Spicy Chili Chocolate Cookies (gluten-free version)

The spice in these cookies are perfect for the cold days we keep having here in NYC. Have I mentioned that this winter's been a bad one? Oh yeah. I mentioned it here, here, and here. There doesn't seem to be an end in sight.
Two weekends ago I made these cookies to share with my fellow running team mates. A group of us cheered on other runners while standing out in the cold.
See how bundled up everyone was? Yeah. It was COLD.
But the chili dark chocolate mixed with cayenne pepper and cinnamon had a nice enough kick in it to help warm up whomever ate one (which was most of us.)
So, if it's still super cold where you are and winter seems never ending, consider making these cookies. (And if it's not, send warm weather my way and keep this recipe for next fall/winter.)
I used gluten free flour for these cookies and they turned out perfectly fine. Besides that change, I followed everything else called for in the recipe. The recipe can be found here: Completely Delicious
Bake well and prosper!


  1. Hi Erika,

    You are scaring me with the bad bad bad winter that you experienced. We are starting to get autumn chill these days... so sad that our summer is gone.

    How was your run??? I actually prefer running in colder weather than warm weather... Maybe winter is not so bad after all :p Munching these delicious cookies and lots of running sounds like a no.1 comforting thing for me to do during winter :D


    1. Good luck with your 10k race!

      I can't bake chocolate cookies with spicy chilli because my chilli-hating son will protest :p

  2. Nice to find another blogger from NY! The weather today was FABULOUS. About as great as these cookies look!

  3. Mmmmh! These sound delish! Will also work in sunny Santa Barbara ;)
