Christmas is right around the corner and that means it is cookie season (in my mind, anyway).  In attempts to prepare for the season, I made my boyfriend the guinea pig for a new recipe.  We are both trying to live more healthy lifestyles, so when I found a flourless cookie on Chocolate and Carrot's website, I knew that it was one that I had to try!  Although the consistency was slightly different than a typical cookie, they were surprisingly yummy, although quite rich!  I needed a big glass of milk after eating my first one!


  • 3 cups powdered sugar

  • 2/3 cup unsweetened Hershey's dark chocolate cocoa powder

  • 1/8 tsp salt

  • 2 - 4 large egg whites, at room temperature

  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract

  • 1 1/2 cups of 60% cacao chocolate chips

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F

  2. Whisk together powdered sugar, cocoa powder & saltFlourless Cookies - mixing together

  3. Whisk in vanilla and start with 2 egg whites (add additional eggs, one at a time, if it looks to thick).  The batter should look moist - like a brownie batter.  I used 4, but my batter was a bit to thin.Flourless Cookies - batter

  4. Stir in chocolate chips

  5. Place spoon fulls onto baking sheets.  I used parchment paper on mine - they spread quite a bit!Cookie batter on the baking sheet

  6. Bake for 12-14 minutes - until the tops are glossy and have small cracks in them
