Flourless Chocolate Cookies

These flourless chocolate cookies are so good and they are flourless, so they are perfect for gluten free cooking.

Since going gluten free I have seen quite a few flourless cookie recipes, but many of them contain nuts or peanut butter, both of which we can no longer have.

So, I set out to adapt a recipe to be flourless without the nuts. I found several flourless chocolate cookies and tweaked the recipes to get them just right. And what I came up with was a cookie that my family loved.

There is one trick to these though and that is you must use parchment paper. Do not skip that step or your cookies will spread and become very hard and difficult to remove from your cookie sheet.  However, if you use parchment paper it works just fine.

These cookies are great just like they are, but I have also added a little coconut to these and we really liked that version also.

  1. If I am not mistaken, powdered sugar has cornstarch in it, right? Would that not be a flour of sorts? Love your site!

    • By flourless I meant the typical regular wheat flour. And usually in gluten free baking cornstarch is not considered a flour. You have rice flours, and potato flours, etc, but cornstarch is not usually considered a flour unless it is part of a blend, although it is used in place of flour. But for this specific recipe by flourless I meant the absence of wheat flour. I hope that helps.

  2. These look soo good! Hoping to substitute the sugar with my own corn-free sugar. I linked you up today & used your photo. Hoe that’s ok! If not, let me know and I’ll take the photo off. 🙂

    Love your blog!

    I was thinking gluten free cookies might make a good crust also. My daughter loves chocolate cream pie with a cookie crust, maybe these will work 🙂

    • I think they might work well for a crust if you cooked them a little longer so that they would crisp up a little. I have used other gf cookies as a crust and it worked well.
