Thanks for your interest in this Course Tour—we’re happy you’re here.

The Gluten-Free Classic Cookies course outfits you with the recipes and tips to confidently bring your favorite cookies back (even if you claim that you “can’t bake”).

When you’re “gluten-free,” sometimes all you want is a cookie—one you can dunk into a glass of milk or dip into a hot mug of tea. Not one that breaks into sad, dry crumbles with each pathetic bite.

Being “gluten-free” shouldn’t feel like punishment. It shouldn’t be about cutting nutritional corners either—trying to pass off fiber-void, sawdusty, just-plain-strange cookies as healthful, or edible. It’s time to say “goodbye” to heartbreaking baking failures and money-sucking recipe experiments, and “hello” to game-changing classics like Chocolate Chunk Cookies, Florentines, and Raspberry Thumbprints!

Gluten-Free Classic Cookies is an easy, self-paced, online baking course designed for all eaters. Whether you’re gluten-free or gluten-full, this course brings new flavors, ingredients, and variety to your life with wholesome, quality ingredients.

Learning how to bake gluten-free cookies can be fun and stress-free. This course doesn’t require zoom calls or live schedules to keep up with. We’ve designed it so once live, you have access to all of recipe modules. Login and bake what you want when you want, and access the material as long as you want.

If this is your first course or recipe bundle with us, your enrollment will include 12 months of membership! If this is not your first course or recipe bundle with us, you must have an active membership to access.

A Note from Our Founder


Hello, and welcome.

I’m so happy that you’re curious about the Gluten-Free Classic Cookies course. Like me, you’re either sure (or you suspect) that you have a gluten allergy or sensitivity. Or, maybe someone you cook and bake for someone that has issues with gluten-containing foods. Or you simply want more ideas and recipes to create in the comfort of your own kitchen.

Well, let me tell you: “gluten-free” doesn’t mean that you have to stop eating cookies, or eat cardboard look-a-likes.

With the Gluten-Free Classic Cookies course, you’ll learn to make delicious cookies without weird highly processed ingredients, suspicious gums, starches, or flours. You’ll practice cookie baking with a variety of alternative flours using classic and new techniques.

Our courses have been changing lives since 2016 and I’ve been sharing gluten-free, plant-based recipes since 2009. We’re pretty much pioneers of the gluten-free baking movement, so when it comes to gluten-free cookies, you’ll never have to compromise on tradition, taste, or nutrition ever again.

The Gluten-Free Cookies Course course teaches you how to make classic cookies you can rely on—Snickerdoodles, Thumbprints, Chocolate Mint Thins—the recipes that make life special, and normal.

We’ve designed this course and the membership so everything you need to learn and find inspiration to cook and bake more good food is in one place. Reference the robust ingredient index to learn all about ingredients used, create custom shopping lists and recipe collections, learn to batch bake and turn one recipe into many with our recipe variations and ingredient substitutions.

Become a confident cook and a creative baker here—we provide ongoing inspiration and support for it all. Add more recipes to your index with extra Recipe Bundles, and add new recipes and learn new skills with our ongoing Course additions. As a member, you’ll get special discounts on all future offerings, and you can also choose how long you’d like access—cancel anytime, or extend your membership so you can learn and find inspiration for the long-term.

I know what it’s like to get started, and I know how overwhelming and exciting gluten-free baking can feel in the beginning, middle, and even when you think you’ve finally figured it all out. I know what it takes to make incredible gluten-free goodies of all kinds, and I’m forever dedicated to sharing what I’ve learned and continue to discover with you.

I don’t take it lightly that you chose to spend time reading through this course tour.

I hope you find all the answers to your Qs here, and if not, do reach out. Good Food Cooking School courses are designed to change lives. Whether you’re looking for a bright spot in your day, something to do with your kids or friends, ways to get creative, or you simply want to improve your gluten-free baking skills, I’d love to have you join our beautiful cooking and baking family if we seem like a good fit for you.

Please read through these Qs—the A to your inquiry is most likely in here. We’re a small team with big Inbox(es), so know that if you email us with a question/answer that can be found here, we’ll assume that you found your answer here and you may not hear back from us. Thanks in advance for understanding and doing your part. Have a Q that isn’t here? We’ll get back to you within 48 hours Monday–Thursday. 


What if I eat eggs/dairy?
That’s fine with us, but if you want to add more delicious gluten-free recipes that are also egg- and dairy-free to your menu rotation, this is a perfect course for you.

I’m on a sugar-free diet, will this course work for me?
No. We do call for natural sweeteners in these recipes (honey, maple syrup, Sucanat, coconut sugar). We provide alternatives that you can use whenever possible, but this course is not a good fit for you if you cannot have natural sweeteners.

Are the recipes grain-free/Paleo?
This course uses, and celebrates, a variety of whole-grain ingredients in almost every recipe and therefore may not be the best fit for our Paleo and grain-free friends.

Are the recipes vegan?
With the exception of the use of honey in a few recipes—and we provide substitutions when we can—all recipes qualify as “vegan.” No dairy. No eggs.

Do the recipes use nuts?
Yes, many recipes call for almond flour.

Do the recipes use rice?
Yes, but we can/do provide substitutions or alternatives when possible.

What if I’m busy?
We’re busy people developing the kind of course we’d want—we provide step-by-step support to make the most of your time. This course is self-paced and we have features to help organize and shop more efficiently. Remember, you also have access to the material as long as you want, so structure the baking practice in a way that fits your schedule.

