How to Make Gluten Free Chocolate Cookies
I’m telling you- you’re going to LOVE how easy these cookies are to make a reality. The ingredients are few and simple and so are the steps- I think you’ll agree that these are the best gluten free cookies you’ve ever had! Let’s get right into it:
Set your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and allow it to preheat fully. Meanwhile, line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Add the cocoa powder and sugar to a large bowl and whisk to combine. Add in the egg white, vanilla and salt and continue to whisk until the mixture is well incorporated and thick. Next, fold in the chocolate.
Using a cookie scoop, add lightly heaping scoops of cookie dough to your prepared pans, leaving some room in between each cookie.
Bake until the cookies are spread and set and the top looks nice and crackly. This should take about 14-15 minutes.
Allow the cookies time to cool completely on the pan, then devour!
Pro Tips for Flourless Gluten Free Chocolate Cookies
- A weigh scale in the kitchen is such a great investment- I use mine all the time! For the best results and that crackly finish and fudgy inside that make these cookies AMAZING, use a scale to weigh your cocoa powder and sugar.
- The batter you make should look thick, similar to brownie batter. If you think it feels too thick, it may be because your egg whites are small. Feel free to add a bit more egg whites if needed.
- You may be wondering why this recipe calls for powdered sugar instead of regular sugar. It may be tempting to switch out the powdered sugar but don’t do it! It’s vital to the recipe and the finished product of the cookies, as it is needed for the cookies to spread.
