When it comes to the holiday dessert table, I’m definitely team “I think we need one more”.

Especially during Passover.

As we can’t eat flour throughout the week, I’m always on the hunt for sweets and snacks to serve and nibble on after the seders are over. But nothing too taxing or complicated.

Say hello to these:

flourless chocolate cookies

It took a few tweaks of ingredients to get them just right but I can now say that they are PERFECT.

Simple ingredients (that you probably have right now!).

No special equipment.


flourless chocolate cookies

The batter is mixed by the time the oven is heated and they are a guaranteed hit.

I’m suspecting you’ll want to serve these long beyond the holiday (and even if you don’t celebrate) – and they’re a “just one more” that you can easily add anytime!

Flourless Chocolate Cookies
adapted from Bon Appetit

3 c. confectioner’s sugar
¾ c. unsweetened cocoa powder (Dutch-processed or regular)
1 t. kosher salt
3 egg whites + 1 egg, room temperature
1/2 c. mini chocolate chips (or regular; see note in instructions)

Preheat to 350°; line two baking sheets with parchment paper. In a large bowl whisk sugar, cocoa powder and salt. Whisk in egg whites and egg – batter will be VERY thick. Fold in chocolate chips (Note: if using regular sized chips do not add at this point). Spoon tablespoons of batter, 2″ apart, on your prepared  baking sheets. If using regular sized chips, sprinkle a few over the top of each round.

Bake until cookies are puffed, cracked, and set just around the edges – about 14 minutes.

Transfer baking sheets to wire racks and let cookies cool completely on pan.

    Love the recipe, but technically confectioners sugar contains cornstarch which is not kosher for Passover. Just sayin.

      You are absolutely right – I get the family “OK” on things like this before I serve/bring to the seders, but this is not for everyone!

    I need to know ASAP!!!
    Can i go without adding the chocolate chips if I’m allergic to dairy? Or will i need to change the baking time?

    • sherisilver on July 21, 2016 at 8:43 pm

      You can totally skip the chips – or use vegan/non-dairy chocolate chips! 🙂

    Any chance I was supposed to have whipped the egg whites up before adding them to the sugar/cocoa? I ended up with soup. No way these are going to bake up into anything. :/

    • sherisilver on September 14, 2017 at 2:05 pm

      Oh no! No you don’t need to whip the whites beforehand – the batter should be very thick as you’re whisking in the eggs, making it a pretty sturdy dough prior to baking!

    Can you tell me the carbs for this

    • sherisilver on October 2, 2017 at 8:01 am

      I’m sorry, I don’t know how many carbs there are!
