Gluten-Free Chocolate Nut Cookies

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes

  • 1/2 cup walnuts, lightly toasted
  • 1/2 cup hazelnuts, lightly toasted
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 oz bittersweet chocolate
  • 2 egg whites, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/8 tsp cream of tartar
  • 3/4 cup Sunsweet® Amaz!n™ Diced Prunes

In a food processor, grind the walnuts, hazelnuts and salt into a coarse meal (do not over process). Melt the chocolate in a heat-proof bowl over a pot of barely simmering water, ensuring that the bowl doesn’t touch the water. Alternatively, microwave the chocolate at half power for about 2 minutes. Cool slightly. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. In a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, whip the egg whites, sugar and cream of tartar until the whites hold stiff peaks when the whisk is removed from the bowl, about 2 minutes. Gently fold the chocolate and nuts into the egg whites until the batter is uniform, then fold in the Amaz!ns™. Using a 2 Tbsp ice cream scoop or a spoon, portion the batter onto the prepared baking sheets (Each cookie will weigh about 35 grams). Bake until firm on the outside but still soft in the center, about 12 minutes.
