These chewy chocolate cookies get a double chocolate dose with cocoa powder and unsweetened chocolate. The egg whites make them light and airy for low fat, low calorie cookies everyone will love.
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
3 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
6 large egg whites
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups packed dark brown sugar
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
3 oz unsweetened chocolate, chopped and melted
1/3 cup almonds finely chopped
Preheat oven to 350°. Line large baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, combine flours, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. In a large bowl, beat egg whites with an electric mixer until foamy, about 1 minute. Gradually beat granulated sugar into egg whites. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and beat in brown sugar until smooth, about 3 minutes. Beat in vanilla and melted chocolate.
Stir in the dry ingredients with a wooden spoon until just incorporated. Add almonds and stir to combine.
Drop batter by tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets, 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake until flat with slightly cracked tops, 10 to 12 minutes. Cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
