I've been sugarless since 2013! (Because of a Candida overgrowth in my gut).
Here are some sweet ways I found to go without sugar or carbs while still getting a little of the comfort life has to offer.
easy peanut butter chocolate chunk cookies
1/2 cup peanuts only peanut butter (or any unsweetened nut butter)
1/4 cup coconut flour
2-3 tsp stevia
2 oz. unsweetened baker’s chocolate, coarsely chopped.
Preheat oven to 325°F.
Mix all ingredients together with a spoon until smooth. Roll into balls and flatten by hand into cookie shapes (these will Not change shape in the oven). Put on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 325 for 10 minutes. Let cool before removing from sheet. If they're a little stuck, try twisting them.
Makes about 6-8 small cookies. Do not refrigerate. Cookies last 3-4 days (if you don't eat them by then!)
Add nuts, seeds, unsweetened cranberries - whatever - for a great breakfast cookie!
2 tbsp virgin coconut oil at room temperature
2 tbsp cocoa
1 tsp stevia dissolved in
4 tsp warm water
1 1/4 tbsp coconut flour
Unsweetened shredded coconut for rolling
Using a fork, mash the coconut oil and cocoa together until smooth in a medium mixing bowl (this WILL happen, even if it doesn't seem like it to begin with). It should be the consistency of a thick paste.
Dissolve the stevia into the warm water. Mix it up as much as possible to dissolve all the stevia, but don't add extra water. And the stevia mixture to the coconut oil and cocoa mixture.
Still using a fork, mix until smooth (this will look disgusting at this point).
Add the coconut flour and continue mixing with the fork until smooth (making sure it's smooth at each step is key here.) It should be like a light dough.
Roll by hand into balls and roll in the unsweetened shredded coconut. Do not refrigerate.
Makes about 8-9 truffles. I haven't been able to scale it up to make a larger batch. The amounts go wonky. If you feel the need to make more, just repeat!
