Chewy Chocolate Cookie Recipe Unlike Any You've Tried Before

posted by Rebecca Stokes 

cookie?!Sometimes, late at night, I am hit with a double-whammy of cravings. Not only do I want a cookie, I want one fresh and warm from the oven. Luckily, I keep a pretty well-stocked pantry, so this isn't usually a trial. But sometimes I have to get creative.

What to do if the only thing sure to satisfy your hunger is a chocolate cookie, and you don't have any flour? You make these delicious, chewy, chocolatey cookies that -- miracle of miracles -- don't need the stuff! Shhhh, get baking -- you can thank me later.

Double Chocolate Chewy Cookie Recipe


  • 3 cups powdered sugar              
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder                                                       
  • 2 to 4 egg whites, at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Whisk together powdered sugar, cocoa powder, and salt. Beat in two egg whites and the vanilla extract. (If it seems too thick, add another egg white or two)
  • Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Spoon batter onto the prepared baking sheets in 12 dollops per cookie sheet.
  • Bake about 14 minutes, until the tops are all crackly!
  • Cool on wire racks -- then immediately eat all of them.

late at night I'm always craving something sweet

I can't believe this! I JUST saw this recipe--almost the same exact one--in my Bon Appetite magazine last night! I was tempted to make them but am trying to lose the Christmas cookie weight! The recipe I saw called for cacao nibs--I had no idea what they were! Obviously they're not crucial. Now I REALLY want to make these! It was also mentioned that these are good for people who don't want gluten.
