Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookies

I swear, flourless chocolate chip cookies can talk.

Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yes they can.

Do they ever talk to you, too?

Every time I pass a chocolate-chip cookie, it calls out to me, informing me that I want to eat it. As if I needed a reminder. Chocolate-chip cookies symbolize everything that is good in the world: love, comfort, and… gooey chocolate!

And these flourless chocolate chip cookies are even more delicious than normal cookies, because I’ve taken out the flour and replaced it with soft, chewy oats. Without all that starchy flour to weigh the cookie down, each distinct flavor really shines. The sweet chocolate chips literally do melt in your mouth!

Are there any particular foods you can’t walk by without eating?

If there’s a bag of chocolate chips open on the counter, my hand automatically reaches into it every time I pass by. But chocolate chips aren’t the only food that talks to me. Brownies, raw cashews, fudge babies, and even roast veggies all speak to me as well. I speak many languages. 😉

  1. I am like you and I can’t walk by anything chocolate! Chocolate Chip cookies, brownies or even the chocolate chip zucchini bread that I made last weekend!

  2. These cookies look AMAZING!! I might make these this afternoon…I’m definitely in a cookie mood! 😀

    Haha in that case, I can speak many languages too! DEFINITELY chocolate chips!! I keep a bag at my desk so I can munch away whilst blogging! 😛 But like you I could never turn down brownies, cashews, fudge babies, or roast veggies either!

  3. Alright! I love gluten-free cookie recipes that taste like actual cookies. 🙂

    Cannot wait to try!

    I was expecting something with garbanzo beans! Haha. I’m super excited to try this…very interesting…yum…:) I’ll make this ASAP and tell you how it goes. Sounds so easy too! 😛

    1. Haha I guess that is my trademark now! I should call myself “The Bean Blog.” But maybe no one would read… 😕

      1. Karol says:

        can you substitute coconut or maple sugar in place of Brown sugar (I am allergic to cane sugar).

        1. Yes, I bet you can! I haven’t tried it, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work.

          1. Carey says:

            We just did them with coconut sugar. Oh my yummy!!

  5. Bri says:

    I’m going to try these today! I’m always looking for good recipes for my son and husband who are gluten free. You say not to sub the brown sugar…do you think some of the white sugar could be replaced by honey? These almost sound like they would make a good breakfast cookie, but I don’t like to add any extra sugar to breakfasts 🙂 Also, how many cookies does this recipe make?

    1. I think you can definitely try! The white sugar is just for sweetness, as opposed to the brown sugar which lends a distinctive taste. So I don’t see why subbing it out would hurt. But I really am not very good with knowing how changing to a liquid sweetener will affect a recipe… I’m thinking you might need to use a little less (or omit) other liquid. If you try it, let me know how it turns out!

      1. Loretta says:

        I usually substitute white or brown sugar with Coconut Sugar and it works great!

    2. Sam says:

      You could sub the brown sugar if you were to add in some molasses, and if you used agave nectar, it would also add that carmel-ly flavor brown sugar tends to add.

    3. Lauren says:

      Hey, I made these today and instead of using white sugar I used one packet of stevia. You may want more or less depending on the type of chocolate you use. I think that honey would work well. They came out really good though! I would highly recommend adding a little vanilla…it gives it the more “traditional” chocolate chip cookie taste!

      1. Louisa says:

        I ended up using about 4-5 tsps. milk to properly bind everything together. I recommend you do this, because after making many batches, the softest, best-formed cookies were the ones that seemed just bit soupy when they were in dough form. Go for just enough liquid (4 tsps. milk/water should be fine).

  6. oohh… That’ll be cashew nuts, peanuts… any basically… any sort of nuts!! YAY! Oatmeal cookies 😀 😀 😀

  7. These look amazing!!! And yes, they are talking to me through my computer screen! 🙂
    I’ll have to try these! Thanks!

  8. Jennifer says:

    These look so, so good! I wish I could go make them right now, but rather difficult to do at school 🙁

    As for foods that I can’t help but eat, chocolate chips are definitely there as well as peanut butter! Both of those disappear from my kitchen very, very quickly!

  9. Melissa says:

    Chocolate chips and oats were made for each other. Especially in cookies. And cookie dough. 😉

  10. Oooo, my sister is expecting on Friday and I’m trying to make food for her, this will work great! 🙂

  11. Cupcake Kat says:

    These sound fantastic I\ll try them sometime. I cannot pass any nuts without taking a nibble or peanut butter without taking a spoonful

  12. yummmmm. honestly tostito chips, or any chips scream to me. I’m a salty girl at heart!

  13. Amanda says:

    I recently bought some artisana coconut butter and cannot. live. without it. OMG so good! I’m planning on making my own soon with your recipe but I have to finish the jar first so I can have a place to store the homemade stuff…oh darn :p

    1. That stuff is scary addictive!

  14. I believe that chocolate itself talks to me haha! I cannot pass up on my daily dark chocolate fix 🙂

  15. CookiePie says:

    I with you – I can’t walk by chocolate chip cookies without grabbing one! And I love the oats in here, I bet that makes them extra delicious 🙂

  16. This seems to be a common sentiment, but I’m a sucker for anything chocolate! or nutty, for that matter 🙂 I love the fact that these have oats in them, favorite kind of chocolate chip cookie ever!

  17. Michaela says:

    I am going to make this for a gluten free friend 🙂 (And for myself. Of course!)
    Hm, I can´t walk by strawberries without eating some. Also cashew nuts (just having an open bag next to me)… can´t think of anything else, but this must be bc I am not hungry right now 😉
    You should add to your “About” page that you are the girl with the ribbons 😀 I personally love it.

    1. 🙂 🙂
      I’m definitely writing that into one of my photography posts… I dunno, ribbons just make me happy! I even wear them in my hair sometimes. I am still 5 inside!

  18. I am the same way with chocolate chips! Sometimes it gets to the point that I have to hide the bag from myself! 😛

  19. Jenny says:

    I don’t doubt one bit that these are going to be delicious. Oats have such a lovely, yet subtle, natural sweetness to them!

    As is probably clear from past comments… I have a blueberry obsession. I can’t walk by my fridge without opening it to grab a handful of blueberries, if I know they’re in there. I know I should wash them first, but… meh. At least for the moment I have never suffered consequences for those actions.

    About chocolate chip cookies (or uh, chocolate chocolate chip cookies… or cinnamon cookies… or gingerbread cookies…) talking? I’ll agree with you and a few others 100%: they so can talk. If other people are around and can’t hear… then, well, they talk telepathically. Or something. 😉 Thanks for the recipe!

  20. Emma says:

    I’ve been trying to figure out for months now how to make cookies with just rolled oats. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I am so excited to make these!
