A friend recently passed me this recipe for Flourless Chocolate Cookies, and she told me to try them. I am always willing to try any new flourless or gluten free recipe, especially when it comes to dessert. She was absolutely correct when she said they were simple as can be. If you’re on a gluten-free diet or trying to watch your flour intake, these are perfect for you. Feel free to double the recipe because they go really fast. Just be sure to store them in a cool, dry place. These cookies would also be wonderful served on Passover so stash this one away for next spring.
Flourless Chocolate Cookies
2 egg whites
1/2 cup granulated sugar
6 ounces semisweet or dark chocolate chips, melted and cooled
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup chopped pecans (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. Beat egg whites at medium speed with an electric mixer. Slowly add sugar until soft peaks form. Gently fold in cooled chocolate, vanilla and nuts, if desired. Stir just until blended.
3. Drop by spoonfuls on a lightly greased baking sheet 2 inches apart. Bake 10 to 12 minutes. Cool 2 minutes before transferring to a platter

I will definitely have to try these! They look perfect!
Ooh these look so good, Alison!
These look perfect, Alison!!
I'll bet these are fabulously decadent. My kids would love to find one or two of these tucked into their lunch boxes.
Ive made flourless choc cookies but use PB as the base to "hold" them and 1 egg and sugar. Never have I tried the only-egg whites routine and you have me convinced. These are your best looking cookies of all time I think! YUM!!
I made these last night and they are yummy! I had the urge to add a bit of espresso or coffee to them. Could you do that? Didn't want to mess with the consistency the first time around.
These look perfect! You wouldn't guess they're flour free!
You must have be in chocolate heaven after making these! They look fantastic, you'd never know they didn't contain flour just by looking at them.
I will definitely save this recipe for Passover next spring. I love an amazing flourless recipe!
You had me at flourless
Love flour-less chocolate cookies. They are the best just out of the oven. Nice touch with the pecans.
This is a great recipe and comes at a great time. I'll be going to the grocery store later and making these this weekend. Thanks for all your wonderful and tastey ideas. It's amazing you keep coming up with new stuff. Keep it coming.
I love flourless chocolate cookies! Did you find that the bottoms didn't "seal"? Some versions I've tried look great on top, but not on the bottom, not that it matters too much because they still tastes awesome :)
I love how these are so easy!
What a fantastic recipe - naturally gluten-free!
