Description

Whip up a batch of these fudgy, flourless, chocolate cookies – they’re naturally gluten free, but no one will miss the flour! These cookies are .decadent and chocolatey, chewy on the inside and slightly crispy around the edges


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 cups ground almonds (also known as almond flour or almond meal)
  • 1 ¾ cups icing sugar
  • ½ cup cocoa
  • pinch salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 egg whites
  • 125g dark chocolate, cut into small chunks

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a couple of baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Put the almonds, icing sugar, cocoa, salt and baking soda in the bowl of an electric mixer.
  3. Turn the mixer on low and mix to combine. Add the egg whites, then turn the speed up to medium. Continue mixing for 3 – 4 minutes until the batter has thickened.
  4. Fold through the chocolate. The mix will be quite sticky.
  5. Use a tablespoon to place spoonfuls of batter on the trays, allowing room for the biscuits to spread while they bake.
  6. Bake for 14 – 16 minutes until the biscuits start

Notes

  • The biscuits will firm up while they’re cooling on the wire rack. Delicious and crisp on the first day, they’ll soften slightly and go fudgy on the second.
  • Store in an airtight container for maximum shelf life – if they last longer than a day that is!
  • For extra crunch and texture, try adding a handful of chopped, roasted almonds to your biscuit dough.
