Flourless Fudgey Cookies

Oops Pinterest did it again... I've always wanted to try making flourless cookies, and when I found this recipe on Pinterest I decided to try it.

I was a little weirded out by the texture since it's more moist/runny than typical cookie dough. I tried not to fret since I knew the batter didn't consist of flour or butter which was a huge win to me. Cookies without flour, butter, or egg yolk was very appealing to me.


~ 3 cups of powdered sugar

~ 3/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder

~ 1/4 tsp. of salt

~ 4 egg whites (no yolks!) 

~ 1 tsp. of vanilla

~ 1/2 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips


~ Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees

~ Line a cookie sheet with a silicone baking mat (I used wax paper, and I highly advise against that... epic fail on the 1st batch!) and spray with non-stick cooking spray

~ Whisk together powdered sugar, cocoa powder, and salt. Then stir in vanilla and egg whites just until batter is moistened.

~ Stir in chocolate chips

~ Scoop batter by the teaspoonful onto baking sheet and space cookies about 2" apart. 

~ Bake for about 8-10 minutes at 350 or until the tops of the cookies are glossy and starting to crack

~ Store any leftover cookies in an airtight container

The absolute best part about these cookies (other than the chocolate of course) is that they're only 68 calories each. Hear that ladies?! -- Only 68 calories!

P.S. I'm guest posting today over at Nikki's blog while she's in Denver *jealous* hop on over and check it out :)
