These flourless cookie bites from Sunset reader Jennifer Loganathan, of Colden, NY, are a delicious cross between a brownie and a soft cookie—the orange zest adds a bit of contrast.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a 12-cup muffin pan and set aside.

Step 2

Stir together almonds, powdered sugar, cocoa, orange zest, 3 tbsp. butter, 1 egg white, and 1 tbsp. water in a medium bowl. In another bowl, whisk remaining egg white with granulated sugar until medium peaks form; fold into cocoa mixture. Spoon mixture into prepared muffin cups, dividing evenly.

Step 3

Bake until tops look dry, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes, then turn out of pan.

Step 4

Meanwhile, microwave remaining 1 tbsp. butter with chocolate in a small bowl until melted. Drizzle over warm cookies.

For a flourless option, this is easy, quick, and tasty. The butter should be very softened. For the cookie mix part, I guess it shouldn't be melted but room temp butter is not soft enough for mixing.

These were so easy and very delicious! Not only was my gluten free daughter delighted but so were the rest of us. This is an excellent recipe whether or not you avoid gluten.
