 Superfood Baking Flour, baking powder, and salt. Slowly add into butter mixture and beat until a dough forms. Fold in chocolate chips.
  3. Cover bowl with a tea towel and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to cool. Don't skip this step! This will help the cookies be extra chewy and delicious.
  4. Preheat oven to 375F. Line a baking sheet with a reusable silicone mat or parchment paper.
  5. Using a small cookie scoop, scoop 2 small scoops of cookie dough onto the baking sheet right net to each other. Using clean hands, grab a small amount of dough from the bowl (about half the size of the cookie scoop) and place it underneath the 2 touching scoops of dough. Using your clean fingers, gently press and shape the cookie dough balls together to form a heart. See GIF below instructions for example.
  6. Repeat with remaining dough leaving 2" between each heart-shaped cookie. Bake for 12-15 minutes until lightly golden and set.
  7. Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before enjoying warm, or cool completely and store in an airtight container.
