I’m sorry to do this to you so early in the morning, but I just couldn’t wait any longer to tell you about these cookies!

Thanks again, Food & Wine.

Now I have one more treat in the house to avoid at breakfast time.

As soon as I saw the recipe for these Fudgy Chocolate-Walnut Cookies, I knew I had to try them.

They’re flourless!

Light, but decadent.

Fluffy, yet full of nuts and powdered sugar.


I normally don’t make many changes in baked good recipes because they’re so finicky…but I was lazy when I making these the other night so I did make one little revision.

Instead of toasting and chopping walnuts, I just used the same amount of pecan meal (finely ground pecans).

I think it worked great – the cookies are delicious and it saved me a step. But I will try these again with the walnuts.


I was seriously tempted to pop one of these on my breakfast this morning.



What’s your favorite cookie?

  1. OH my gosh… those look incredible.

  2. You can show me chocolate as early in the morning as you like! Oatmeal cookies are my favorite kind of cookies. The “Super Charge Me” cookies from Eat, Drink, & Be Vegan are probably my #1 choice.

  3. Those cookies look so good! They look like cake! Mmm.. My favorite cookies are chocolate chip cookies or peanut butter cookies.

  4. Flourless cookies can be good and can be bad..I’ve had both. But these look super!! Almost brownie like!

  5. A cookie would totally balance out some eggs ;)

  6. These sound so good!!! It’s recipes like this that make me wish I had better baking skills!

  7. Those cookies looks delicious, like flourless chocolate cake in cookie form. I stay true to oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. I am obsessed with them!

  8. These look almost cake-like – I love soft cookies!

    My favorite cookie has to be the orange/cranberry version I made last Christmas. Awesome. :)

  9. These look so soft and delicious. And totally appropriate for breakfast :) I’m a sucker for any cookie involving peanut butter!

  10. These look delicious! My favorite cookie’s chocolate PB no bakes :) They bring back so many memories.

  11. So yummy! I want them!

  12. YUM. I love the color! Almost looks like red velvet.

  13. I just wanted to tell you that your photos look much better than the actual photos on the food and wine website! I love that they are flourless.. just starred this recipe in my reader!

  14. Apple-oatmeal cookies are my fave! :)
