Flourless Chocolate Cookies

Flourless Chocolate Cookies - An easy recipe for flourless, no butter, no oil, gluten-free cookies. They taste like a rich and fudgy brownie!

These flourless chocolate cookies are rich, chocolaty, chewy on the inside and slightly crispy around the edges. They taste just like brownies.

You won’t believe how easy it is to make them. No mixer is required, they come together in one bowl and you probably have all the ingredients on hand.

The best part? They have no flour and no added fat. If you need the cookies to be gluten-free, check the packaging of the cocoa and chocolate chips to make sure they are gluten-free.

Warning: these cookies have no flour and no butter BUT that doesn’t mean that they are healthy, they contain a lot of sugar. Eat them in moderation! 🙂  Anyway, one cookie is pretty filling.

Let the flourless chocolate cookies cool completely before removing them from the baking sheet with a spatula as they stick to the parchment paper.

These flourless chocolate cookies are definitely a crowd pleaser and too easy not to whip up a batch right now!!

  1. I made them and they taste good, but they came out super thin. How do I make them a bit thicker/rounder? Thanks!

  2. Just made the fudgy cookies . I couldn’t wait to try them so good and it’s great as it’s gluten free. Thank you

  3. Hi Elena,

    I am sugar free and was wondering if xylitol would work? 

    Thanks so much!

    • Hi Marie!
      I have not tried these with xylitol – it sounds like a great idea but I’m not entirely sure how it will turn out. If you try, let me know how it goes!
