Indulge in a yummy treat, without blowing your diet! Gluten-free flourless cookies, both fudgy and rich with less than 70 calories per cookie.

Both light and crisp at the edges, the centers are fudgy and rich like that of a brownie. At 68 calories each, these cookies are much lighter and don’t take much time at all. Simply whip these up while the oven is preheating.

Recipe Note: Most people have had better luck with 3 egg whites, while others have had success with the recipe as written. You may want to commence with 3 egg whites and only add the 4th egg white if needed.

Since these are flourless fudge cookies, the batter is not a thick cookie batter. Therefore, please take note that the cookies would be thin, with crispy edges and soft middles, ideal for individuals looking forward for a softer, chewier & gluten-free cookie with add-ins.

Ingredients

  • 3cups of Powdered Sugar
  • 3/4 cups of unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 1/4 tsp. Salt
  • 4 Large Egg Whites
  • 1 T. Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 cup Semisweet Mini Chocolate Chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Line two baking sheets with silicone baking mats. Spray mats with nonstick cooking spray. You can also line with parchment paper.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar with cocoa powder and salt.
  4. Stir in the vanilla and egg whites.
  5. Whisk just until the batter is moistened.
  6. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  7. Scoop the batter by the tablespoonful onto the baking sheets. Leave enough space between each cookie for them to spread (roughly about 2 ½ ” of space between each cookie).
  8. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the tops are glossy and lightly cracked.
  9. Let the cookies cool completely on the baking sheet, and store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
