Original post… 

If you love chocolate, these cookies are for you!

A little crisp on the outside, chewy, fudgy, crispy and super chocolatey on the inside!

They taste rich and decadent but happen to be naturally gluten-free, dairy-free and butter-free!

AND…. then only take 10 minutes to prep and 10-12 minutes to bake!

So a little background…

We’ve been enjoying these cookies for years because a friend makes them for us on the regular and we devour them! Not sure why I never shared them here except that they’ve always been a treat someone made for us, not one we made…

This year, we decided to make ice cream sandwiches with  Homemade Strawberry Ice Cream to welcome Summer and immediately thought these cookies would be the perfect pairing.

And they did not disappoint!

Gluten-Free Ice Cream Sandwich flourless uber-chocolatey cookies #glutenfree #grainfree www.healthygffamily.com

Made another batch of cookies today because we had extra ice cream and because these cookies are just so yummy!

They are made with minimal ingredients:

powdered sugar

unsweetened cocoa powder




vanilla extract

dark chocolate chips.

They only take 10 minutes to prep and 10-12 minutes to bake!

All you do is whisk together the dry ingredients.

Switch to the paddle attachment and add the wet ingredients and fold in the chocolate chips!

The batter will be thick and fudgy.

Spoon the batter onto a prepared baking sheet, then using a cookie cutter and/ or your hands shape them into circles.

Bake for 10-12 minutes… and you have the fudgy-est, chocolatey-est and yummiest cookies!

Let cool on the pan for 10 minutes or so… they will continue baking and set so that they hold together well when you take off the baking sheet.

Hope you love them as much as we do!

And for a fun summer treat, use them to make homemade ice cream sandwiches with your favorite ice cream!

Sprinkles optional but definitely fun!

Flourless Chocolate Cookies

  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder gluten-free
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large egg whites preferably room temperature
  • 1 large egg preferably room temperature, lightly whisked
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips


Flourless Chocolate Cookies

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, cocoa powder, cornstarch and salt. ( I used the whisk attachment of a stand mixer)
  • Add egg whites, egg and vanilla and mix until well combined. (using the paddle attachment of a stand mixer). Batter will be very thick.
  • Fold in chocolate chips. Batter will be very thick.
  • Drop dough by the spoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets (about 6 cookies per baking sheet), spacing cookies approximately 2 inches apart as they will spread. If you want perfect circles, dampen your hands with water and gently press down and form circles. The cookies will spread in that shape.
  • Bake 10-12 minutes or until puffed and crackled. Ideally bake on middle rack.
  • Let cool. Then remove from pan by lifting cookie and peeling back parchment paper.
  • Stores well in airtight container, at room temperature for several days.

    These cookies are absolutely amazing!!! They are so rich and fudgy! I threw in some dried cherries for half of the cookies as well because I just love the chocolate and cherry flavor profile! They are amazing both ways! They are so delicious! I just love them! I also think walnuts would be an awesome add in as well! These flourless uber-chocolatey cookies remind me so much of a brownie, so I would bet walnuts would compliment them too! Thank you so much for such an awesome and simple recipe. This is a ten star recipe!!!!

    I make these for my son who loves cookies but is allerg6to wheat. I omit the almond flour ( he can’t eat nuts either). I use 4 egg whites and no whole egg. But they are just as yymmy.

  3. I have a egg allergy along with dairy and gluten. Has anyone tried making these with an egg replacement? If so how did they turn out and what egg replacement did you use?

    1. You can also substitute the egg for chia seeds.
      2 tablespoons of chia for 1/4 cup of warm water

      Blend in a coffe grinder machine if possible the chia then mix with the water and let it sit for about 5 minutes or until hardening.
      This amount it’s the equivalent of a hole big egg.

      Hope it helps

    These look phenomenal! 😀 I can’t wait to make them, definitely going to have to hide them from my hubby or he’ll eat them all!!

    After drooling over the posts, I had to make and lucky me, everything was already in my pantry! So quick and as good as everyone says. My kids are one bite and said, “can you make these again?” So good for gf!!

  6. Thank you for this great recipe. I am new to GF and these were a welcome treat. The whole family loved them and my mother in law even asked for the recipe. They were easy to make and took no time to bake. I can see many batches being made in the future. Can’t wait to try the blueberry crumble next!

  7. I made these and they did not turn out! They taste delicious but ended up spreading and turning into one big chocolate blob. My family crumbled it and ate it over ice cream, so all is well 🙂 I wonder what I missed. Any tips?

    Made these a couple of weeks ago and LOVED them!! They’re like brownies but cookie shaped. I used extra dark chocolate pieces in mine and they were so so rich and yummy 🙂

    These were so simple to make and are OFFICIALLY our new favorite cookie in the house! Can’t wait to make them again.

    Made these last night – they were sooo goood, and I’m usually not a chocolate-on-chocolate fan! I used semi-sweet chips (all we had in the house at 9pm, hah!) and they worked great. Next time I will try to make them a bit smaller – I ended up with 10 cookies but they took a long time to bake through (probably close to 30 mins). For others who try this recipe: make sure to bake until the tops look dry!

    My Grandma and I made these cookies and they where so good. The only thing is we let them cool for about an hour and when we took them off of the parchment paper some of them fell apart. This website has saved my family from not eating gluten sweets. Thanks for all the great recipes!

  12. Looks amazing! Just wondering could the batter be put in a small brownie pan and bake in one pan?

    1. That’s an interesting idea! They really are like brownie cookies! You could try it but I am uncertain of cooking time, you’d have to watch it and if the top is done before the center, cover loosely with foil and keep baking. Let me know if you try it!

  13. 4 stars
    Hi i just tried these cookies and amazing, the only thing i used 1 cup of sugar instead.
    still pretty gook will make again

  14. I’d really like to try these but need them to be egg free due to allergy. What egg replacement would you recommend?
