These yummy cookies dont have any flour in them - or butter! and egg whites are used as the binding agent.
Max and I made them after school one afternoon, and substituted chocolate chips for nuts - effectively negating the healthy ingredients!
CHEWY CHOCOLATE COOKIES
1 3/4 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 egg whites
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts, toasted (or chocolate chips)
Heat oven to 300F.
Mix together sugar, cocoa, cornstarch and salt. Gradually add egg whites, stirring with a spoon until mixture forms a dough (mixture should be thick enough to form into balls, if not add more powdered sugar and cocoa - I ended up adding another egg because it wasn't coming together, and then had to add extra powdered sugar - maybe if I had of used a stand mixer it might have helped it come together a little more)
Add nuts or chocolate chips, mix well.
Form dough into 15 balls. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake 16 to 18 minutes, until glossy and crackled. Cool completely.
