I was also amazed that there was no butter or leavening in this cookie. It definitely peeked my interest!
I called these "Nut" cookies because she suggested using walnuts or pecans, all I had on hand were peanuts, so I chopped those up and used them. I'm quite excited to see what else she shares!
Gluten Free Chocolate Nut Brownie Cookies-shared from Everything Reconsidered
3 cups powdered sugar
3/4 cup cocoa powder
4 large egg whites
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1.5 cups semi sweet choc. chips,chopped(you will want to make sure these are gf)
1.5 cups nuts, chopped
Preheat oven to 325. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
Bake for 25 mins turning half way through. You want them hard on the outside, even if they are a little undercooked that is ok, makes them even better!
**These cookies came out AMAZING! I couldn't believe how chewy they were on the inside and the crunch of the outside added to the texture! I gave one to K when he got home and he said they were great(this coming from a guy who isn't a huge fan of chocolate) I then told him there was no flour in them, he didn't believe me! BUT believe it! They were almost too sweet for me, but being that this is one of the first gf recipes I've done, I didn't want to mess with it too much. Next time I will perhaps cut down on the choc. chips and even chop them!(I did not do that today)
