Chewy Chocolate-Walnut Cookies
Smartpoints value per serving
What’s not to love about these chocolate cookies? They have all the delicious qualities that make them hard to resist—they’re crispy, chewy, fudgy and nutty. And as an added bonus, they’re gluten-free and can be mixed up in just one bowl! They get their texture from egg whites and their flavor from Dutch-process cocoa powder which is different than natural cocoa powder. Dutch-process cocoa powder has been treated with an alkali, which mellows its flavor and gives baked goods a very deep color. However, if you prefer a richer chocolate flavor you can use the natural variety instead and chopped peanuts make a good substitute for the walnuts.
