Chewy Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

Here's the Dish

On the 8th Day of Christmas my True Love Gave to Me… Flour-less Chocolate Cookies that are Soft and Chewy on the Inside and Crispy on the Outside… Chewy Chocolate Peppermint Cookies!


The estimated total time to make this recipe is 20 Minutes.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper, or foil sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.


Mix together powdered sugar, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder in a bowl. Place egg whites and milk in another small bowl, and stir to combine. Mix wet and dry ingredients together, until just combined, but don’t over beat.


Using a tablespoon, scoop up cookie batter, and use a teaspoon to drop cookie batter onto prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle peppermint chips on cookies, dividing evenly between cookies.


Bake cookies for 15 minutes, and enjoy!


1 1/2 cupPowdered sugar or for sugar free option, use Ideal™ brand powdered sugar1
1/2 cup Cocoa powder
1/2 tsp Baking powder
2Egg whites
1/8 tsp Salt
1 tbs Skim milk
1/8 cup Andes™ peppermint crunch baking chips

1 Ideal is a naturally sweetened powdered sugar with zero grams of sugar! I found this in the baking aisle at my grocery store!

These look incredible! I’m intrigued by the Ideal powdered sugar option–what is it sweetened with? I need to look into this stuff!

I’m a little confused by the way you describe putting them on the baking sheet. Is each cookie teaspoon sized? Or are you just using the teaspoon to scoop the batter out of the tablespoon? Also, do you know approximately how many cookies this makes?

Yumm! If someone is using the sugar free option, I am sure these would only be 1 pp per cookie. I will have to try and find some to calculate! Looks delish!

These are amazing – I just made a batch and my husband ate four cookies right off the bat! Thanks for sharing, I really appreciate all of your flourless recipes since I can’t tolerate the fructan in wheat.
