Flourless Chocolate Cookies

A friend recently passed me this recipe for Flourless Chocolate Cookies, and she told me to try them. I am always willing to try any new flourless or gluten free recipe, especially when it comes to dessert.  She was absolutely correct when she said they were simple as can be. If you’re on a gluten-free diet or trying to watch your flour intake, these are perfect for you. Feel free to double the recipe because they go really fast. Just be sure to store them in a cool, dry place. These cookies would also be wonderful served on Passover so stash this one away for next spring.

  1. This is a great recipe and comes at a great time. I’ll be going to the grocery store later and making these this weekend. Thanks for all your wonderful and tastey ideas. It’s amazing you keep coming up with new stuff. Keep it coming.

  2. Ive made flourless choc cookies but use PB as the base to “hold” them and 1 egg and sugar. Never have I tried the only-egg whites routine and you have me convinced. These are your best looking cookies of all time I think! YUM!!

  3. I made these last night and they are yummy! I had the urge to add a bit of espresso or coffee to them. Could you do that? Didn’t want to mess with the consistency the first time around.

  4. You must have be in chocolate heaven after making these! They look fantastic, you’d never know they didn’t contain flour just by looking at them.
