This past year, Dude had a classmate who doesn't eat gluten, so was my challenge whenever I sent treats to school to find something delicious that the whole class can enjoy AND doesn’t require any special ingredients.
Also – I realize that I’m super fortunate that we attend a school where we can still bring homemade treats!
Anyhow, I wanted to bring cookies but didn’t want to buy any specialty flours, so I went on the hunt for a fabulous gluten-free cookie using everyday ingredients.
These cookies are a total sugar bomb – but hey – no gluten!
You definitely want to make these small, because they are intensely rich (but super delicious!)
So if you’re looking for a gluten-free splurge in a not so gluten free kitchen…these are the cookie for you!
Flourless Chocolate Brownie M&M Cookies (Gluten Free)
Recipe slightly adapted from Barefeet in the Kitchen
3 cups powdered sugar
¾ cup cocoa powder, sifted
1 tsp salt
2 egg whites
2/3 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
2/3 cup mini M&M candies
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Place the powdered sugar, cocoa powder, and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer. Stir to mix.
Add the eggs and stir until thoroughly mixed. Stir in the chocolate chips and M&Ms.
Line baking sheets with silicone mats or parchment paper. Scoop tablespoonfuls of batter onto the prepared baking sheet, about 2-inches apart.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the cookies are set and the tops of the cookies look cracked.
Cool on baking sheets, then remove and store in an airtight container.
