Gluten Free Chocolate Cookies from Absolutely Not Martha

I’m not much of a Valentine’s Day gal. For one thing, gift-giving is not my sweetie’s forte. And frankly, let’s face it: Valentine’s Day will never be as fun as it was when you were nine and got to make a Valentine mailbox out of a paper bag and sparkly stickers. My one concession to the holiday is molding my usual baked treats into vague heart shapes.

Lumpiness aside, these cookies are awesome! The recipe comes to us via Jackie at Absolutely Not Martha. True to Jackie’s credo, they are gluten free and proud of it! They contain no butter or flour, relying instead on a gooey meringue for their chewy texture. The cookies develop craggy, molten crevices of chocolate as they bake; the result is like the love child of a marshmallow and a brownie, which sounds to me like the happiest Valentine’s Day of all!

Find the recipe here, and be sure to check in with Jackie at Absolutely Not Martha for more fab gluten free eats and a luscious style fix to boot! Now I’m off to eat some more of these to console myself with the news that Shabby Chic has filed for bankruptcy and Craft Magazine is going out of print…

    Mmmmmmm…marshmallow texture and brownie taste sounds like a combination made in heaven. V-day for me is all about the cards and the treats, just like when I was nine. As a romantic holiday, I think it holds serious potential for big set ups and disappointments.

    I found the yummiest gluten free chocolate cookies at the Berkely farmer’s market. These look like they may be really close. I’m gonna have to give them a try.
    And I love that you’re making things into vague hearts. I’ll be doing the same thing tonight with rice krispy treats for my father-in-law. 🙂

    Whatever. You know you like Valentine’s Day…especially when Jack’s mom sends you a box of goodies. I am sorry that I didn’t attach any sparkling stickers. We only have animals sticker right now. Roar.
