Sin-Free Chocolate Chews

READY IN: 3hrs 27mins
Recipe by GourmetChris

Utterly flourless, simply gluten-free, almost fat-free, and absolutely delicious. The egg whites give these cookies a lovely chewy texture, and cocoa powder packs a serious punch. From the King Arthur Flour web site, slightly modified.

Top Review by The Gluten Free Pri

These cookies were a hit a Labor Day cook-out. I searched (at the last minute) for a gluten-free, cholesterol-free dessert to bring to the cook-out to accomodate all dietary restrictions. Thanks GourmetChris for posting this recipe. The cookies were very tasty. They are chewy, but not too chewy and they pack a powerful punch of chocolate. All the women asked for the recipe. I love the fact that they are gluten-free and cholesterol-free!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Whisk together the sugar, salt, and cocoa.
  2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, stir together the egg whites and vanilla.
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the egg whites, and mix at low speed of an electric mixer for 2 minutes. The batter will seem dry at first, but will become shiny and smooth as it mixes.
  4. Cover the bowl, and refrigerate the batter for 3 hours, or up to overnight.
  5. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  6. Grease (or line with parchment paper) two cookie sheets.
  7. Gently stir in chocolate chips, if using.
  8. Drop by ping-pong-sized balls onto cookie sheets.
  9. Bake for 12 minutes, reversing baking sheets (top/bottom) once during cooking.
  10. Cool 5 minutes in pans before transferring to wire rack.
