Chocolate Brownie Cookies


IMG_4596

Triple chocolatey, ooey-gooey, decadent and gluten free!  This is my first trip into the world of gluten free baking. I gravitated toward this recipe because I was intrigued that there’s actually no flour products of any kind. This recipe can be mixed by hand or with a standing mixer. Give it a try!

  • 3 cups powdered sugar**
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons cacao nibs

Place oven racks in lower and upper thirds of oven; preheat to 350 degrees. Whisk powdered sugar, cocoa powder and salt in a large bowl, then whisk in egg whites and egg; fold in chopped chocolate and cacao nibs. If the batter seems too dry, add another egg white. Spoon batter by the tablespoonful onto 2 parchment-lined baking sheets, spacing 2 inches apart. This is a great recipe to use non-stick silicone baking sheets (Silpat).

Bake, rotating sheets once (after 5-6 minutes), until cookies are puffed, cracked and set just around the edges, 14-16 minutes. They will look a bit underdone.

Transfer baking sheets to wire racks and let cookies cool on pan. They’ll firm up when they cool.

Cookies can be baked 3 days ahead and stored in and airtight at room temperature.

**If you have a serious allergy to gluten, the markets sell gluten-free powdered sugar. There is no gluten in powdered sugar, but it is often a cross contamination issue or the manufacture’s choice of starch has a gluten product in it.
