Sugar-Free Cookie Recipe

June 24, 2011

PhotobucketThis cookie recipe is for lovers of both coconut and chocolate, if that isn’t you, I’m sorry, but more for me!

Since I practice mostly low carb dieting, I am always looking for low or sugar-free recipes and anything dessert or chocolate is a winner. Haystacks, or “no bake” drop cookies have always been an easy fave of mine. With a few modifications, they can be made without sugar. About.com has a whole section on Low Carb Diets, which is where I found this recipe:

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup powdered (not granulated) erythritol
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • artificial sweetener to taste (about 1/2 cup sugar equivalent)
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut
Preparation:

1) Melt the coconut oil. I use a microwave-safe bowl, and heat for 30-45 seconds. Then I mix the rest of the ingredients in the bowl.2) Whisk in the vanilla, erythritol, and then the cocoa powder. Add the rest of the artificial sweetener (I like liquid sucralose, such as Sweetzfree) to taste. The amount will depend partly on the strength of the cocoa powder.

3) With a spoon, mix in the coconut.

4) Use a small melon ball scoop, or Tablespoon measure to form cookies. If desired, garnish with a sprinkling of coconut and pat into the top.

Chill before eating. Makes 20 cookies.

Nutritional Information: Each cookie has 1 gram effective carbohydrate plus 2 grams fiber, 1 gram protein, and 85 calories.
