Flourless Choc. Walnut Cookies

Flourless (gluten free) chocolate walnut cookies
low in bad fat, high in protein

2 1/2 c. walnuts (or pecans)
3 c. powdered sugar (I cut this in half and they were plenty sweet for me)
1/2 c. + 3 T. cocoa powder
1/4 t. salt
4 egg whites
1 T. vanilla (GMO free)
dark chocolate kisses or other dark choc. pieces

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Finely chop walnuts and spread in thin layer of baking sheet and bake 9 min until toasted.
Mix sugar, cocoa, salt and then stir into walnuts.
Add egg whites and vanilla.
Beat with fork or mixer until JUST mixed--not too much.
Drop batter by teaspoonful onto baking sheet.
Bake about13 minutes.
Add dark chocolate pieces while cookies are still warm.
