Flourless Chocolate Cookies

Love chocolate?  These are some pretty good cookies to bake – especially if you don’t want to use flour!  Next time, I’ll be drizzling some caramel over the top.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup plus 3 TBSP unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 egg whites (no need to beat like with traditional meringue)
    • For the yolks, if you are a ramen fan, store those in a container in the fridge and use the next time you make those, or anything else that you may need yolks for.
  • 1 TBSP vanilla
  • 1 bag chocolate chips (if you REALLY like chocolate chips, 2 1/2 cups)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Be sure to use non-stick spray – it will make a difference.
  2. Stir together all the ingredients except the chocolate chips. A wooden spoon would work great in this step.  Be sure that all egg whites have been added into mix – I about forgot the last one, which would explain the mix being a bit dry still.
  3. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  4. Take 2 spoons and use one to scoop the batter and the second to drop the batter onto the parchment paper.
  5. Bake until the tops are slightly cracked and glossy, which should be about 10-15 minutes depending on your oven.
  6. Cool for 2-3 minutes before moving to the cooling rack.  If you move them too soon, they’ll fall apart.  If you wait too long, they’ll tend to stick to the parchment paper – especially if you missed a spot with the non-stick spray.
  7. Store in air-tight container.  I thought I needed to put parchment paper in between the cookies, but did not need to.  Enjoy!
