Chocolate Brownie Macaroons

If you take a look through the recipes on my website, it's no secret I love chocolate!  I could be considered a dark chocolate "chocoholic", and have a couple of squares of 85%, fair-trade, organic, antioxidant rich decadence daily.  While looking at a pile of cookie recipes and trying to decide what to make an idea evolved for these macaroons.  Yum!  I have made them twice and they are delish...

Chocolate Brownie Macaroons - GF

  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/3 cup sugar of your choice (I used organic cane sugar)
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 2/3 cup almond meal
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips or chocolate chopped small
  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Beat the egg whites and salt till stiff peaks form.  Add sugar and vanilla to the mixture, beating until shiny and stiff, but not dry.
  3. Gently mix in the almond meal, cocoa and chocolate (I do this with the mixer, slowing it down to stir).  Alternately, you can fold these ingredients in.
  4. When mixed,  drop batter from a teaspoon onto the parchment paper.  I use a 1" scoop to make little balls.
  5. Bake these little lovelies at 350F for 10 minutes.  Turn the oven off and leave the cookies in the oven for 10 more minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven and cool.
