You know I can’t go anywhere with only one dessert. That just isn’t my style.
So, once I made cheesecake with berry sauce for Jessica’s Passover dinner, I had to make something else. Originally I planned to make Passover brownies. They weren’t a ton of work, but the idea of separating eggs and whipping them separately just wasn’t in the cards that day. I wanted something easy.
I went through my gmail recipe folders to see what else I could make. As soon as I found this recipe I knew it was the one. A few months ago, I made these Flourless Chocolate Cookies with my mom and my family ate most of them that day. There isn’t any butter, so they are healthy, right?
These cookies are easy to make and are really delicious. The inside is chewy and fudgey, but the outside is light and crisp like a meringue.
Start with some good quality cocoa powder, confectioners’ sugar and salt
Whisk these dry ingredients together
Add in 2 egg whites
Whisk the egg whites into the dry ingredients; if the batter does not get thick and glossy like below, add one or two more egg whites as needed
Stir in semi-sweet chocolate chips
Bake the cookies on parchment paper until the top of the cookie is glossy and the outside forms cracks

Happy almost weekend! What are your plans?
The cookies looks good and rich. It is perfect for an afternoon snack.
how yummy!! wowwww hehe super short recipe too~kudos for that :)
Thanks Lauren!!!! I think this is a perfect cookie to serve anytime! I can’t wait wait to make them!! I feel like I’ve tried these truly fudge cookies not too long ago……….??? :)
No butter AND tons of chocolate anti-oxidants? Uh yeah totally healthy! They look so beautifully textured!
These cookies look amazing!
You’re description of these cookies makes them sound to die for!
I LOVE flourless chocolate cookies and used to buy them from a little bakery in Portland. These look amazing! I can’t wait to try them out. :)
Meringue like on the outside and fudgy on the inside. I want to make meringue-topped fudgy brownies now. Right now. Too bad I’m at my office.
Um, so I just got to work but now I REALLY wish I was home in the kitchen to make that!
These look absolutely fantastic! I love taking out the flour. Perfect for Passover or any day in my opinion!
Not only do these look delicious, they’re something I can make for coworkers (one is gluten-free; the other is dairy-free) … AND, it’s a way to use up leftover egg whites after making ice cream. What a WIN!
I love flourless choco cookies!!! Mmmmmm, thanks for sharing!
With my bodies distaste for gluten (shame on me) I’m always ready for some flourless recipes! And chocolate? Well, I think we know how that ends, especially when it’s mixed with finals week, graduation, and prayers for a job ;)
whoa proofread *body’s
Definitely sounds like you need some cookies!
Yum, these do look easy to make and easy to eat too, haha.
They look so appetizing that I am seriously considering making them right now… Yum!
Wonderful texture to these cookies. They call to the chocolate lover in me.
I agree no butter and no flour indicates healthiness! If it doesnt than I will dilute myself and claim it does
Okay…I am definitely making these over the weekend. They look amazing!!!
Those cookies look so good. I love flourless cake, so I am absolutely sure I would devour cookies like this. What a treat!
Here we go again, Lauren! This really did make my mouth water like a hippo! My gosh! I love the crusting on top–which I really crave for on cookies! Will try!
Thanks, Rylan Ty!
I hope I can remember these for Passover next year, they look so amazing, I might just have to make them now.
They are worth it! I actually made another batch with my mom today:-)
These look like they have an amazing texture. I’m printing this off right now. Yum!
oh those cookies look so fudgy and perfect!
I love making flourless coookies – but I’ve never used just egg whites before! Must.try.soon. They look delicious!
aren’t these awesome? have you tried flourless choco cake? you MUST! with a nice raspberry coulis!
Yum – those look absolutely amazing and decadent!
I’m all over this cookie!
This looks like everything you could want in a cookie. Yum!
Man, those look tasty. I think I’ve made something similar for Passover one year but they had walnuts instead of choco chips. YUM!
These cookies look absolutely delightful! A real chocoholics dream! :)
Oh man….these looks soo good I could reach right through my screen. I love flourless chocolate cake. And since they are grain free that would mean lower in carbs. I’m doing a 2 week low carb experiment. Of course that means I can’t have sugar right now, but these look like a promising option once I start adding carbs back in. So glad you shared!!
You should check out Caroline’s blog! She did a low carb version: http://dreamaboutfood.blogspot.com/2011/05/moonscape-chocolate-cookies-low-carb.html They look different but she said they tasted good!
These will be good for me. I have just checking the blogs of my foodie friends so found your flour less chocolate cookies. I would love if you come by sometime and share your thoughts on http://simpleglutenfreekitchen.blogspot.com/
