Chocolate brownie cookies
These cookies taste like brownies!
Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time16 mins
Total Time31 mins
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder I used Hershey's Dark
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 large egg whites
- 1 large egg
- 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate chopped
- 3 Tablespoons cacao nibs I omitted
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, cocoa powder and salt. Add the egg whites and egg and whisk together thoroughly.
Gently fold in the chopped chocolate and cacao nibs if using.
Use a cookie scoop (or two spoons) to portion out the cookies onto the prepared baking sheets. Space them about 2 inches apart.
Bake in your preheated oven for about 14-16 minutes, or until the cookies are puffy, cracked in the middle and set on the sides. They may look slightly underdone, and that is OK.
Remove from the oven and allow them to firm up while cooling.
Cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for about 5 days.
