Wheatless Wednesday: Gluten-Free Chocolate Cookies

April 11, 2012

These gluten-free chocolate cookies from Laura's Sweet Spot are a guiltless dessert.  Not unlike a meringue, these cookies are tender and melt in your mouth.  They also are not a calorie busting treat since they contain no fat and no flour.  The ground walnuts give the cookie body and texture while the cocoa powder provides flavor (and a boost of antioxidants).  If you are getting ready for summer, these flourless chocolate cookies allow you to have your cookie and eat it too!


3/4 cup dutch process cocoa powder
2 1/2 cups confectionery sugar
pinch of salt
2 cups walnut, finely chopped
1 Tb pure vanilla
4 large egg whites
