Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Shortbread Bites

What could be more fun than a bite size treat filled with mini chocolate chips? These little shortbread bites are gluten free, and they are perfect for serving at a party, or for snacking on all by yourself!

These little Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Shortbread Bites are super easy to make, and they are tasty, too. They have a bit of a crunch to them, even while they melt in your mouth. There are a bunch of delicious chocolate chips tossed in them, and they are super fun.

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Shortbread Bites
  • 6 Tablespoons Butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 Cup plus 2 Tablespoons White Rice Flour
  • 1/4 Cup plus 2 Tablespoons Cornstarch 
  • 1/2 teaspoon Xanthan Gum
  • 1/2 Cup Chocolate Chips (mini or regular)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Put the butter and sugar into the bowl of your mixer and beat until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the vanilla and salt to the butter mixture and beat again.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the rice flour, cornstarch and xanthan gum. Add a couple of Tablespoons of it to a small  bowl and coat the chocolate chips in it.
  5. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and beat until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  6. Line a mini muffin tin with 24 wrappers and scoop rounded half Tablespoons of dough into each, pressing down slightly.
  7. Bake for  9 to 12 minutes. It's better to under-bake them than to over bake them.
  8. Cool, remove from wrappers, and enjoy!

Hope you like them as much as I do!

  1. These are so cute! Shortbread is so good. I'm not generally a fan of "mini" things, but with these I would be tempted!

  2. I'm going to pass these on to my MIL she's recently gone gluten free and thinks everything has to taste yucky. She'll flip over these, thanks for sharing.
