cocoa crunch breakfast cereal

Adapted from: http://carolinesketokitchen.blogspot.com/2016/05/low-carb-cocoa-puffs.html

 

Serving Size: 1 medium cookie

Yield: 9 servings 

 

 

 

BASE:

 

SWEETENER:

 

FLAVORINGS:

  • 1/4 tsp (1g) salt (omit if using salted butter, cream cheese, or salted nut butter) 

  • 1 tsp (5ml) vanilla extract

 

CRUNCHIES:

  • 1 + 1/4 cup (70g) shredded coconut / OR flaked almonds

  • 1/4 cup (30g) chopped nuts or seeds / OR more shredded coconut

 

 

 

 

1. Preheat the oven to 300F / ...C. Sift together all dry ingredients in a large bowl.

 

2. In a VERY clean medium bowl, whip the egg whites to soft peaks, then mix in the liquid stevia.

 

3. NMix 1/4 of the whipped egg white mixture into the dry ingredients, it will be very thick and so it's best to use a spatula to mix instead of a whisk. Once fully combined, mix in the melted fat. Next, gently mix in a few spoonfuls more of the whipped egg whites until the mixture in loose enough to fold, then FOLD in the remaining egg whites until well combined, trying to keep as many of the air bubbles intact as possible. (This will give you a crispier, lighter crunch in the final product.)

 

4. Scoop the mixture gently into a piping bag, squeeze bottle (with relatively wide nozzle), or into a zip-top plastic bag with one corner cut open. Pipe small EVENLY-SIZED spheres (blobs, realistically) onto a non-stick baking mat or baking paper, leaving an equal amount of space between each blob.

 

5. Bake for 15 minutes, rotate the pan 180 degrees, then bake for another 15 minutes, or until the cereal has dried out completely and is crunchy when eaten (should not be chewy). Cool fully before storing in an air-tight container.

ABOUT TPH

When you're as obsessed with sweets as I am, skipping dessert is not an option, but all the "sugar-free" treats I find in stores/restaurants never quite taste like dessert. After discovering that GOOD low-carb dessert recipes are so hard to find, I started experimenting and creating my own. TPH exists so that diabetics, carb-resistant people like me, and anyone else looking to avoid sugar can enjoy truly decadent desserts that won't cause insulin resistance or tooth decay.
