These Flourless Chocolate Cookies won't last long in your cookie jar. They're filled with chocolate chips for those dessert fans who love to savor the deep flavor of chocolate.
Naturally Gluten Free Flourless Chocolate Cookies
While there's no flour or butter in these cookies, don't mistake them for diet food. There's a fair amount of sugar and that along with the cocoa form the batter. I love them as, I don't need to even pull out a mixer to make them, and they bake in a jiffy. We still love my chocolate chocolate chunk cookies and vintage chocolate peanut butter oatmeal cookies but, this just adds another cookie to the repertoire.
Helpful Tips for Making Flourless Chocolate Cookies
- Different brands of powdered sugar use varying amounts of cornstarch. This may effect the thickness of the batter. The batter is thick and sticky by nature so, stir until the ingredients are evenly moistened.
- Once the ingredients are sifted, switch from a whisk to a large spoon or non-stick spatula to mix the batter.
- Mix and mix a little more, to be certain the chocolate chips are evenly distributed throughout the batter.
- You may use semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips in these cookies.
- Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet before attempting to move to a cooling rack so, they'll keep their shape.
