Total 9g net carbs per 100g
380 calories, 24g fat, 13g protein

 

Ingredients:
I didn’t have hazelnuts as per the original recipe, so used a mixture of ground almonds and finely chopped walnuts instead. I am using Xylitol as the sweetener, plus I added some cinnamon and nutmeg to the original recipe.

  • 75g ground almonds
  • 50g finely chopped walnuts
  • 2 egg whites
  • 50g Xylitol
  • 1 tsp ground cardamom
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • 0.5 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 squares dark chocolate (I am using Cavalier brand, sweetened with Stevia)

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 200C/Gas Mark 6
  • Mix almons, walnuts, xylitol and spices
  • Whisk egg whites lightly and mix in with the dry ingredients
  • Form small mounds on a greased baking tray (I had 7 cookies made from the amounts above)
  • Bake for about 10-15 minutes

Nutritional information:
In total, using the amounts above:

  • per 100 grams of the mixture – 380 cal, 9g net carbs, 24g fat, 13g protein
  • per 1 cookie (36g) – assuming 7 cookies  are made from amounts listed above – 136 cals, 3g net carbs, 9g fat, 5g protein

Overall impression:
These are great – super quick and easy, and really tasty! The square of chocolate gives it a nice extra oomph! factor.  The only thing I didn’t get quite right is the amount of Xylitol – it is very sweet, so I will try to use less next time
Highly recommend this and thanks again to Swedish Diet for the original recipe!

  1. The modifications you made sound amazing!
    I’ve never used xylitol though since I like stevia and erythritol so much.
    Thanks for the cred 🙂

    1. Thank you for the recipe! I’ve only just started using xylitol – it seems much sweeter than Splenda so I need to be more careful with it 🙂
