As soon as I saw these chocolate cookies on The Squishy Monster I knew I had to make them myself. These cookies are a dream if you are a chocolate lover who needs to go gluten-free.
Chewy on the inside, crispy around the edges, and intensely chocolatey and rich, these deep dark, flourless (which means gluten-free), no added fat chocolate cookies are super quick, easy to mix and bake up, and are very beautiful with their shiny, crackled tops.
- Preheat the oven to 180C350F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and grease the parchment.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, cocoa powder and salt. Whisk in the egg whites and vanilla extract until the batter is smooth.
- Scoop the batter by the tablespoon full onto the prepared baking sheets. Leave enough space between each cookie for them to spread. Sprinkle with red peppercorns or sea salt. Bake for 12-14 minutes, until the tops are glossy and lightly cracked.
