Keyword: brownie cookies, dark chocolate, gluten-free
Servings: 24 servings


  • 1/2 cup unsweetened good-quality dark chocolate cocoa powder
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt
  • 4 large egg whites (at room temperature)
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt flakes (for sprinkling)


  • Preheat oven to 350° F and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix cocoa powder, powdered sugar and fine sea salt.
  • Add in egg whites and vanilla and whisk until mostly smooth but don't over-whisk.
  • Using a small cookie scoop, fill just over half full and drop onto cookie sheets, at least two inches apart as these will spread.
  • Sprinkle a few sea salt flakes on each cookie before placing in oven.
  • Bake cookies for 11-13 minutes. They are done when the sides are firm to the touch and the tops are glossy and cracked.
  • Slide the parchment paper off of the cookie sheet and then gently loosen and slide the cookies from parchment paper. Let cool.
