Sugar Free Chocolate Pudding Cookies

Last year Kym over at Free Spirit Eater asked me to do a guest post on her blog for a “guilt free” dessert. I was super excited for the challenge of creating something of my own and making it healthy! It’s been a while since I shared the recipe with her readers, so I thought it would be a good time to pass it on to you guys!  

While at Target for a routine shopping trip, I happened to notice
Jello’s Sugar Free Fat Free chocolate instant pudding
mix – I thought this would be a great start: I basically just built the recipe around the pudding mix. They turned out nice and fluffy and had just the right “cakey” texture I was going for!

The first time I made these, I
tried them out on my parents and siblings who were also trying to eat
gluten free at the time and they LOVED them! My poor husband was at work while our “guests” were
enjoying these {ok, ok I may have had a few} so he didn’t get ANY! I
promised him his very own batch however, so he forgave me.

Sugar Free Chocolate Pudding Cookies
PREP TIME 5 min BAKE TIME 12-15 min

Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup [1/2 stick] butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 small box Jello band Sugar Free Fat Free Instant Chocolate Pudding mix
  • 1 1/3 cups Pamela’s Baking & Pancake mix

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350.

In medium bowl, stir together all ingredients except flour {just enough so the pudding mix won’t create a “cloud” when blending.} Next, beat the mixture on low with a hand-mixer for about 1 minute then fold in flour with spatula. The dough should be pretty thick

Using a tablespoon, scoop generous round balls {think of the measuring spoon as being the bottom 1/2 – 1/3 of your ball} on to lightly sprayed cookie sheet. These barely change their shape so don’t worry about them being too close.

Bake for 12-15 minutes {these were baked for 13.5 minutes – no I’m not crazy! This picture is actually from my second, double batch & my dad was impatient and kept checking! Sure enough, they were perfect.}

I placed ours on a cooling rack when they were done, but these are pretty much ready to eat right out of the oven!

  • These look awesome, thanks so much for the recipe! Do you think adding in oats would work at all, and would you modify the flour component for it? My husband has high cholesterol so I'm trying to find ways to incorporate more oats into our diet…

  • These look yummy!  Going to pin them as I would love to make them!

  • I don't think I would add whole oats since these are pretty cakey – the difference in texture might be a little weird. You could definitely do oat flour though! I'd probably swap 1/3 – 1/2 out with the other flour. Hope that helps 🙂

  • Those look too good!
    I'm in danger of drooling on my laptop!

    Thank you so much for sharing!
    Keep up the good work, love your blog!