If something comes up, can I still join the course without falling behind?
We’re here to take the pressure off of baking, so YES. You have access to them as long as you retain an active membership—you decide how long that is. Learn when it works for you.

Will there be homework or quizzes?
There are lesson recaps with each module. Completing them tracks your progress through the course, and it’s the only way that you officially complete the course and receive a completion certificate (which you don’t have to do). Ultimately though, you can do as much or as little as you want with the material. You get out of it what you put into it.

Is this a live course?
No. We have designed this course so there are no live components—this is so you can learn stress-free when and where it works for you. Modules release all at once. Once live, they’re yours to access as long as you want.

Will I be an expert baker if I watch all of the course videos?
Baking is a practice, much like yoga or piano. The more time and effort you put into it, the more mastery you’ll gain. This course gets you started baking gluten-free cookies, providing you with the tools and know-how you need to take off and progress on your own.

Good Food Cooking School is designed to offer continuing baking education courses for a life full of possibilities. Students can add recipes, new courses, recipe bundles, and resources to their membership, building a customized library of cooking/baking support and inspiration all in one place. The Gluten-Free Classic Cookies course is just the beginning!

How long are the videos?
All videos are no more than 20 minutes long.

Can I use My iPad/Tablet?
Yes! The entire course is designed to be user friendly, working on any device you’re using. Learn the way that’s most convenient for you, when it’s convenient for you.

Can I download the videos?
Sorry, our system doesn’t allow for the downloading of videos. Rest assured however that you can login and access your account and the course as much as you need to while your account is active.

Can I give the course as a gift?
How sweet of you, yes! You can add a gift certificate when you enroll, buy a gift certificate solo, or you can enroll on someone’s behalf.

What currency is the course price?
$USD—your financial institution(s) will handle conversions.

Does this course come with a certificate of completion?
It does! If you complete the requirements in the course, a certificate of completion will be issued.

What is your refund policy?
Due to the entirely electronic nature of the course materials and the course platform, there are no refunds.

If you aren’t sure whether Gluten-Free Classic Cookies is a good fit for you, read this entire Course Tour thoroughly—every word—and if you still have questions, email us. If you still aren’t certain that you’re ready to get baking with us, please don’t enroll unless you’re ready.

This is a fun course on a useful platform that students can build upon for years to come. Our membership site can change the way you cook and bake for life. We’re proud of it and excited about what it can do for people who want to add more delicious variety to their daily lives. We want you to feel this way too!

What & How You'll Learn


First, and perhaps most importantly, you’ll learn that gluten-free baking
can be easy and stress-free with the right recipes.

How the course works: 

13 recipe modules will be released all at once. Every module shares one step-by-step recipe and video to help you master that recipe.

You’ll learn at your own pace, taking on as much or as little as you want.

Unlike our Gluten-Free Bread Basics course which is a deep-dive into the ingredients, terms, and techniques involved with bread baking, this course gets right to the goods—instant access to a baker’s dozen classic recipes.

How the Course Works

Multiple video lessons, practice recipes, resources, extra recipes, and learning articles are released all at once.

Modules 1–13: live all at once
Bonus Recipes: live when modules go live

You set the pace for your practice.

You can watch your lessons and learn from a computer, iPad, and/or smartphone.

Each video lesson is no more than 20 minutes long so you can learn without overwhelm, the way that’s best for you and your schedule.

Use the Recipe Index and Ingredient Index to organize your favorites and help you shop like a pro as you go.

Batch cook and adjust measurements with the Measurement Converter. Use the Shopping List feature to organize and save custom shopping lists that you can reference from your phone at the store.

We know life happens. Travel, family needs, illness, late nights at work—we’ve been there. If you have to hit the pause button on the course, it will be there for you when you can come back to it. You’ll have access to the material for as long as you want it—revisit, reference, and re-learn as often as you like.

Multimedia formats: Everyone learns differently, so in addition to video lessons, you’ll have access to printable recipes and customizable recipe collections. Videos are not downloadable.

If you need support during the course: email us Monday–Thursday 10am–5pm EST. We’ll do our very best to get back to you within 48 hours. We’re a small team and we appreciate your patience and kindness.

We provide a variety of gluten-free versions of classic cookie recipes. Here’s what you can expect…

Ingredients You Need


This course is designed to show you how to use a variety of gluten-free flours, as well as egg- and gluten-replacers that create nutrient-rich, non-starchy cookies you can feel good about.

Here are some of the whole-grain flours we use in our cookies:

  • Almond flour (blanched)
  • Arrowroot
  • Brown rice
  • Sorghum
  • Oat


If you’re the type of person who can’t appreciate using more than one flour in a cookie mix, then this isn’t the course for you.

This course is about becoming acquainted with a handful of the tastiest, most versatile, whole-grain gluten-free flours available, and how they best combine to create a variety of options that don’t rely on bleach-y, blood-sugar spiking starches, highly processed flours, and suspicious egg- and gluten-replacers.

Most practice recipes call for more than one flour to create the perfect gluten-free cookie, but by design, almost all recipes in the course use different combinations of the same flours so you will use up everything you buy. Nothing is going to collect dust in your fridge or pantry.

Remember, we also built the Ingredient Index for you. 

Within every recipe you’ll find loads of tips for baking and batch baking that recipe, variations when possible, and what ingredient substitutions we recommend. We’ve set everything up for baking success!
