Fudgy Flourless Crinkle Brownie Cookies with no oil or butter! And because they’re made from ground almond flour instead of flour, they’re gluten-free too. What – no oil or butter in a sticky dessert ?! Trust me you won’t miss it! These flour-free chocolate crinkle cookies are also gluten-free as they are made with almond flour instead of all-purpose flour.

Fudgy Flourless Crinkle Brownie Biscuits with Sea Salt

These chocolate crinkle cookies are topped with a pinch of flaky sea salt to balance out the sweetness. You can keep these cookies on the counter for up to four days or in the refrigerator for seven days, but I doubt they’ll last that long!

How do you make flour-free crinkle cookies from scratch?

Mix egg white, sugar and vanilla with a mixer until frothy. In another bowl, whisk together the almond flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder. Stir in the egg mixture and fold in the chocolate chips. Divide the dough into two balls, wrap in plastic and store in the refrigerator for a few hours. Once they’re chilled, start with a ball of dough and roll the dough into 1-ounce balls. The dough will become sticky, it will help moisten the palms of your hands. Press lightly on a baking sheet and sprinkle with flaky salt. Bake for 10-11 minutes – do not bake! You let the cookies cool for about 15 minutes on the baking sheet, where they continue to bake.

Why are my crinkle cookies flat?

Your crinkle cookies can be flat if you don’t refrigerate the batter. I recommend chilling for two or three hours, or as long as overnight. Cooling the dough also makes it less sticky and easier to work with.
