Chocolate lovers, this cookie is for you. It’s made with minimal ingredients and comes together quickly. The end result is a slightly crisp exterior with a molten chocolate filling.

Full disclosure, in place of flour I used powdered sugar. That means these cookies are SWEET. Adjust to your taste.

Step by Step Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line two cookie trays with parchment paper. Don’t skip this step. These cookies will stick to the tray without.
  2. Whisk together the powdered sugar, cocoa powder, and salt until there are no lumps.
  3. Whisk the egg whites and vanilla in a medium measuring cup until slightly frothy. Mix into the dry ingredients until a dough forms.
  4. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  5. Spoon heaping tablespoon full of the batter onto your lined trays, spacing 2 inches apart.
  6. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until the tops are cracked and the edges curled. Cool completely on the baking tray.

Tips and FAQ’s:

I like to think these flour-less double chocolate cookies are great as-is. However, taste testers had a split opinion. Below are some helpful tips.

  • The use of powdered sugar makes these extra sweet. Use dark chocolate or semi sweet chips to help balance the flavors.
  • Optionally, you can cut the powdered sugar to 2-3/4 cup and increase the cocoa to 3/4 cup.
  • The dough should be thinner than the classic cookie. Almost brownie consistency.
