Chocolate Brownie Cookies (no butter, no flour)


As soon as my eye was caught by this recipe from the Bon Appétit magazine, I immediately went to the kitchen to make these cookies.

Apparently, I over-whisked my dough, so my cookies turned out more like cakes, like a chocolate macaroon on a chocolate dough base. Very attractive!

As the dough doesn’t contain any flour, this gorgeous dessert could be offered for the Passover. Therefore, if you are celebrating the Passover, certainly pay attention to this wonderful recipe. Even if you are not – still give these delicious cookies a chance to be a winner.

Chocolate Brownie Cookies


24 cookies


  • 2 cups powdered sugar (original recipe calls for 3 cups – too sweet)
  • ¾ good quality unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ – ½ tsp salt
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 egg
  • 100 g semisweet chocolate, chopped (about 1 cup)



Preheat the oven to 350 F (180 C).

In a large bowl, mix the powdered sugar, cocoa and salt.

Add the egg whites and the egg. Whisk until smooth.

Stir in the chopped chocolate.

With a cookie spoon or a table spoon, pour batter onto two parchment or silicon mat lined cookie sheets, spacing 2” apart.

Bake for 14-16 minutes, turning the cookie sheets ones, until the cookies are puffed and started cracking.

Cool the cookies on the baking sheets.

  • I love these cookies,they remind me of 4-get-me-nots.
    You can make 4-get-me-nots vanilla, but my personal favorite is chocolate.
    I can’t have gluten so thank you thank you.
