Flourless Chocolate Puddle Cookies

by Heidi @ Food Doodles on December 15, 2011

I need to start out with a warning.   These are SWEET.  I think I’ve gotten my tastebuds used to not having sugar very often because these were crazy sweet to me.  Which is really weird for me since I used to pretty much live off cookies 😀  I would consider reducing the sugar but then I don’t think the recipe would work.  But in a way, I love that these are really sweet and fudgy and satisfying because then I really only want one(or even half of one because they’re massive!) with a big glass of milk.  Don’t bother trying to cut the recipe down though, they freeze really well so save a few out and freeze the rest if you want.

I’ll admit, I feel a little bad going crazy with cookie recipes lately.  I know I don’t do well on a bunch of sugar, and I doubt anyone else does either.  I mainly started this blog to post healthier recipes and I wouldn’t consider these healthy even though they have no added butter or oil in it.  I even have a couple more cookie recipes I’m debating posting in the next week and a half, but I’ll see.  I really believe there should always be “treats”  but also that they should be treats and just enjoyed once in a while.  This really is the time of year for treats, so I may just post another cookie recipe before I get back to some more nutritious recipes, if that’s alright with you 😉

Absolutely! ^_-

I’m sure these are fantastic. They look so chocolate-y. My husband would be so happy if I made these. I’ll have to save this recipe for a time when I need a special treat to make him. :-)

There’s definitely nothing wrong with a cookie every now and then and these look so delicious!

In the big scheme of cookies, these are not *that* bad for you, in moderation. Ok, yes, there’s loads of sugar. But a handful of nuts are good for you and fill you up. Then, the chocolate is unsweetened… and the eggs are just the whites. Truly, I can think of way worse “treats” (like, ahem, the *really* not good for you cupcakes I posted that you commented on earlier! ha!)

Very true, the amount of sugar is what bugs me I guess, but really they aren’t that bad. I think why I’m feeling guilty is because of how fast this batch was gone! And I only shared a couple of them! Lol!

My Boyfriend would be so in love with these cookies – especially with a big glass of almond milk!

*Gushing comment alert* Your blog is AMAZING! Seriosly, your pics are gorgeous, your personality rocks, and, puddle cookies? Chocolate? You, my friend, rock.

Aw, thank you! You’re so sweet! You honestly made my day 😀

How do you think these would hold up without the nuts? They look delicious, but I have some picky eaters who are not fans of nuts. Also, I’m assuming these are considered gluten free? This might be a nice gift for my friends with gluten allergies.

I have seen another version using coconut that you can find here. I haven’t tried them but they look delicious. I don’t think you can just leave the nuts out as they are a main part of the cookie but if you can find something else to replace them with, go for it!


17 Dominique December 17, 2011 at 2:06 pm

Has anyone tried preparing this using an egg substitute? I have found one that doesn’t include any egg (duh), gluten or flax, but I haven’t used it yet and I don’t know if it would be appropriate to use in replacing egg whites. Any input welcome! I REALLY want home-baked cookies for Christmas, but when you can’t use any eggs, casein, gluten, flax or cashews (and I technically am playing it more loosely than I should with almonds), it gets complicated. Oh, cookies. I miss you so.

Is it just me or are these fabulous cookies look really shiny? I read the warning and I don’t mind that these goodies are SWEET. Sometimes, you just got to have to eat something really sweet just like your chocolate puddle cookies and experience a great deal of sugar rush.

I’ve been searching for a chocolate cookie recipe to try this season–something to balance out all the shortbread and rugelach. This sounds delish! And easy too. Thanks!
