25 Fabulous Flourless Cookies ~ these delicious gluten free cookies are so good you won't miss the flour one bit! ~ theviewfromgreatisland.com

Flourless cookies have completely run away with my heart.  I made my first batch a couple of years ago, and I’ve been happily experimenting ever since. Let me say right from the start that these cookies aren’t just a gluten free work-around for people who can’t eat regular flour,…they are fabulous all in themselves.  I’ve said it before, but I often actually prefer them to ‘normal’ cookies.  They have a great soft chewy texture, tons of flavor, and they give me a real protein packed boost of energy.  I feel good about eating them, which just makes me enjoy them all the more.  I’ve gathered together 25 of my favorites from fellow bloggers, so if you’re interested in experimenting with the concept yourself, you’ve got the best of the best right here.  Many of the recipes rely on nut butters as a base, and contain no flour or butter at all.  Others have got a little bit of oat, or nut ‘flour’ to bind the dough.  If you are a visual recipe hunter like I am, this will be a feast for your eyes — all are gluten free and delicious, so go have fun!

    I stumbled upon this list and got so excited by the gorgeous photos and the gluten-free variety. My goal is to try every single recipe, so as of today, 1 down and 24 to go! I decided to start at the end of the list only because I’m a total chocolate and rocky road addict. I followed the recipe to a ’T’ and was worried about the comments that mentioned big, sticky, runny messes. This did not happen in my case. In fact, I baked them for 12 minutes and they mostly look like the picture and were tasty and the soft melty/crispy combination was nice. I won’t say delicious because they were over the top too sweet. My family agreed. Secondly, I did use a very small scoop and they do indeed expand so I’m glad I left plenty room between them. Finally, 4-5 mini marshmallows are too much for the small scoop even if the batter expands. The marshmallows also expanded and they didn’t really look cute anymore as the marshmallows did not keep their shape. They looked like a cookie with a light dirty brown marshmallow icing. With half of the batter remaining I decided to mix some marshmallows straight into the batter and that proved to be a big mistake. They expanded even more and didn’t really enhance the flavor or the look. Glad I tried these but they were definitely not impressive enough to try again.

    Is thete a way I could substitute eggs for these? I have a love one with an egg allergy.

      I’m not sure which cookies you are taking about Brandi, but I know a lot of them rely on eggs to bind them. Maybe another reader will have an answer for you, and I’ll check into it and get back to you here…

    I am gluten-free and at altitude so find cookies some of the trickier things to make! I love flour-free cookies as it takes most of the concern out of it (there can be other ingredients that add gluten but it is more rare). Definitely will be saving this Sue!

    What a beautiful blog post, and they are definitely “A Feast for the Eyes” (nice name, huh?). I’ve never made flourless cookies, but these beauties are all good starting points. Guilt-free cookies that taste good? I’m in!
