  1. Cover a couple of baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, mix the butter with the sugar, oil and vanilla. Once it's smooth, add in the eggs and mix to blend.
  3. Add the hazelnut meal/flour, cocoa powder, gluten-free all-purpose flour, salt, xanthan gum, and baking soda. Mix until the batter is as smooth as possible and you no longer see any dry spots.
  4. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  5. Use a small cookie scoop or spoon to shape balls of dough onto the prepared baking sheets -- they should be about a tablespoon each. Drop them as close together as possible without letting them touch. Cover the baking sheets tightly with plastic wrap, and place them in the refrigerator overnight.
  6. The next day, preheat the oven to 375°F, and cover another baking sheet with parchment.

  7. Once the oven is ready, remove the baking sheets from the refrigerator and place about 1 dozen pre-shaped cookies on the new baking sheet, with about 2-inches between them. Sprinkle them with a bit of coarse sea salt.
  8. Bake in the preheated 375°F oven just until the cookies look dry, about 8 minutes. Continue this process until all of the cookies are baked, keeping the pre-shaped cookies in the refrigerator between batches.

  9. Let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes and then transfer them to a cooling rack.
