Flourless Chocolate Cookies (CWF)

I had the best intentions of writing about something healthy today, like maybe roasted parsley sprigs atop rice cakes or the like, but as luck would have it, the 30th of the month is when we're supposed to post about our adventure with the current Chocolate With Francois recipe. So... it's totally not my fault that we're not quite ready to get back on track with healthy eating. (How's that for passing the buck?)

This month's recipe from Francois Payard's Chocolate Epiphany, flourless chocolate cookies, was chosen by Karen of Karen's Cookies, Cakes & More. She has the recipe posted on her blog so I won't post it here, but please check out her blog to find out how to make these delicious, brownie-like cookies.

And ya know what? If you set aside the fact that there is sugar in this recipe, the rest is relatively healthy.... no flour, no butter, no egg yolks. So I guess we'll just call this the parsley topped rice cakes of the cookie world, if only to assuage my guilt for not providing you with a healthier recipe on this Monday after Thanksgiving.

Your's look great. I would want to take a big bite out of that cookie. I have to make mine again. They did not work.

Maybe, this afternoon, I will try again.

I saw these cookies on one of the photo sites today and I remember thinking how gorgeous they looked! I have yet to try any flourless baked goods, but I think I'll have to give them a try now. They look amazing.

Mags said...

Co Irker: I already have your treats baked for this Friday but I most certainly will make these for you guys another time. I'm glad you made the suggestion because now I know you'd like them. Makes it easier for me to figure out what to bake for you!

lakegirl said...

Your cookies look so good. I need to figure out what I did wrong! I will try again.

Co Irker said...

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I can't believe how good these are considering there's NO butter.

And as far as figuring us out - we'll eat anything you bake.

Thanks again!

Mags said...

Co Irker: You're welcome. I was just happy to get them out of the house... no need for the temptation!

Megan said...

Those look so fudgy! Makes me sad I didn't have time to make these this time around... but I will be making them soon.
