Flourless Chocolate Fudge Cookie Recipe

Chocolate. Why is that word one that typically brings a smile to everyone’s face? Because it is DELICIOUS!!! I am not what you would call a chocoholic, but I do love incorporate some in my diet…daily. haha. I’m not talking about the kind that looks like chocolate, but tastes like plastic. I mean the real deal dark goodness that comes from cocoa beans. Have you ever read the story of how it came to be? We’ve studied it in our homeschool studies. So intriguing! Let me share with you this recipe a for tantalizing flourless chocolate fudge cookie. mmm…

Absolutely delicious flourless chocolate cookies that whip up in a flash. Recipe at Prodigal Pieces | prodigalpieces.com

If you’ve read any of my past recipes, you know my family and I try to stick to a diet that encourages a healthy gut. You can read more on why and get more recipes HERE. With that we typically eliminate grains from our diet, unless they are processed properly (soaking and sprouting). However, we still have pizza night every Friday where we do make our own crusts from wheat, or sunflower seeds, or cauliflower, or egg…just depends.

One of the things aside from building and creating, decorating, etc. is that I am a foodie. I love to cook and bake and create my own recipes. My family and I needed a change-up just for fun in what we prepared, so I decided to try a new cookie. Many of you saw me share these on social media and begged for the details. So…here is what I came up without using flour. ta-da!

Pile o' goodness in these flourless chocolate fudge cookies | grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free recipe at Prodigal Pieces | prodigalpieces.com

They are lightly crisp on the outside and full of fudgy goodness on the inside. A chocolate lovers dream of a chocolate cookie filled with chocolate chips. Hence, I named them flourless chocolate fudge cookie. Sounds good, right? They are similar to my peanut butter cookie recipe found in the bottom of this post. You have to check those out too – only 3 ingredients!

This recipe is just as easy. Whip up your ingredients as the recipe states and in less than 15 minutes you are done and baking takes less than 12 minutes. Can’t get much easier than that. You’ll see that I use natural ingredients with no artificial anything to keep them as healthy as can be. To make this dairy-free just be sure to source chocolate chips that are deemed so. For peanut allergies, just substitute for another nut butter.

    Is there a substitute for the sucanat? I follow the THM plan. Maybe Super Sweet or Truvia?
