Flourless Chocolate Brownie Cookies

Share Button



Last Sunday, we made two batches of cookies, one gluten free and one not:)  My boys wanted cowboy cookies (which are sooo yummy, by the way) and I tried this recipe for my boys with Celiac disease, crossing my fingers that they would be good!  I was a bit worried, because I have had some serious gluten free flops lately!  Luckily they were fantastic and everyone was happy.  In fact ALL of my boys loved these cookies, the cowboy cookies were left in a pile while these chewy gooey chocolatey treats were devoured!  I will definitely be making these again:)  I am thinking that they are healthier and have far less calories than most cookies, with no fat (other than the chocolate chips) or flour included.  I thought the recipe sounded weird, but they were wonderful!  By the way, you could sub the milk chocolate chips for semi sweet or bittersweet for a darker chocolate cookie.  Yum!

Flourless Chocolate Brownie Cookies
**These cookies are gluten-free if using gluten free chocolate chips.
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • ⅔ cup unsweetened Dutch-processed cocoa powder
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • 2-4 large egg whites, at room temperature
  • 1 Tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together powdered sugar with cocoa powder and salt. Whisk in egg whites (start w/ just two) and vanilla extract and beat just until the batter is moistened. You're looking for a brownie-like, thick and fudgy batter consistency. If it seems too thick, add another egg white-- then a 4th one if it still seems too thick. Gently stir in chocolate chips.
  3. Spoon thick fudgy batter onto cookie sheets in small mounds. Chill for 5 or so minutes to keep them from spreading when they bake.
  4. Bake for 14 minutes or until tops are glossy and lightly cracked.

    So excited to try these! I have 5 boys too. One of my boys just developed an allergy to wheat, oats, and barley. He will be so excited to have a yummy treat! Thanks! Please keep sharing your gluten free recipes!!

    These cookies look amazingly yummy and easy! Do you think the amount of sugar can be reduced without drastically changing the taste of the cookies?

    Be careful NOT TO OVERCOOK these cookies. I made them recently and accidentally left them baking too long. It is easy to do because they are so dark. When I tried the recipe again for our grandson with Celiac’s, and watched them more carefully, they were much better. I think they only baked about 12 min.
