Flourless Fudge Cookies

Flourless Fudge Cookies

Yesterday I had a few spare minutes while Ephraim was napping and I decided to make a quick cookie recipe. They were some of the easiest cookies I’ve made because there are so few ingredients (no flour, no baking soda, no butter). The recipe calls for a whole tablespoon of vanilla extract, but I didn’t realize I was low on vanilla until I had already started the baking process! Because it was a dry batter, I knew I was going to need all the liquid I could get, so I substituted almond extract. My cookies ended up with a strong almond flavor—which is pretty delicious—though vanilla may have been preferred. The cookies have a smooth outer crust, and a fudgy brownie texture inside. You’ll love them!

Ingredients:

3 cups powdered sugar
3/4 cup unsweetened baking cocoa
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 egg whites
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Whisk together powdered sugar, cocoa, and salt in a large bowl until well-combined.

Mix in the egg whites and vanilla extract until all of the dry ingredients are moistened.

Stir in mini chocolate chips.

Drop by tablespoons onto parchment-paper-lined baking sheets. Leave enough space for them to spread.

Bake 8-10 minutes until they are glossy, slightly cracked, and not a darker color in the middle.

Allow them to cool completely before removing them from the baking sheet.

  1. I always love looking at your recipes, Rachel! I may have to try these. I remember you talking about soap the last time I seen you. Do you have any recommendations? We got a three ingredient goat milk soap for Noah and we really like it. It was a little expensive intially but it has lasted so long that I think it is probably cheaper than what I was buying for him. Any face cleanser you like that you've tried?
