Sweet Healthy Chocolate Topped Cookies

Updated on October 5, 2014

I Love Cookies

I have a sweet tooth and I love Cookies. I've always loved Cookies. So when I found out I was diabetic, I just had to find a way to make sweet cookies without sugar, honey, molasses, rice syrup, maple syrup, etc. I didn't want to use artificial sweeteners like saccharin, aspartame, or sucralose or "sugar alcohols" like sorbital or maltitol and xylitol didn't work for me (when I eat xylitol, and too much of other sugar alcohols, I get lesions in my mouth, but I digress).

Enter Stevia. My medical practitioner recommended stevia. I read about stevia in several of the health newsletters I read and a few of the books I was reading. Stevia comes from a tea and is manufactured in South America. It's quite sweet and, while I've been through many types, I found a powder that I use more than most right now. But you'll have to find your own stevia and figure out how much of it you need (that's why in the recipe I say "equivalent to so-and-so quantity of sugar").

Vegan Cookies?

I've been a vegan for many years and I've developed a number of recipes for cookies. This is one of my favorites.

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 3 hours
Ready in: 3 hours 15 min
Yields: Makes 16 cookies

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Almond Flour
  • 1/2 cup Sorghum Flour
  • 1/2 cup Almond "milk", (unsweetened original or vanilla)
  • 1/2 cup Peanut butter or nut butter
  • Stevia equivalent to 1 cup sugar (or to taste)
  • 1/8 teaspoon cloves (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
  • 3/8 teaspoon ground ginger (optional)
  • 1/8 to 1/4 cup chopped mixed nut (optional)
  • 1 bar unsweetened chocolate, melted in a double boiler with Stevia equivalent to 1 cup sugar (or to taste)

Instructions

  1. Mix together dry ingredients. Add Almond "Milk" and nut butter and blend together. Place in a parchment or foil lined 8X8 pan. Bake in a 245 degree oven for 3 hours. Cool and top with melted chocolate. When the chocolate hardens a bit, but not too much, cup the cookies into 16ths (4X4). Cool in the refrigerator until the chocolate hardens all the way. Break the cookies apart and store in a plastic container in the refrigerator.
