Flourless Fudge Cookies

Here’s a gluten free, dairy free, but NOT peanut free, melt in your mouth cookie. But don’t take my word for it…


½ cup nut butter
½ cup oil
1 ½ cups sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 ½ tsp baking powder
 ½ tsp salt
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2/3 cup cornstarch or potato starch
1 cup powdered sugar


Preheat oven to 350F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment; set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, on medium speed, beat together nut butter and oil until smooth. Add sugar; beat until smooth and creamy.

Add eggs, vanilla, baking powder, and salt; beat until combined. Reduce mixer speed to low; add cocoa. Beat to combine. Add corn starch; beat until just combined.

Use a medium cookie scoop (or a heaping tablespoon) to portion out dough. Roll into balls; then roll in powdered sugar until fully coated. Place on prepared baking sheets. Bake for 10 minutes.
