Gluten Free Overnight Cookies

Make these cookies at night and take them out of the oven in the morning. That's right....overnight cookies!!
If you do want a guilt-free treat this is the one to have, and they are gluten free. 

2 egg whites (preferably at room temperature)
2/3 cup sugar
pinch salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 to 1 cup chocolate chips (Less chocolate chips means less fat...just saying)
1/2 cup chopped nuts of your choice. (I used pecans)

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
2. Beat egg whites and salt with a mixer until the egg whites become foamy.
3. Add the sugar in gradually while you continue to beat the egg whites. Continue beating until the egg whites hold medium to stiff peaks (I usually go for the stiff peaks)
4. Gently fold in the chocolate chips, chopped nuts, and vanilla
5. Cover your cookie sheet (I used two) with parchment paper. Drop the batter by spoonfuls onto the cookie sheet.
6. Place the cookie sheet(s) in the oven and turn the oven off. Leave the cookies in the oven without opening the door.
7. Take the cookies out of the oven and enjoy. Store in covered tin.
NOTE: I made these cookies for my Gluten Free table at the Farmer's Market and they were always gone in the first few minutes of the day. It got to where I had to take orders. They are delicious and I know you will love them.

Makes 12-14 cookies
