have you tried the flourless chocolate cookies at starbucks yet? they are to die and i’ve bought more than my fair share lately so i figured it was time to try a homemade version. plus there is a budding baker around our home these days (named tilly) and although we’re reaping the benefits i’m always on the lookout for easy recipes with a healthier twist. now if only there was away to make them sugarless too!
(recipe details below.)
makes 2 dozen, 15 minutes Prep Time, 15 minutes Cook Time (adapted from recipe girl)
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- 2/3 cup cocoa powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 to 4 egg whites, at room temperature
- 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup semi, milk or bittersweet chocolate chips
preheat oven to 350 degrees. line two rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper and spray (lightly) with nonstick cooking spray…. the cookies are super delicate so this will help them stay in one piece.
in a large bowl, combine the powdered sugar, cocoa powder, and salt. whisk in two egg whites and the vanilla until the batter is moist bust still thick like brownie batter. if too thick, add another egg white or two – one at a time. fold in chocolate chips.
scoop batter onto the prepared baking sheets and bake about 14 minutes (check after 12), until the tops are lightly cracked. slide the parchment paper onto wire racks and let cool completely.
now go check your pantry for missing ingredients and head to the store or just pop into starbucks and start your weekend on a sweet note!
