What's better than a dense, rich, chewy chocolate cookie?  A dense, rich, chewy chocolate cookie that is gluten-free, low in calories, easy-to-make, and uses just 6 ingredients!  Yep, these Starbucks copycat Flourless Chocolate Cookies are pretty much perfection on a plate!Flourless Chocolate Cookies | Chocolate Cookie Recipe

A few weeks ago I was at Starbucks and, craving something sweet, I ordered a flourless chocolate cookie. It was actually my second choice–they were all out of my favorite, Cranberry Bliss Bars–and my expectations were low. After all, I am a carb-loving girl and flour has always struck me as a pretty key cookie ingredient. How good could one without flour really be?

INSANELY good, as it turns out.

Rich, dense, chewy, and chocolaty…..in other words, perfection. And, after doing a little research, I also discovered that they are not only delicious, but relatively low in calories (compared to other cookies) AND gluten free. And, as if that weren’t enough, they require just seven easy ingredients. Seriously, what more do you need? I decided it was my duty to figure out how to make them so that I could share them with you all. You know, because Starbucks is off limits this month.

You’re welcome!

 

Make these chocolate insanity cookies: sugar, salt, chocolate, eggs, vanilla and corn starch.

Here is what you need:

2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate chips (optional)

Whisk together the dry ingredients in a measuring cup.

Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, cocoa powder, cornstarch, and salt until well-blended.

Separate the egg whites and yolks for the cookies.

Step 2: Separate 2 of the eggs, saving whites in a bowl and discarding yolks. Whisk egg whites for about 30 seconds.

Whisk the remaining eggs together for these delicious and decadent chocolate cookies.

Step 3: Add remaining egg to egg whites. Whisk well, another 20-30 seconds.

Measure and add the vanilla to the egg mixture for these intense, flourless chocolate cookies.

Step 4: Add vanilla to egg mixture. Whisk well.

Create a well with a spatula and add the egg to the dry ingredients for your chocolate cookies.

Step 5: Add egg mixture to dry ingredients. Mix until blended. The dough should be fairly stiff and seem hard to mix–the eggs will not seem to mix with the dry ingredients at first. Keep mixing. If the dough seems too runny, add a little more powdered sugar and cocoa powder.

Fold in the chocolate chips to the chocolate cookie batter using a rubber spatula.

Step 6: Add chocolate chips to dough; mix until blended.

Scoop the cookie dough onto parchment using an ice cream scoop for uniform-size cookies.

Step 7: Drop spoonfuls of cookie dough onto 2 cookie sheets lined with parchment paper. If you are worried about sticking, you can spray the parchment paper with cooking spray first. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes, rotating cookie sheets once during baking.

Cool the beautiful flourless chocolate insanity cookies on a wire rack.

Step 8: Remove cookies from oven. Let cool for a minute or two on cookie sheet (not too long or they might stick), then cool completely on wire rack. Makes approximately 2 dozen cookies. (110 calories apiece)
