If you have never had chocolate chewies from Whole Foods, you are totally missing out.

These are one of the most amazing cookies I have ever tasted- incredibly chocolately, chewy, a bit crunchy, and just all around fantastic.

I have wanted to make them at home for months now, but for fear of devouring each and every one within seconds, I have held back. This is also the first time I have baked cookies since December. After sufficiently gorging myself with cookie-baking, I needed a break.

A break from making them, but not eating them. I am always up for eating something that is clogging my arteries and expanding my waist.


The batter is super thick – almost like brownie batter, but even thicker.


Luckily, it is the perfect consistency for dipping a spoon in mid-mix. And eating it by the cup-full.

I have serious nibbling issues mid-bake. Please help.

(But don’t really help, because secretly I like it.)



Once these cookies came out of the oven and cooled, my husband I are were scarfing them down like hungry, hungry hippos.


They are so light and airy that you can eat 3 or 4 and still want more. Or 6 or 7. Or 18.


(In related chocolate news, I finally tried that Vosges chocolate bacon bar that so many of you have been asking me about. I figured I would be a fan since it contains the primary food group in my life – pork. It was pretty fantastic. I am a bacon hussy.)



The inside of the cookies are gooey and soft, while the outside has a crispy, flaky later reminiscent of a meringue.


Chocolate Chewy Cookies

adapted from bakespace

12 oz powdered sugar

2 oz organic cocoa

1/4 teaspoon salt

3 egg whites

1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 350.

Stir dry ingredients together in a stand mixer. Turn mixer on low and add egg whites one at a time – the batter will be very dry until the last egg white. Add vanilla and turn mixer on high for 2 minutes. This may take longer depending on your mixer, but you want a thicker batter with soft peaks.

Spoon batter onto a cook sheet. Bake for 15 minutes and let cool before removing.



See that chocolately, gooey goodness inside? Make some of these cookies today. And give them a lot of lovin’.

    Absolutely disgusting. The texture was more of a brownie texture and tasted disgusting once baked. I have made homemade cookies and brownies for a loooong time and this is by far the WORST recipe EVER. Do not make these!

    I made these tonight with my kids. We were very excited to try them. I used fresh duck egg whites, but kept the rest of the recipe exact. They smell delightful & look tasty, but they are cemented to the cookie sheets! Talk about disappointing. Ugh. :(
