Flourless Double Chocolate Chip Cookies


Yesterday seemed to pass in a flash! Before I knew it, it was 5:00 – where did the day go?! Then I started watching the Superbowl, and minutes passed like hours, but then again I also referred to this superbowl as the who-cares-bowl (sorry Packers and Steelers fans!!)

Anyway, after I finished posting, I stepped into the kitchen with one goal in mind: produce some delicious chocolate chip cookies that those who are gluten-free, like my BFF Kim, can enjoy.


I was also out of flour, so it only seemed appropriate.

So I did some research on what to use when making cookies without flour. I’d only done this one other time before, but those cookies involved almond butter, and I wanted the main focus of these cookies to be chocolate, chocolate, chocolate!


The answer? Egg whites! They make your pre-baked cookies look like this…


But then when you pop them in the oven, something magical happens and they turn out like this!


Although it took me two attempts to get a good batch of cookies (the first batch was an epic disaster,) it was definitely worth it!

Flourless Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

adapted from Epicurious

4 egg whites

1/2 tsp salt

3/4 c. confectioner’s sugar

1 scant c. dutch pressed cocoa powder

1 tsp vanilla extract

3/4 c. dark chocolate chips

1/4 c. unsweetened coconut

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl, mix together the sugar, cocoa powder, and salt. Add the egg whites, one by one, continuing to beat the mixture with an electric mixer until the batter thickens slightly. The dough will somewhat resemble a mousse. Add chocolate chips and coconut and mix some more. Drop tablespoon size “balls” onto a parchment lined baking sheet, and bake for 10-12 minutes.



This time spent in the kitchen yesterday definitely doubled as therapy 😉 And I didn’t stop here! Another gluten-free product was produced (one of my faves!) but we’ll save that one for later :)

How does your day look today? Anything you’re to which you’re looking forward?? Other than training a few clients, tonight’s my last volleyball game of the winter season!! I’m sad to have to stop playing again, but excited to have my Monday nights back… :)

Have a great day, friends!

  1. Well… got my run in, so the rest of the day is sort of focused on catching up with all the things I sort of “skipped over” on the weekend… oops! I hate playing catch-up…

  2. I have no work again today because our roofs are compromised on the schools. It’s getting really crazy! I think I’ll run and shop to pass the time.

  3. those look SO good! they look super airy and light – I think that cancels out the chocolate, right? :)

  4. These looks awesome, Paige. Way to stick with it! When I have an epic fail in the kitchen, it usually makes me want to quit (at least for awhile:)!

    Today I’m looking forward to a doctor’s appointment. Strange I know, but I’m really hoping to get some answers to questions I’ve had for awhile now!

  5. Good perseverance! I usually give up if my first batch goes south.

  6. Today’s going to be a long one, but I’m looking forward to seeing what it brings :)

    Those cookies look incredible!

  7. you just made my day with these. Starring the recipe now! Gluten free yea!

  8. That’s ok about the “who cares super bowl” comment. I never cared or watched in previous years either. I guess the only people who really care are the die hard football fans or the fans from those states that were playing.

    Those cookies look yummy!

    I am looking forward to a vacation in Florida this week–in fact, it’s all I can think about while I am at work today. Can’t wait to get away from work (and the snow) and spend quality time with my husband in a beautiful and warm place.

  9. YUmmmmmm, cookies :) I could probably eat about 5 or 10 of them, we are currently dessert-less in our home :(

    I hope you have a great last volleyball game! Enjoy it :)

  10. Pretty normal Monday for me: kids in school, workout, cook, sleep. :)

  11. Yuuuum!! Those look so good, Paige! I will have to try them!
